Frenchtown School

Frenchtown students are working on acts of Kindness. There is a large blue postal mailbox in the lobby gathering random acts of kindness. Those kind acts are highlighted during our morning announcements.

Frenchtown will be participating in the Mileage Club/Final Mile this year. As of right now, we have almost 200 students signed up. The fall component of the club will run on Wednesdays and Fridays for four weeks (from Oct 25 through Nov. 17). Volunteers will help track student miles during recess. Kindergarten and first grade will run their miles around their playground, while second through fifth grade will run on the back track. The idea is for the running to last from five minutes to as long as the students want to run, (based on the day’s suggested laps).

Thursday, Nov. 2 will be a legal day dismissal at 1 p.m., for afternoon conferences.

Wednesday, Nov. 8, will also be a legal day dismissal at 1 p.m., but for evening conferences. No lunch will be served on these dates. Conferences are by appointment only and sign-ups were online.

The Frenchtown Fathers’ Club will be holding their first Parents Night Out on Saturday, Nov. 4. They will start with an exclusive showing of Bad Mom Xmas at Bow Tie Cinemas at 5 p.m., followed by an evening of food and fun at InSports from 7-10 p.m.

No school for students on Tuesday, Nov. 7, Election Day. Teachers will participate in Professional Development workshops.

Nov. 22 will be a legal day dismissal at 1 p.m., with no lunch served.
