Frost Lake Monthly Newsletter

  • October 7, 2019

     

    Dear Frost Lake Families,

     

    It’s hard to believe that we already in the second month of school!  Students have settled into building and classroom routines.  If you come to school during the day (which we encourage and invite you to do), you might not believe that we are educating over 500 students everyday here.  We’re proud of how our students are coming to school every day to learn and we thank you, their parents and guardians, for your partnership in their education.

     

    You should have received a postcard from the district informing you of the District’s Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.  I would encourage you to review this as well as the Frost Lake School Handbook as a family.   Both of these resources can be found at frost.spps.org under the Families Section.  

     

    What a fall we have had so far!  It’s been very inconsistent weather-wise, but one thing is certain, temperatures are on a downward trend.  Unless it is raining heavily, we try to get outside everyday for recess.  Please make sure that your students have appropriate clothing for the cooling temperatures

     

    We’re very excited for a new family engagement event later this month.  The evening of October 24 at 5:30 until 7:30, we have our first World Café.  This is an event designed to have conversations as a community about what is important to us as a school community.  There will also be information about Frost Lake Title I that evening and how we use our funds.  We invite you to join us that evening.

     

    Thank you to all who have completed your iUpdate online or in paper format as well as your Nutrition Services application.  This information is important for us to have as a school so that we have the most up-to-date contact information for you.  Additionally, the Nutritional Services application is not just about lunch money.  Frost Lake receives Title I money that we use to hire additional staff.  How much Title I money we receive is based on how many of our families complete the application.  It’s important for all families to fill out an application even if you don’t believe that you would qualify for free or reduced benefits.  If you need to complete the nutrition services application, you can do so at spps.org/ns

     

    Sincerely,
