'Til Next Time Note from the PTO President, Kari Armstrong
Last May was bittersweet for many of us as we were saying good-bye to our schools, teachers and friends. While we were excited about the new school, we wondered if it would be ready in time. We also anticipated making new friends and meeting new teachers.

Now, one year later, I can say that our time at FHES was amazing! What I have loved most is the special community that has blossomed. This community grew through shared class projects and field trips, school-wide events, supporting our teachers and staff, and volunteering in various ways. 

Thank you to each family for a great first year! Have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to many more experiences together at FHES in 2020-2021.
Update from Administration
  • Devices issued to students during the school closure will be kept over the summer.
  • Online registration for new and returning students will begin on July 1, 2020. Like last year, Mr. Percoski is asking that parents register as early as possible because that helps us in planning for the new school year.
  • Yearbooks may be ready in June. We are considering coordinating health-compliant, grade-level celebrations over the summer with the distribution of yearbooks so students can have time to get their friends to sign them. We will communicate through email if so.
