    From the BoxTops Committee 

It’s hard to believe, but our last collection date of the school year is coming right up! Our third and final Box Tops collection date will THIS Friday, June 9th, so feel free to start dropping your clipped, unexpired BoxTops in the collection box in the main lobby any time in the coming weeks. Thanks to you, we’re over 60% of the way to our goal of $2,000 for the school year – let’s finish strong!

Many box tops have already been received, so thank you to those who have already turned them in!

As a reminder, we ask that BoxTops be returned to us in baggies labeled with the names of the student and their teacher and the number of Box Tops included, or pasted/taped onto a collection sheet (see attached). Remember, expired BoxTops cannot be redeemed so please make sure to turn your BoxTops in by each collection date! For more information on the BoxTops for Education program, including a list of participating products and our school’s progress, visit www.BTFE.com. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Sally Richards at pcvschicker@yahoo.com.

Book Collection for The Little Free Library
The school is collecting books to use to fill up the Little Free Library in front of the school during the summer.  If you have any to contribute, please donate them to provide students with something new to read over the summer months.

Rising 6th Graders
If you haven’t already done so PLEASE make sure your child has received the TDAP booster for 6th grade and send it into Shirley Eason in the office. This is a mandatory vaccine in order to start 6th grade.

School Directory
  • The online school directory will shut down on August 1 to prepare for the new school year. If you have information you want for future reference, please save or print before August 1, as the 6th graders will be graduated out of the system at that time, and the directory will be offline for a few weeks.
  • If you will have a new student (kindergarten or otherwise) starting at FHES in the fall, please send an email to directory@fhespta.org as soon as possible and your student will be added to your family’s record for you. You do not need to create a new family entry.

If you have any directory-related questions, please email Natacha Moore at directory@fhespta.org.
