Hello Falcons!! Due to inclement weather and a winter storm warning we will be closing school for tomorrow, Thursday, February 16th. Happy Snow Day and please be safe! As always, contact our office with any questions.
8th grade students resumed a winter tradition here at Fontana! In science class with Mrs. Rabe, students assembled a wooden cubicle frame and began scooping snow into an opening at the top. From there, students took turns volunteering to climb in and stomp the snow down. During art class with Mr. McCanna, students formed groups and brainstormed sculpture ideas using floral foam as their prototypes. Finally, they used shovels, trowels, and brushes to bring their snow creations to life! Students and families enjoyed these fun, frosty formations until mother nature decided she'd had enough with them!"
It's almost February. Do you know what that means? Yes, you guessed it, HOT CHOCOLATE FRIDAYS!!

Happy Veteran's Day and thank you for your service from your Falcon Family. Don't forget, our annual Veteran's Day Assembly is today at 2pm in the school gym. Fontana would like to honor and thank all who served our Country. Thank you.
Our middle school English class had a great courtroom experience this past week. They were able to practice being prosecutors, defendants, and jury members. Their note taking, attention to detail, and speaking/written language was impressive. Many also "dressed the part", which added to the experience. Great job.
What does a typical week look like for a Falcon you ask? Our students are engaged in community activities, experiences inside/outside of the classroom, highly interactive classroom activities, multiple after school programs, and learning that reaches all students. Our teachers go above and beyond to ensure every student is learning every day regardless of age or ability. Thank you to Abbey Resort and ATI Forged Products for donating bikes to our school and partnering with us for the betterment of our community!!
Our 8th grade students had the pleasure of spending an entire class period talking with world renowned artist Tim Jacobus. Mr. Jacobus is best known for being the cover artist of the Goosebumps book series, however, he is incredibly inspirational in so many ways. Tim shared his daily routines that have been a part of his long term success including at least one hour every morning for self-care. Visit his Jacobus Studios website where every purchase will also feed those in need. Mr. McCanna raffled off one piece of framed art from Mr. Jacobus to seal the amazing experience.
