June 2018

 

As our academic year draws to a close, we have so much to celebrate.  I want to thank you for the endless hours of volunteering, reading with your child, chaperoning, and making your child's education a priority.  A special thank you to the PTO who went above and beyond the call of duty to provide educational opportunities and resources to add to the already rich school experience. 

Our students have had a fabulous year here at Frisbie.  They have excelled in so many areas that it is hard to list them all.  Frisbie students have made tremendous gains on the i-Ready math assessment as a result of the hard work and dedication of the students and staff.  Our emphasis this year was on problem solving and applying the Bee A Problem Solver Framework, especially when solving word problems.  Another area of growth has been their improvement in word meaning and vocabulary.  In the upper grade levels, students are being exposed to prefixes, suffixes, greek and latin roots as it is an important part of building better readers.

As a school community, we have participated in various service projects throughout the year to benefit those in need.  In the fall, we raised over one thousand dollars for hurricane victims in Puerto Rico and Texas.  Students participated in three food drives this year that helped stack the shelves of the Wolcott Food Pantry.  Our penny wars raised over five hundred dollars for the Wolcott Special Olympic Games towards helping our special athletes.  On June 2nd, the Frisbie Flyers participated in the Relay for Life in Wolcott to join the fight against cancer by raising over five thousand five hundred.  Congratulations to Frisbie community for helping out such worthwhile organizations. 

As the end of the year comes to a close, I want to congratulate all students on a successful school year. To those of you leaving for new places and adventures, we wish you all the best.  Congratulations to our fifth grade students as they continue their academic career at Tyrrell.   We wish you all a very safe and enjoyable summer.  

 

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Kimberly Murtaugh - Principal
