FES Celebrates Kindness Week

November 20, 2019

Students and staff celebrated Kindness Week November 13th-15th. The staff was treated to a snack from the Social Committee Sunshine Cart. Students received kindness bracelets, special lunch messages, and were able to write compliments to each other in the lunchroom. Every grade level participated in Random Act of Kindness by surprising another class with notes and treats and Mrs. Saltsman's 4th grade music class surprised the office with a song. https://youtu.be/TuHQ3aLVMzE

New Fast Pass for Visitors

November 12, 2019

We are excited to offer a new, faster way to check in when you visit FES. If you are already in the Raptor System, you can use the new Fast Pass Kiosk to scan your Driver’s License and print your visitor badge. These kiosks will be used for special events, when we have a large number of people checking in at one time.

Remember, you will need your Driver’s License in order to use the Fast Pass System, and you must be already in the Raptor System.  All other visitors will still have to present their Driver’s License and check in with Miss Glenda. We will begin using Fast Pass on November 20th for the Thanksgiving Lunch. Please call the office at 850-892-1211 if you have any questions.

 Johnny Appleseed Rock Your School DayFreeport Elementary flipped their classrooms for Rock the House Day on September 19, 2019.  Each grade transferred their classrooms around a learning theme. 

 Students in Kindergarten celebrated Johnny Appleseed with fun activities including apple tasting.  Students and teachers dressed like Johnny Appleseed.  First grade students explored bats based on their reading of Stella Luna.  They loved an echolocation activity, stem activities with flying bats and reading with flashlights. Rock the House-Bats

Second grade walked a runway like movie stars with descriptive adjectives and number bonds.  The students and teachers loved dressing for the runway. 

Rock the House-Decomposing numbersThird grade students became surgeons and surgically decomposed numbers using the distributive property and enjoyed travelling through the regions of the United States.  Other fantastic events included a library tour through Washington D.C, Mrs. Saltsman's drum circle outside, mining for syllables, and many EPIC activities!

Freeport Elementary School had a huge turnout for their Watch Dog Dads Program. Over 150 dads attended the Pizza Night for students, fathers, and father-figures and signed up to volunteer throughout our school!  This is the 2nd year that FES has partnered with the program to bring positive male role models into the school.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Mrs. Pannell at [email protected]  of call 892-1211, ext. 2363

"The WATCH D.O.G.S.® program was created by a group of parents and educators in a single school in 1998, and has since grown to one of the largest and most respected family and community engagement initiatives in the country.

Each year thousands of schools across the country utilize the WATCH D.O.G.S. ® program to reach out to the fathers and father-figures of their students and invite those men to take at least one full day off work during the school year and spend that entire day volunteering in their child’s school. Each year WATCH D.O.G.S. ® generates millions of in-school volunteer hours in support of our students and educators across the country.

Program benefits 
• Students gain a positive male role model. Some students do not have a father-figure present in their home and the number of male teachers has been steadily declining in recent years. More positive male role models are needed in the school setting.
• Schools gain an extra set of eyes and ears. The presence of WatchDOGS (Dads Of Great Students) can increase a sense of security at the building for students and staff, and it helps create an environment conducive to learning.
• Fathers and father-figures can spend meaningful time with their students in the school setting and gain a greater awareness of the positive impact they can have on their student’s life, just by being a ‘dad’.
• When WatchDOGS invest a day at school, they can learn how better to partner with the school to meet the educational goals of students."

Freeport Elementary is excited to continue this program for their school and community!
