On Thursday, February 8th, for the eighth year in a row, the Fort LeBoeuf Foundation awarded grants to teachers and staff members to enhance the educational opportunities of our students.  This year’s grants added up to $9222, making the total the Foundation has given over $50,000.  At Waterford Elementary Ms. Ali Coletta received ten 3-D printer pens so students can create pieces related to the stories they read. Mrs. Stacy Bukoski was awarded two grants, a document camera for her second grade classroom and one for middle and high school students for materials for a robotics team.  Ms. Hannah Kulic requested Nooks for fourth and fifth graders; the struggling students can work without other students knowing what level books they are reading.  Mrs. Cindy Zylak and Ms. Bernadette Walters received funds to help put on the Waterford Elementary School play, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  At Robison Elementary Mrs. Casey Jack was given money to purchase yoga mats for a program to help students learn to alleviate stress and anxiety during testing.  Robison’s principal, Mrs. Jennifer Hopkins has a program called Be a Bison Everywhere which will help students with conflict resolution, improved attendance, and creating an overall safer and more positive school atmosphere. The elementary school librarian, Mrs. Marian Gregg, is starting a makerspace at Robison where students will be able to experiment, create, and find solutions to problems.  Middle school teacher Mrs. Erin Strimel needed bins for a vocational program for autistic students to practice skills to help them both inside and outside of the classroom.  At the high school Mrs. Marcie Campbell was given funds to purchase a video camera for student presentations and multimedia projects in English classes.  The Foundation also once again gave Mrs. Debbie Humphreys money to help sponsor Business Week which happens each year at the high school.  For any questions about the Foundation grants, please contact Dennis Fortin at flbfoundation@gmail.com

On Sunday, December 3rd, the Fort LeBoeuf Leo Club helped Santa greet children and listen to their Christmas lists.  Every year the Waterford Lions Club sponsor this event, so children get to talk to Santa and pose for a photo with him.  The Leos are Santa’s temporary elves for the day, passing out his gifts of candy.  The Lioness Club serves cider, hot cocoa, cookies, and donuts.  They also had hats and gloves for any children who might need them.

Foundation Friend of Education Award

posted Nov 10, 2017, 10:33 AM by Angela Tarr   [ updated Nov 10, 2017, 10:40 AM ]

On Thursday, November 9th, at a reception in the high school library, the Fort LeBoeuf Foundation introduced its first group of nominees for the annual Friend of Education Award.  “We believe that our students are not only fortunate to be taught by great teachers but to live in a community that provides incredible support in so many areas. Many of us know those people who go that extra mile and make a difference in the lives of students at Fort LeBoeuf, whether it be a teacher, an administrator, a cafeteria worker, a secretary, a custodian, an aide, a bus driver, a coach, a volunteer, a parent, or a community member.  We’d like to begin to recognize some of those individuals,” said Denny Fortin, Foundation President.   Heather Peters and Kristi Rathburn were the recipients from this group of worthy nominees.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

posted Oct 23, 2017, 7:20 AM by Heather Peters   [ updated Nov 9, 2017, 11:53 AM ]

During the 2017-18 academic school year, we will once again provide the opportunity to allow the faculty to better communicate with parents/guardians regarding their child’s academic progress. Due to increased demand for this option, we will now offer two designated Parent-Teacher Conference Days on Thursday, November 9th and/or Friday, November 10th. Teachers will be available from 7:20 AM to 2:50 PM.

You are invited to schedule a conference(s) with your child’s teacher(s) to discuss his or her academic progress. All conferences must be scheduled in advance and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The length of each conference will vary dependent upon the academic subject and the needs of the parent/guardian.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to communicate with your child’s teacher(s). If you are not able to schedule a conference(s) on Thursday, November 9th or Friday, November 10th, as always, you may request a meeting at a more mutually convenient time.

We hope our Parent –Teacher Conference Days will continue to build upon the positive relationships we have already established with you and your son or daughter, and look forward to working with you throughout the school year.
