Principal's Message

Spring weather is upon us. Please remember that this is still early spring and temperatures may fluctuate considerably. Just because the sun may be out doesn’t mean that the temperature is up. Listen to weather reports and have your child dress accordingly. Layering in clothing is a great idea. It is easier to take off layers to stay cool than it is to try to stay warm. Remember, too, that the open playground area can become quite windy which can greatly affect the temperature here at the school.

Also with spring comes all the pretty new clothes and footwear. Please be aware that while sandals, “slides” (open heel shoes) and flip-flops are fun footwear, they are often the reason for falls and injuries. Falls from playground equipment while wearing slippery sandals, cuts on toes and feet from the mulch, and stubbed toes from hitting the blacktop while running at recess are just a few of the common injuries seen in the clinic during the springtime. Please be aware that the playground is an extension of the classroom where our students develop both social and basic motor skills. The selection of shoes should be the same as for other clothing. The best shoes are those that protect the foot from injury and allow full participation in all activities. While we work hard to keep our playground equipment and grounds safe for our students, many injuries are directly related to the choice of footwear. If your child desires to wear sandals, we strongly recommend that they change into athletic shoes so that they are adequately prepared for recess.

Also, we can’t stress enough the importance of keeping shoelaces tied. We have had a number of injuries related to children tripping over their own shoelaces or those of another child. Make sure your child knows how to double knot shoelaces to help keep them tied and cut shoelaces that are very long.

Your support and cooperation will help in keeping our students safe.

If you have specific questions, concerns or simply want to share your insights, please do not hesitate to contact our school. Our goal is to improve daily which can only happen with your support, confidence and wisdom.

April Events

School Library Month

April is School Library Month! We are very fortunate to have a wonderful library at Frank available to all of our students. We also thank Mrs. Siebeneck for all of her efforts.

National Poetry Month

April is also national poetry month! We encourage you to celebrate this month by reading poetry at home as a family throughout the month.

Poem in a Pocket Day

We will also be celebrating on Thursday, April 27. We will have poem in a pocket day. All students and staff are encouraged to keep a poem in a pocket that day and share the poem with 2 other people throughout the day!

Frank Field Day and Class Picnics

Frank field day and school picnics (for grades 1-5) for the 2016-17 school year are planned for Friday, May 19th. Students in grades three, four and five will participate in field day activities in the morning, while students in grades one and two will participate in field day activities in the afternoon. A more detailed schedule for field day and our school picnics will be sent home as that date approaches.

If we do experience rainy weather, we will push field day to May 23.

Parents are allowed to come to watch the field day activities. In addition, there will be a sign up coming for parents who would like to help with field day sessions.

Kdg Water Day

The Water Day for kindergarten is scheduled for Friday, May 19th. Water Day times: Smith/AM Kdg: 9:30-11 AM; Evans/PM Kdg: 1:15-2:45. This is a much anticipated day for our students!

Jacket Way Assembly

The second semester Jacket Way Assembly will be on May 15. During this assembly, 2 students from each grade level will have the opportunity to take part in the semester incentive. Two students from each grade level will play the game "Punch a Bunch" from the Price is Right. Each student will recieve a prize and one student will receive the grand prize. It will be a great event!

The more Jacket Way tickets that a student earns, the greater the opportunity to be chosen for the game.
Students are encouraged to be respectful, responsible, and ready to earn Jacket Way tickets! 
GRITSTER of the Month

We are starting a new monthly recognition for our students in March.

Each month, we will recognize one student from each grade level for being the “Gritster” at that grade level. This is a student who shows perseverance and does not give up, while being willing to try new things and has a passion/desire to complete tasks.

The names of the students will be highlighted in the Frank Talks, read on the announcements, and the picture of these students will be displayed on a GRIT bulletin board in the building.

Weekly Book Reviews

If your child reads a great book and would like to write a book review, we would be happy to have your child read the book review on the AM announcements.
