August 30, 2016 – Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Dear Fern Parents and Guardians,

I hope that all families enjoyed a relaxing summer vacation filled with plenty of time for fun, reading, extra sleep, and leisurely activities. It is exciting to return for my third year as Fern’s principal. I am grateful to continue to be surrounded by a dedicated, energetic, and kind school community. For those families new to Fern, I would like to extend a very special welcome. Our dedicated staff has been working hard preparing for another amazing school year. We will build on the successes and achievements of last year and continue to SOAR! I am certain your child(ren)’s school experience at Fern will be amazing!

I ask all of our families to support Fern in three small, but very important ways. First, show your appreciation to our wonderful teachers and staff whenever you can. Second, become involved in PTA. Your membership is critical and your time and talent are needed. We have exciting events and programs planned this year that can only work if everyone pitches in. Finally, I ask all of our families to make a pledge to volunteer in at least one NEW school activity/event. Multiple studies show that students are more engaged and achieve at higher levels when parents/guardians are involved and connected to their school. Here’s are few back to school events that I hope you able to attend.

September 1, 2016
*9:00 am - TK/K Parent/Guardian meeting in the staff lounge (if possible, adults only).
*12:00-1:00pm - New Family Welcome & School Tour at the Fern cafeteria patio.

*5:00-6:00pm – “Meet & Greet & Reconnect” at the Fern cafeteria patio. Popsicles with the principal, purchase a Fern shirt, join our wonderful PTA, and sign up to volunteer to support our school!

*Dismissal times for September 8th and 9th - TK/K at 11:50am, Grades 1/2/3 at
3:03pm and Grades 4/5 at 3:12pm.
*TK/K students do not need to bring a lunch, only a snack for 9/8 and 9/9. All other grades should bring a snack and lunch.
*Welcome Back meeting and coffee with principal/Fern PTA at 9:15am - cafeteria.


Let’s make it a wonderful year at Fern! We will focus on improving student learning and strengthening our school community. I look forward to seeing you on campus.
