FSOA 11/14 Secondary Parent Communication

**This communication is for students in grades 6-12.  Information for our elementary students will be in a separate email.**

 

Hello Parents and Guardians,

 

We have a full week of learning ahead and then Thanksgiving break! We hope to see you at Your Pie Pizza Fundraiser. 

 

Your Pie Pizza Fundraiser

Hey Phoenix! Do you like pizza? Do you want to help support our school? If you answered yes to both of these questions, please join us at "Your Pie Pizza" in Thornton on Wednesday November 16th for a fundraiser! All sales between 4pm and 8pm will have a portion of the sale donated to FSOA! Hope to see you there!

 

End of Semester / Final Exam Schedule

At the end of first semester, we will have an adjusted schedule to account for final exams and a Winter Break celebration!

  • Finals will take place on Tuesday, December 13th and Wednesday, December 14th.  For the complete schedule, click here. 

    • All high school classes will have a final exam or culminating project

    • All middle school classes will have a final exam, unit exam, or culminating project

    • Students will be required to log into class and take the exams during the time shown.  

    • Please note that exams are intended to be 60 minutes in length.  Extra time (+50%) is built into this schedule, to allow for students who have an accommodation on their 504 or IEP.
