Fry Elementary Weekly Announcements 8-5-19

Hello Parents!
Ready or not-It’s the first official Monday email of the 19-20 school year!
You will receive this email every Monday morning when school is in session. Just a few minutes of reading and you will be very informed and up to date! We do our very best to only send one email per week, as well as forwarding one PTA announcement email per week. For reference, these announcements are archived on the Fry Website.
Please note the “Important Dates” section below the announcements. We try to list events a month in advance. When available, we will also list the outside organizations who are offering programs at Fry.

Staff Updates
