IMPORTANT BOOKKEEPING INFORMATION Image result for bookkeeping CLIPART

If you use ELS on an hourly basis your final ELS payment will be posted on Praxi on Monday, May 21.  Please pay that amount by Tuesday. You will need to pay hourly charges for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each day that you use it.

 

Awesome news!  You can now pay online and put lunch money on your child’s account online! I know it is the end of the school year, but for those of you paying for next year on the 12- month plan you might want to use this feature and it will be ready for you in the fall if you are on the 9 -month plan.  You can also pay for SOS online.  You just need to log on to your Praxi account and you will see a box to the right where you can pay.  There is a 50 cent charge for using ACH (basically writing a check) or a 3% fee for using your debit or credit card.  You will receive a receipt via the email you have provided the school once you complete the transaction.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  We are glad we can finally bring this option to you!

As you begin to view our new uniform on the Lands’ End website (www.landsend.com), please also refer to our FBA Handbook Dress Code on the homepage of our school website (www.fbauc.com) for clarification.

It is our desire to have a unified school uniform going forward; therefore, K5-12th grade will all have the opportunity to wear the same color scheme as each other with some minor differences on chapel wear and footwear.  Again, Parker Uniform items may also be worn for the 2018-2019 school year. 

 

As a reminder, to assist you with transitioning to online ordering, we will be having a few opportunities to try on sample uniforms at FBA in the Peace Auditorium:  

Tuesday, June 5. 2018 - 10am-2pm For last names beginning with A-L
