Parent Teacher Conferences

Believe it or not, Parent Teacher Conferences are just a couple of weeks away!  They are scheduled for October 11th and 12th.  Our kindergarten teachers will also have appointments available on the 13th. Be sure to take a couple of minutes and click on the tab above to schedule a time for you to meet with your child's teacher.  (First come, first serve!!)

If your child receives Special Education services, (ex: resource and/or speech) please be sure to also  sign up for a time to visit with Mrs. Nish (resource) and/or Mrs. Cornwall (speech).

We can't wait to visit with all of you!

Lice Lessons/Life Lessons

The National Association of School Nurses states:

"Head lice are a common community problem. An estimated 6-12 million infestations occur each year in the United States, most commonly among children ages 3 to 11 years old.  Though a head lice infestation is often spotted in school, it is usually acquired through direct head-to-head contact elsewhere, such as sleepovers or camp.

Head lice are not dangerous, and they do not transmit disease. Additionally, despite what you might have heard, head lice often infest people with good hygiene and grooming habits. Your family, friends, or community may experience head lice. It's important to know some basics, including how to recognize symptoms and what to do if faced with an infestation."

Our district's school nurses have provided some helpful information regarding head lice.  Check out this link for additional information.

Project H.A.T.S. (Helping A Texas School)

Fielding Elementary will be joining other schools in our district in some much needed service! We will be adopting an elementary school in Houston, one that has been affected by the recent hurricane and subsequent flooding. We are currently in the process of being matched with a specific school. We will be collecting donations of basic school supplies (listed below) and taking monetary donations. (Please make any checks out to Fielding Elementary.) Once we are assigned our specific school, we will use the donated money to purchase specific items online and have them shipped directly to the school.

Our students will have the opportunity to serve in many ways, including: collecting items for donation, earning and donating money, organizing and boxing supplies, and writing notes of encouragement, love, and support. We’ll include the notes in our shipment!

King Farms Trucking will be sending a truck with the donated items next Friday...so we don’t have much time! Please pass the word along and have anyone wishing to donate bring their contributions to the school. Thanks for your help! Together, we can make a difference for some students in Texas!

Supplies:

  • Box of crayons (24 count) 
  • #2 pencils 
  • Expo Dry Erase Markers 
  • Glue Sticks  Ziploc Bags (gallon or quart) 
  • Boxes of Tissues  Spiral Notebooks
