to all of our wonderful FBA families.
We are sending out a newsletter to stay in touch while we are out of school.
Packets are available for pickup today
from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Bins are under the covered portico area by the sanctuary doors
near the school office.
If you are unable to get to the school today (or misplace a page), the kindergarten through 2nd grade packets have been loaded onto Praxi. Log on to Praxi and the pages are located under the Resource tab at the top.
If you're looking for something with current events, check out KidNuz.org. Each day has a news segment and a quiz. This is great for elementary students.
“FBA does not sponsor GoFundMe pages for any school fundraisers.”
