School News & Announcements


June 13, 2014                                                    


WOW! Ten months have gone by very, very quickly. As I look at the calendar, I find it hard to believe that the end our of 2013-13 school year is here!   As we look toward the next school year, your child’s ending point will be our beginning point for planning 2014-15.  During our last few weeks of school, we were busy assessing your child on his or her current levels in all subjects and will be sharing those results on the last report card of the year.   Report cards for PK-5 grade were sent home with students on the last day of school.  Report cards for Middle School will be mailed home from the school district next week.


Plans are underway for next year with schedules to be formed, class lists to be organized, a few teachers to be hired and some teachers switching grades. This is a process that lasts for a large part of the summer as our allocations depend on our enrollment. If you know of any children who are kindergarten age, please recommend that their parents come to register their children early. This helps us know how many classes we will be allowed so that we may make arrangements earlier rather than later. You may contact me in writing if you want to make me aware of the types of teacher characteristics that would best meet your child’s needs. I do not take specific teacher requests, but I do pay close attention to letters concerning teacher types that work best for your child. You are the BEST expert on your child.


We continue to be a school of excellence, in no small part, because of your support. Thanks to all families who supported our school this year, by volunteering, visiting, or simply by supporting your child at home with homework or projects.   We thank all Faubion School teachers and staff for their dedication, compassion and going above and beyond for our PK-8 students and families.


On behalf of all our students, staff and parents, huge thanks goes to the PTA Board, Design Advisory Group members, Concordia University and all our valuable partnerships for their hard work and dedication to our students. Our best wishes go to our eighth graders as they transition to the High School. We are very proud of all you have accomplished. We will miss all of you!

Thanks again for all of your support. We look forward to serving those of you who will be joining

 us for our 2014-2015 school year!  Have a safe and wonderful summer break!
