Fayette schools open Aug. 18 8.12.09

Posted in 2009 August

Fayette school district parents and students are invited to a back-to-school open house from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18.

The open house gives students the opportunity to learn the location of classrooms and to meet with teachers.

The program also gives parents a chance to inquire about transportation issues and to pay lunch money and school fees.

ELEMENTARY—Elementary school principal Dr. LuAnn Boyer invites parents of third and fourth grade students to come at 6 p.m. to learn about the split third/fourth grade classroom. The meeting is scheduled in room 107.

Some of the third and fourth grade students will be together in the same room part of the day and separate for certain subjects, such as reading and mathematics.

Amy Herman will teach in the third grade homeroom and Sarah Kruse will teach in the fourth grade homeroom. Kylie Rufenacht will lead the third/fourth split class.

When Beth Mohr left the district to take a job with the Stryker district, Brittan Bosco was next on the list to call back from layoff, but she was hired in Bryan. That made an opening for Brad Raby to return and he will teach fifth and sixth grade mathematics.

Dr. Boyer said last week there were 32 children enrolled for kindergarten.

HIGH SCHOOL—Secondary principal Dan Feasel has scheduled an orientation session for seventh grade students and parents at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the cafeteria, before the open house.

He will review school rules, such as the use of cell phones and the dress code, including the minimum length for shorts.

Mr. Feasel noted there are no changes in staff this year and he’s looking forward to another good academic year.

“We’re going to work toward continuing to be excellent,” he said, in reference to the district’s state rating.

Classes begin Wednesday morning, Aug. 19.
