Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are excited to begin our first year together as Fostoria Elementary School.  Having all the students on one campus will provide us with more opportunities to collaborate PK-6 and involve students from the FJSHS as mentors for PK-6 students.

We are moving into our 5th year of Leader In Me and will be recognized as a Lighthouse School due to Longfellow being awarded Lighthouse status in March 2018.  By utilizing the 7 Habits our students will continue to build the social/emotional foundation to be lifelong leaders. This year we will continue to develop and refine PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support). We will support students with behavioral, social and emotional goals. The staff at Fostoria Elementary believes in showing their appreciation for positive behavior and demonstration of our school-wide expectations of being safe, responsible and respectful leaders.

Our entire team is eager and excited to begin what promises to be an incredible year.  The excitement has been building with the renovations and new spaces being developed throughout the building.  With the renovations and new spaces, teachers will foster learning environments that provide opportunities for students to create, collaborate, and communicate while promoting critical thinking. One of the greatest characteristics of the Fostoria learning community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Fostoria Elementary is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate members of a global society. We look forward to an amazing year! 


Reading is the Key

Everything we do in school and in our lives revolves around our ability to read.  This is why we need to start early with our children learning to read and continue to grow and challenge them to read longer, more difficult, and different types of material.  InfoOhio recently published some information, primarily focusing on students in pre-school through third grade and skills they should be working on and things you can do with your child at home. With the Third Grade Guarantee, it is important that we have students on track with their reading levels by the end of the third grade.  Much like learning to ride a bike, playing an instrument or participating in a sport, reading is a skill that needs repeated practice.  Research shows students who are at grade level in reading have a higher percentage chance of graduating on time from high school as well as performing better on other subjects standardized testing.  These newsletters can be found by going to https://www.infohio.org/students/parents/resources-for-the-third-grade-reading-guarantee.  I encourage everyone to take a moment to read these and see how we can make reading a part of many activities we do on a daily basis and show our children reading is fun and rewarding.
