Hello Fiddyment Farm FORCE Families!

Welcome to the 2019/2020 School Year – We at Fiddyment Farm hope you had an amazing summer vacation and are looking forward to a fun and awesome new school year!  For those returning families and those who will be new this year, our amazing teachers and support staff are looking forward to greeting you soon and are excited for a wonderful new school year!

Fiddyment Farm is indeed a special place for students and families.  Our school is committed to addressing the needs and skills of ALL of our students.  We pride ourselves on consistently working to improve student performance and teacher instruction, as well as instilling perseverance in our students to acquire the knowledge needed to face challenges and embrace enrichment, and in doing so, becoming a FORCE in our ever changing society.  Beyond the common core standards, our students participate in school programs including art, music, physical education, technology, and character building, working each day to grow into outstanding young scholars and leaders, ready for the next grade level, middle school, and beyond! Above all of this, we have the most talented and caring teachers and support staff in the district, to enrich the lives of all of our students!

With great partnerships from our community of families, Fiddyment Farm continues to be a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.  From our community of volunteers in the classroom for everyday support, art docents and room parents, to our phenomenal PTC board and members, they help foster a student experience at Fiddyment second to none.  Their support for our students during school, our after school enrichment programs, and our community events, make our school a truly amazing place to be!  

Please take the time to visit the PTC/Volunteer link on the website, and help to contribute to this tradition of community support.  I cannot encourage you enough to get involved in your child’s school and learning. “The Farm” has an awesome story to tell, and we want you to hear it and for you to be a part of it.  You can follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. We are also bringing back our “Remind.com” account that you can sign up for in order to receive text message reminders from us about important dates and events!

I also highly encourage you to check our school website - www.rcsdk8.org (click schools and go to Fiddyment) often for important links and school news regarding happenings and events here at the farm!  Our weekly school Blog will be updated and refreshed and linked to the website as well. You can also find information there regarding updated staff, bell schedules, school supply lists, volunteer info, and the school handbook.

I wish all of our wonderful Fiddyment Farm FORCE students and families, the best school year to come!  I know it will be amazing for everyone! I look forward to the learning, growing, and most importantly, to the fun we will all have together this coming school year!

Best Regards,

Ryan Poulsen, Principal
