Picture Day for Grammar School (K-6)
Students in Kindergarten through 6th grade will have their school year pictures taken on the morning of Wednesday, September 21st. Please be sure your student is in the proper formal attire. Order forms will be sent home with your child on that day.

Literacy Night for Parents

Please join us for a presentation about our school's literacy program. Lyndsey Rariden, a Kindergarten teacher and the Regional Literacy Lead for ResponsiveEd, will discuss the beauty, the joy, and the efficacy of our Literacy program. This event is for parents only, but not just for parents of Kindergarten students! All parents who desire to know more about the components of a Liberal Arts Education, our grammar school orthography program, and what it means to be a classical student, will enjoy participating in this informative and interactive presentation.

Meetings with the Headmaster

If you would like to meet with Ms. Loy, please email Ms. Lunetta at [email protected].

 

Meet our New Nurse, Mrs. Jackie Fanning

We are excited to announce that Nurse Fanning joined our team last week! Please read her message below.

 

"My name is Jackie Fanning and I am very excited to be the new nurse at Founders! My experience with nursing started in 2006 in the operating room, and I quickly moved on to other areas such as ER, GI, and vascular access. I took time off of nursing to be with my three wonderful children, who all attend Founders. I am honored to be the school's new nurse, and intend to do my very best."

2022-2023 Spirit Wear
We're happy to announce that the 2022-23 Founders Spirit T-shirt is now on sale! These shirts are approved for students and families to wear on official spirit days (approximately once/month), for PE wear, and to wear with pride at sporting events and in the community. You can find the shirts available for purchase at our online store https://archerscouncil.square.site along with car decals, hats, and a few discounted shirts from last year. You can also take this opportunity to purchase your annual membership in the Archers Council (similar to the local ISD's PTA) through the same site. Questions?

Volunteer Opportunities to Join our Event Committees!

Working together is a great way to show our kids and our school that we support them! The Archers Council is putting together committees for the upcoming school year. So that you can best juggle your time and plan for the upcoming year, YOU choose which event is best for you to volunteer.

Click here to sign up to indicate your interest in being on the Planning Committee for these council events. Being on a committee is a great way to get involved and share your talents with our school community. We look forward to working together with you!

Volunteer Application

Each school year, ResponsiveEd requires that every volunteer undergo a background check and sign a confidentiality agreement before being allowed to work on a campus. Applications remain active for each current school year, but a volunteer must reapply each new year. Please allow up to 3 weeks for processing of your application.

Our home meet is about a month out. This is such a fun day for our runners and school! To make this day successful we are asking for volunteers.

This is a great way for other FCA students to knock out all their volunteer hours for NHS (and cheer on friends) and for families to earn their Archer Hours. We will have Starbucks coffee and breakfast tacos, along with an awesome yellow safety vest for all volunteers :)

2022-2023 Socioeconomic Form

Responsive Education Solutions is required to collect and report the socioeconomic status of each student to the Texas Education Agency (TEA)for purposes of the annual state accountability ratings and for federal reporting. Please note that this form and the income levels indicated for your family are not reported to TEA. Only the Economic Disadvantaged status of each student as determined by the information provided is reported to TEA. It is important that families complete the socioeconomic form in order for schools to receive Title I and State Compensatory Education funding, which may directly benefit your child's school. Title I and State Compensatory Education funding can be used to hire personnel, provide tutoring services, order technology, and provide professional development for teachers. We want to continue to provide these necessary learning supports, but without your assistance, we may not be able to. To complete the form, please login to Skyward and go to the Online Forms section. There you will find the Socioeconomic Form that you can fill out online. Thank you for your assistance.
