Dear John Fuller Families:

According to the calendar, June starts next week.  I’m not sure whether Mother Nature doesn’t realize this or she is just being cruel.  Either way, the beginning of June means lots of events here at John Fuller.  I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight some:

Today is our annual Fifth and Sixth Grade Track and Field Meet.  This event is held at Kennett High School and provides an opportunity for students across SAU9 to come together for a shared experience.  Our students have been preparing for different events and are very excited to go out and give it their best.  We expect the events to begin around 9:45 am, and hope that many people will be able to come out and cheer on our students!

Falcon Fire will take place from 5-7pm on Thursday, June 5th.  This is our annual school-wide family celebration.  Everyone is invited to take part in the food, games, and fun!  We extend an invitation to our new kindergarten families as well.  In order to make this event a success we need your help.  We are looking for volunteers to help run the different stations for 30 minutes at a time.  If you are willing and able to help, please sign up on the PTA board located outside of the office. Falcon Fire is one of those events that truly make John Fuller a unique and special place!

Our Spring Concert for students in kindergarten through second grade will be on Monday, June 9th at 2:00pm.  The Spring Concert for students in grades 3-6, including our band and chorus, will be on Tuesday, June 10th at 1:45pm.  While these had traditionally been evening events, we decided to try them during the day because we often lose many of our students to other commitments such as baseball at night.  Our students have been practicing for months and are looking forward to sharing their songs and music with you.

On Friday, June 13th we will hold our second annual Career Day.  All students will rotate through stations in the morning, with our third through sixth graders engaging in additional hands-on workshops in the afternoon.  We have a wide range of people from throughout the valley planning to come and share their work experiences with our students.  Our goal is to expose our students to the many career opportunities that exist and help them to see the connection between what we do in school and the skills they will need once they enter the work force.

Popcorn Day for our students in kindergarten through third grade will be held on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 17th.  For this event, our sixth graders facilitate games and students will earn tickets that can be used for popcorn.  Our traditional Field Day for students in grades 4 though 6 will be held on June 19th

On Friday, June 20th we will hold our Promotion Ceremony for our sixth grade students at 5:30pm.  This event provides us with an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the achievements of our sixth graders as they end their journey at John Fuller and move on to Middle School.  Following the ceremony we will hold a small reception for the students and their parents with fruit and cake.

Tuesday, June 24th is the last day of school for the 2013-2014 school year.  On this day we will dismiss students just after lunch, at 12:30pm.  We will have an opportunity to meet as a whole school, have students meet the teachers in the next grade, and hold our sixth grade versus faculty kickball game.  The last day is always bittersweet…there is excitement for summer fun and a little sadness to see the year end. 

As you can see, while the final month of school has arrived, we still have a lot going on here at John Fuller.  This outlines just some of the activities.  In addition, there are many field trips and special events planned for individual classrooms.  Please be on the lookout for notices coming home over the next couple of weeks.   June is a very exciting month.  Each of the events listed above provides the opportunity for our John Fuller community to learn, grow, and reflect on our experiences from throughout the year!
