Dear Fryelands Families,

On December 9th your child will be bringing home the first report card of the year.
A team of teachers, administrators and parents created this Standards-based Report Card. The purpose of this report card is to communicate how your child performs on grade level standards. This report card is specific to each grade level. The Standards-based Report Card was created to assess the Washington State K-12 Learning Standards and student learning behaviors. In using this report card at this time of the year, students may receive 1’s and 2’s because they are developing toward grade level standards but are not there yet. We understand you might have questions. There is a parent guide on the Monroe Public Schools portal that you are able to access. From the homepage, click on Academics in the menu on the left. Click on Curriculum by Grade. Select the Report Card Guide for Parents at the grade level you need. We appreciate your continued partnership in supporting the success of your child.

What is The Hour of Code? Next week, Dec. 5-9 is the official Hour of Code Week around the world. It's a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, and an innovator. There are some exciting resources you might want to use with your child on the computer and some videos that help explain coding and the Hour of Code. Some of our teachers are introducing it to students in the computer lab as part of their technology learning in the next several weeks.
The website code.org has some fantastic resources you can use with your child. There are 1-hour tutorials with a variety of titles: Moana, Minecraft, Star Wars, Anna & Elsa, Angry Birds, and more. The tutorials can be done by students without you needing to sign up or without them having to login. It’s ok if you are a learner right along with your child. Another resource is a YouTube channel by code.org that will provide you with several video options. Kids can work on the Hour of Code website at school or at home. It’s a great introduction to computer science.

Our Student Senate Toy Drive ends Dec. 9th. Thank you for your generosity and kindness to help make our toy drive a success this year to benefit the Sky Valley Food Bank patrons. Cash donations are also accepted and every $5 counts as one toy item. They are in most need of items for children ages 10-13 years old. We are doing a great job collecting toys and money this year!!!

Toy Drive Goal: 500 items
If goal is reached: We will have a Toys From Home Day on December 15th

The most important educational benefit for your child is to either read to them or have them read to you every day for at least 20 minutes. It is the single biggest contribution you can make to your child’s education and it doesn’t cost anything. Our children love the one-on-one interaction with their parents and the benefits go well beyond just reading skills.
If you have questions, ideas, or concerns to share, please contact me at presleyj@monroe.wednet.edu or at 360-804-3400.

We Want Our Kids to be Safe

There are 563 students attending Fryelands Elementary School.  That means there are potentially over 1,000 parents and/or guardians that come onto our campus on any given day.  In any system this large, it is paramount that everyone follow the safety procedures and systems that are in place.  Safety of your child and the other 562 students is our number one priority. 

There are 2 ways to drop off your child before school.

#1 Students may be dropped off in the front Drop Off Area near the building
#2 Parents may park their vehicle and walk with their child to the front door

The following are not approved methods of drop off:

  • Letting students out of your car in the middle of the parking lot traffic
  • Parking your car in the handicapped parking for a quick “drop off”

There are 3 ways to pick up your child after school.

#1 FROM THE FLAG POLE
 (Park your car and walk up to the flag pole to pick up your student)

#2 FROM YOUR CAR
(You may wait in line at the car drop/pick up area in your vehicle,
this takes no more than 15 minutes after school)

#3 FROM THE NORTH GATE
(Park your car and walk up to the fence to pick up your student at the North Gate)

The following are not approved methods of pick up:

  • Having your child walk to Tye Park to meet you
  • Waiting for your child in your parked car for them to come to you on or off campus
  • Picking up your child at the front doors or front crosswalk (please use flagpole area)
  • Waiting for your child at any location other than those listed above, including outside the classroom, out front by the office area, or in the hallways
  • Using the handicapped parking spaces, at any time to stop or park, unless displaying handicapped decal in window or on license plate
  • Walking up to car pick up (Door #3) to get your child
Your support and assistance with these guidelines and procedures is appreciated.  Staff have been directed to speak with anyone not following these procedures.  Please treat them with respect as they do their job.  Our goal is your child’s safety and that of each and every student at Fryelands.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.


Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
