Dear FPA Parents and Guardians,
Happy Thursday, FPA Family!!!!
Thank you to all of our FPA family members, who attended this year’s Open House! We had a great time kicking off the school year right! Also, our 8th grade parents are AWESOME! 34 of our 50 parents attended last night’s 8th grade parent meeting—our goal is achieve 100% participation for our next meeting!
Also, I’d like to proudly announce that our Beginning of the Year NWEA testing is officially over. Our teachers have already begun this school year with a strong focus on content, but now that we have fresh data that shows us exactly what each scholar’s strength and area of growth is, we are ready to reach higher heights! Each week on Friday, your scholar will take a short cycle assessment in reading and mathematics that focuses on a skill that is tested on NWEA. Therefore, it is imperative that our scholars are in school every day, but especially on Fridays, so that we can monitor their progress in raising their test scores.
Today at FPA, we had a distinguished guest stop by to speak to our scholars on the importance of goal-setting, being disciplined, being a leader, and working hard. This special guest was Olympic Gold Medalist in Track and Field, Morolake Akinosun!!!! She shared her journey with our scholars, answered tons of questions, passed around her gold medal, took countless pictures and selfies, coached some of our relay runners in PE, and even raced some of scholars! We were so glad to have Morolake visit with us today, but we also wanted her to know that we have some Hall of Famers of our own at FPA. In the picture below, our NWEA Hall of Famers, who scored in the 80th and 90th percentile took a photo together in front of our “Apply Yourself for Success” board!
All scholars must be in complete uniform by Monday, October 16th. Any scholar, who is out of uniform will receive disciplinary consequences. Education is a priority, and we have to, first, show our children that education is a priority to us as parents by sending them prepared and ready for success. Here are research-based benefits of attending a uniform-school:
¨ Reduction of focus on materialism
¨ Reduction in bullying
¨ Improved feelings of community
¨ Reduction of violence (external community can easily identify a school-aged scholar by uniforms)
¨ Reduction in non-academic distractions
¨ Improved morning routines for parents
¨ Encouragement of finding other forms to express individuality
¨ Increased safety and security in a healthy, non-competitive learning environment
¨ Teaching responsibility, discipline, and professionalism
¨ Boost in school spirit and school pride!
