What’s New For 2019-2020
WARM WELCOME FROM HEAD OF SCHOOL - MRS. Vanessa Coles
Welcome back to another exciting school year at Fortune Academy. We look forward to hearing the wonderful sounds of students and teachers being in the building together again. Our students are at the center of what we do and why we do it. Our teachers breathe life into the heart and soul of our mission to serve these students with intention in order to reach their academic potential. They help them develop the perseverance, grit, and resilience they need to be successful in the classroom by equipping them with tools they will use for a lifetime. Please don't miss our Parent Orientation night on August 6th at 6:30pm. We will be sharing pertinent information about the upcoming school year.
Mark your calendars for the Welcome Back Picnic on Friday, August 9th from 5 - 7pm. This truly is a family event. New parents and students will immediately feel a part of the warm and welcoming environment of our school community. Dinner and entertainment for the kids will be provided.
One Field Trip Form to Rule Them All
In an effort to simplify and reduce the number of forms we are sending home to complete, we now ask that parents sign ONE field trip authorization for all trips throughout the year. Parents will still be notified of class field trip information as each trip nears, you just won’t have to fill out an entire form every time. When field trip information is shared you have the option as a parent to “opt out” of a particular field trip by notifying the child’s teacher via email. If you decide a particular field trip is not right for your student, we ask that you make that request no later than 48 hours prior to the trip. This allows our teachers to make alternate educational plans for your students during that time. Otherwise, you can rest easy knowing that there isn’t another field trip form to fill out…All. Year. Long.
