From the Principal: Happy Thanksgiving

At FES students are hard at work learning!


Parents, please remember to dress students appropriately for outdoor recesses. We believe it is very important for students to get outside and play even when it is cold outside.


Thanks to Parent Club for a great auction last Saturday! Parent Club raised $9,000. It was so much fun. There was food and amazing items to bid on. We have students who are going to be a teacher for a day and a principal and assistant principal for the day! The items that we were able to bid on were excellent. I hope you all get a chance to come to the Parent Club auction next year. The best part is all the money goes to Parent Club and they use this money to support teachers and students at FES.


I am looking forward to the First Annual Extravaganza on December 4th.


Happy Thanksgiving,

Mrs. Gray

I would like to thank everyone for all of the support for the book fair. All money raised goes back into the library or the classroom. With the success of this book fair, teachers were able to come down and spend $25 in books for their classroom. Thank you!!

Eagle Packs

Dear Families,

A program has been brought to Frankton Community Schools called Eagle Packs.

This program is a community mission sponsored by the local churches and community members. Each bag will contain consumable food for the weekend (breakfast, lunch, and dinner items plus 2 snacks). This is an anonymous program so your child will not be identified to students as receiving the bag.


If you are interested in having your child receive a weekend Eagle Pack

food bag, please click on the link below to enroll your child(ren) for the 2021-22 school year. You need to fill out this registration even if you received Eagle Pack bags last year. Please register ASAP

Thank you,

Eagle Pack Committee
