Flu season is upon us. Please take a moment to read about symptoms and what you can do to help prevent the spread of the flu.
We would like to thank everyone for being patient and compliant as we put the new traffic pattern into place for this school year. We feel the pros of this new procedure greatly outweigh the cons. Traffic is clear on 181 and 775 and we are currently getting all cars in the line unloaded by 7:30 AM. We greatly appreciate everyone who is currently utilizing the back entrance off of CR 128 and staying in the designated car line.
However, we are concerned about some serious safety issues that are occurring as a result of the new traffic pattern. As such, we are making some minor changes.
Due to the increase in traffic on HWY 181 and FM 775, there are major changes to the car line pick-up and drop-off procedures at FNES for the 2015-2016 school year. Please review these procedures, along with the attached map, and contact FNES with any questions or concerns. The school phone number is (830) 393-5310.
At Floresville North Elementary, we have an open-door policy when it comes to best teaching practices. All of our teachers have strengths that create multiple and meaningful learning opportunities for our students. We use research-based strategies to make each lesson rigorous and relevant. Still, some lessons stand out as extraordinarily engaging for our students, whether it's through the use of cutting-edge technology, inventive classroom materials, or creative instructional methods. Please browse our Innovation at Work Video Gallery to peek inside the innovative classrooms at FNES.
Thank you to Texas State University for donating a t-shirt to each of the students in Mrs. Rethaber’s second grade class at FNE. Mrs. Rethaber alerted her alma mater of the college-going culture we promote at FISD, and they were eager to be a part of it. Students said the shirts are “awesome” and “cool to wear.” These little Tigers and Jaguars just may become Bobcats in time!
The Magic Tree House Book Club met September 30, 2015. We made dinoramas after reading the first half of Dinosaurs Before Dark. Students were excitedly engaged in their creation of a dinosaur scene based on Jack and Annie's adventures through prehistoric times. Our next meeting will be October 14, 2015 and we are going to be starting Knights Before Dawn and learning about knights and medieval times.
Students in Mrs. Hawn's and Mrs. Hineman's 1st Grade classes have been learning about Foundations of Numbers and representing them in various ways. Students practiced building numbers using pretzels and fruit loops. The pretzels represented the longs or tens and the fruit loops represented units or ones. At the end of the lesson students could eat their manipulatives if they built their number correctly and were able to justify their representation to a neighbor.
Staff and students celebrate Character Day at FNES!
Mrs. Coleman's 2nd Grade class has been studying verbs. The students had fun picking their favorite verbs to act out.
