Dear Pates and Fort Families,
We had a great turn out for our FW Science Fair. Special thanks to our Mrs. Puentes and our fifth grade teachers for supporting our young scientists through this project. We also appreciate and want to thank the Clovis West AP Science students for coming over to the Fort to judge our science fair projects and providing constructive feedback to improve our projects. We look forward to sending our top ten projects to compete at the Clovis West Area Science Fair in February. Great work Pates!
We also would like to thank our guest presenter, Mrs. Breshna Zurmati, for her presentation at our MAC-N-KIDS/SART/IDAC meeting. We enjoyed learning about the Afghan culture!
Mark your calendars! Closing out the month of January will be a special presentation of Screenagers on Wednesday, January 29th at 5:30pm in the MPR. This event is geared for families with students in grades 4 through 6, therefore we strongly encourage our students in grade 4-6 attend with their parent. We value the importance of educating our community as we navigate this digital era, therefore we encourage our K-3 parents to attend to gain knowledge about Screenagers and how to approach future discussions with your children about screen time. The presentation will be led by Mrs. Nijskens, Mrs. Guffey, and Mr. Turpin from Maple Creek. Some have said Education is the Key to Success. Come join us to learn about Screenagers. See you there!
