Harwood's Track in the Woods for Future Harwood Students!

I am blogging this out on behalf of Rob Williams and the Friends of Harwood TRACK IN THE WOODS fundraising team.  This future track will be of benefit to our students and families here at FES!   They are asking for our help in supporting a new TRACK IN THE WOODS @ Harwood High School via an IndieGogo campaign.

Here is a 90 second video and how to donate for Harwood's TRACK IN THE WOODS:

This will be a community resource for ALL of us to enjoy for decades to come.

PS - We have a $5,000 donation on the table if we can crack $10,000 at our IndieGogo campaign by Friday, October 23rd. Time is of the essence. Every dollar and donor matter.

Fayston Open House- Tuesday, October 6th 5:30-6:30

Dear Families,

We look forward to seeing you at our Open House on Tuesday, October 6th from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. There will be scavenger hunts to help guide your experience. This is a true open house, so come by when it works for you, but plan that you'll need at least 20 minutes.  Just before our open house there will be an introduction to Personal Learning Plans for 5th and 6th graders in Mrs. Vasseur's classroom from 5:00-5:30.

Our sense of community is so important to our school and we see our open house as one of many opportunities to connect between home and school to foster our partnership in educating children.
Thank you for respecting that open house is not a time where staff can speak about individual students' progress in specificity. Such discussions are best done via phone, email or in person when there can be greater confidentiality and time for thoughtful discussion.
