Greetings Frisbie Parents and Guardians,

 

The beginning of a new school year is quickly approaching.  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer filled with adventures and good health. We are so excited to have the students back in our classrooms filling them with energy and the enthusiasm for learning.

 

Each year brings change.  This includes a few additions to our staff.  We are delighted to welcome June Fishbein, our new Grade 4 Teacher.  June brings an exceptional work ethic and knowledge of innovative learning practices.  Deb Golden is joining us at Frisbie as our Paraprofessional- Library Assistant and will be working with our students in small reading groups.  We are fortunate to have them as part of our Frisbie team.  

 

If you have driven past the school, you may have noticed numerous maintenance projects.  The custodial staff has trimmed the bushes and beautified the grounds.  The gymnasium floor has been redone with a new Frisbie Bee in the middle.  

 

As a staff, we are confident that Frisbie Elementary will challenge your child academically. One focus this year will be to continue to implement the Common Core mathematics and literacy standards furthering our work on literacy and mathematical strategies across the curriculum.  Also, we will continue to use student benchmark assessments to improve student learning.  

 

I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know all of you this year and engage in the educational process together.  I am a true believer that communication is key.  As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.  I hope you enjoy the remaining days of the summer.  Please make sure your child brings their reading log and math packet to school.  We are looking forward to seeing your child on the first day, August 28th.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Kimberly Murtaugh
