Flyer Students & Families,


It is almost August! I am getting ready for another great school year at Farristown!  I hope you all have had a restful summer break.  I am anxious to see everyone again, and I am sure you are looking forward to seeing your teachers and friends.


As we prepare for this school year, there are a few changes at Farristown.  We will be welcoming some new teachers and staff into our school.  I am so excited for you to meet them.  They are going to be fabulous Flyers! There are also a few changes with dress code and the cell phone policy.  You can check those changes out on the school website under the school information tab.  Under school information, you will also see a Renaissance tab.  There, you can see the powerpoint that outlines Renaissance and our theme for this school year.  


As we move into August, there are lots of activities going on.  Several sports seasons are getting underway.  Those schedules are also posted on our website.  We also have SOAR Camp for incoming 6th graders on August 14th.  That will start at 8:30, and all 6th graders should attend if at all possible.  They will get schedules that day and meet teachers! The 7th and 8th graders will have a Back to School Night on August 14th at 6:00pm.  Schedules can be picked up at that time.  If you miss either of these events, you can pick up schedules starting on August 15th.  School t-shirts will be sold during both of these events.  


We are working hard to get ready for a fun, positive year full of lots of learning! I hope you finish out the summer break with lots of fun and rest so that you can be ready to get back to school and work hard! I am so looking forward to seeing the halls fill up with students.  I will see you soon.
