RISE UP!                                 Summer Memo for FVES                     July 25, 2019

Happy Summer! 

We are so busy planning and preparing for YOU and excited about some upcoming events! This message is sent via School messenger through phone, text link, and email- if you are connected and up to date in Powerschool! 


  • Tomorrow, July 26th, from 11-12, come enjoy a popsicle and load up on free books at the Fuquay-Varina Splash Pad. Our mini bus will then travel to Lincoln Heights and deliver the same to our students participating in Summer Camp! The mini bus will ride again the week of August 5th! Stay tuned! 


  • Teacher Placements for 1st-5th graders will be mailed out to you on Monday, August 19th! 



  • Our Meet the Teacher for 1st -5th Grade students will be August 22nd from 4-5:30 PM. At this event, come meet your teacher, see your classmates, and join the PTA for the special -ONE DAY ONLY- PTA membership blast price of $6.00 for an individual and $10.00 for a family.


  • Our first day of school this year for 1st-5th graders is Monday, August 26th. Our arrival time is 8:45 AM for all students and our tardy bell rings at 9:15 AM. Please allow 10 minutes for your student to arrive at school before the bell to get settled instead of feeling rushed. This makes for a great start to the day! 


  • Our kindergarten families should expect a mailing to come home the week of August 5th. This mailing will explain staggered entry and give important information. We also are launching a new Kindergarten WEBSITE filled with information- just for you! Kindergarten staggered entry week is one day during the first week of school for each child. The first day for all kindergarteners will be Tuesday, September 3rd. 


  • For all students, September 2nd is a school holiday to observe Labor Day. We will not have school this day.


  • On September 3rd, our Kindergarteners, along with all 1st-5th grade students will all be in attendance! This is our first day with all 810 students in the building! 



    We have just launched “Ways to Connect with FVES” on our website, Twitter and PTA Facebook accounts. Check out the flyer linked here as well! Please SHARE the information and CONNECT with us! We need your help to reach all families this year! 


We can’t wait to see you all soon!
