We are proud to announce that we are adding an additional 5th Grade Teacher as of Monday, September 19th. Mrs. De Leon comes to us from Nuffer Elementary where she was a fifth grade teacher. Let's give her a Foster Star welcome upon her arrival.
As a result of our added staff member, we will now have two 4th Grade classrooms and two 5th Grade classrooms. Class sizes will be reduced in all four classes. Thank you parents for your patience and understanding as we transition into our new classrooms next week.
There is an app out there known as Ogle that everyone needs to be aware of. Essentially, Ogle is an app that allows anyone to “anonymously” post anything that they want about any school they choose – including ours. Schools across the nation are reporting inappropriate posts on Ogle that vary between cyber bullying of other students, nudity and drug use photos being published and shaming of classmates, administrators and staff. There are other apps out there like this; however, Ogle seems to be the most popular right now.
We are asking for parents to take steps to ensure that their students do not have the Ogle app on their phone, and that they do not access it. We are also asking parents to have discussions with their students about using the internet and social media websites appropriately.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
