From the Principal

Dear Fryelands Families,

Next week, we will honor and show our appreciation to our awesome secretaries, Ms. Harris and Mrs. Baca, during Administrative Professionals Appreciation Week. These two wonderful ladies come to school with patience and a friendly smile every day to help our students, families, and staff have a great day. Many of you have complimented our office staff for their excellent customer service and welcoming, personal approach. We are so grateful and lucky that Ms. Harris and Mrs. Baca are here as part of our school family.

Happy Earth Day, Fryelands Families!

Our school cares about recycling and conserving resources. We’re proud to partner with Republic Services and Snohomish County to help educate our students about proper recycling and why it’s important to reduce our waste. Did you know that over 30% of the garbage we create in Snohomish County could have been recycled? We are taking action to lower our “garbage footprint” to reduce our waste and recycle paper, cans and bottles in our classrooms and the lunchroom. We have students serving as leaders on our Green Team at lunch to help lead our efforts in this area and now we have just received an award of $200 and a certificate from Snohomish County and Republic Services for our increased recycling efforts!

State testing continues...

WCAP is the Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program which assesses our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students using an on-line testing system to measure proficiency in Math and English Language Arts.

5th graders will also take part in an online Science assessment during this time. Please see the enclosed testing schedule for the dates your child will be testing in April and May.

STAR Awards

There are so many ways to show or tell someone how much you appreciate what they have done for your child at school. STAR awards can be purchased from the Monroe Public Schools Foundation for a minimum donation of $25. These tax deductible donations support foundation activities and show staff they are a STAR. You can make a pledge on the foundation’s website at www.monroepsf.org. It’s a great way to say thanks to an individual for making your child’s education a success.

*Parents ask, “What can I do to help my child with reading?”

   *   Let them see you read every day.

   *   Read to children or have them read to you every day.

   *   Have your child read words or letters on labels, packages, signs, and other every day items.

   *   Have books around the home and a quiet reading time every day. The school or public library is a great resource for books to read.


Thank you for bringing your students to school on time and prepared for learning each day.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at presleyj@monroe.wednet.edu or at 360-804-3400.

Sincerely,

Jeff Presley
Principal


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.
