Menu changes
Hello Falcons! March seems to be heading in with spring like weather. Our 26th week of school brought about the best weather in the last month. Be sure to keep your Falcon dressed for layers and our unpredictable Wisconsin weather. Here are FIVE things to know this week. 1. Our library turtles, Felix and Fiona, are looking for a forever home. This will include the tank, food, and supplies. Due to our current school situation, our students and staff are unable to enjoy them as much as we would like. They are free to right home. Please contact Susan Ziganto in our office or email sziganto@fontana.k12.wi.us 2. Our virtual science fair was a great success. Thank you to the Falcon staff and families for making this happen despite our COVID restrictions. We also had our first all school "outdoor" assembly to recognize the great projects and hand out awards. Great job Falcons! 3. By this weekend, our Falcon staff will have all had the opportunity to get COVID vaccines. Thank you to our school community for working together to allow for our inservice day today. 4. March 2nd was National Reading Day. Our staff celebrated a day of reading and continue to encourage a love of reading. At home, reading to your Falcon, no matter their age, is a great way to support reading alongside our staff! 5. Congratulations to all of the Falcon Honor Roll students at Big Foot. We always review and evaluate our transition to high school. Our class of 2024 had 10 student listed on the Big Foot honor roll, with 7 of those 10 on the high honor roll (GPA 3.7-4.5). Way to go and keep up the great work! The snow is melting and the air is getting warmer! We look forward to our spring semester and all the great activities that allows for our students. Stay well, be safe, and have a great weekend. Your Partners in Education

Hello parents, I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend. As a reminder we have a few adjustments at drop off and pick up that will start tomorrow. 1. Arrival will be for all families between 8am and 8:20a. All students (except daycare 3k and younger) will enter through the main entrance to help with traffic flow and movement to the proper class. (daycare will still enter/leave at the South end of the building as usual). 2. Dismissal for ALL car riders will be 3:20pm. Please adhere to pulling up as far as possible to fill in open spots in the pick up line. All older siblings will move to the South end of the building to meet up with younger siblings. All bus riders will stay with teachers and leave at 3:30p to board the bus. 3. Students will be sent home with an order form on Tuesday September 9th for Fontana neck buffs and face masks. We have a limited supply, but we will do our best to fulfill all requests. Thank you for your interest and all funds collected will go directly back toward student needs. We look forward to week 2 of the new school year. See you all tomorrow! #FlyIntoExcellence

Other News and Notes: We have a limited supply of Fontana Falcons neck buffs for sale. These will be $10 a piece and all the funds will go directly back to student supplies for the year. We have also ordered more Fontana face masks that should be in by the end of the month. We are working on securing the USDA lunch program that was just released by the State. More information to come as we finalize our plans. Picture day is September 14th. All students were sent home with a Lifetouch picture packet. If you did not get one, please call our office and we will be sure you do. This applies to all virtual and in-person students. A packet will be mailed this week to all virtual students or you can stop by the office to pick one up. Picture packets will be given by students directly to Lifetouch on picture day. It's a great day to be a Falcon!! Happy Labor Day Weekend.
