Summer Checklist

Here is a list of items to check off your list this summer to be ready for the start of the new school year:

  • Verify Contact Information
  • Order your 2022-2023 School Supplies and FCA Planner
  • Summer Reading
  • Check the Uniform Guidelines
 

Verify Contact Information

To ensure we have the correct information for mailing home report cards and other information throughout the summer, please take a moment to verify your contact information in Jupiter. You will find this information under “Settings”. Please update your information as needed.

 

2022-2023 School Supplies

Please click on the links below to download your supply list for the 2022-2023 school year. Please note that in addition to your supply list, you must purchase the appropriate item for your PE class:

 

If you would prefer to purchase a supply kit from Teacher Tailored, please visit their website at www.shopttkits.com. The account # is 68440. All orders must be placed by June 19 and they do not include the PE supply item.

 

FCA Planner Order Form

In addition to school supplies, each student in 2nd-12th grade is required to purchase a weekly planner for recording assignments and communication between teacher and parent. Families are welcome to purchase planners of their choice, provided they have at least two pages per week during the school year and plenty of space for students to write. We recommend that all students purchase the Founders Classical Academy of Leander planners directly from the school. Please complete the FCA Planner Order Form

 

Summer Reading

Please click here to download the summer reading assignments. Summer reading is required for all students. Students in grades 3rd-12th should turn in their written assignments on the first day of school so that they can be graded. Discussions about summer reading will take place in the first few days of each new school year.

 

Who wants a FREE popsicle?

Log your reading and math facts minutes and then bring the June Summer Reading and Math Log to school on June 30. If you are up for a challenge, see if you can read more than Mrs. Lisacek!

 

Uniform Guidelines

Our uniform guidelines are outlined in our family handbook as well as on our website. Please note the following: 

  1. As a reminder, all indoor sweaters must be knitted and worn with a collared shirt underneath. Additionally, please note that sweatshirts and fleece sweaters are not knitted material.

  2. To ensure consistency, we have simplified the shoe policy so both staff and families have a clear understanding of our dress code. Shoes, classroom and PE, must be solid colored, closed-toed, closed-heeled tennis or dress shoes; shoes must have matching shoelaces and be solid white, black, or brown. The soles must also match the shoe color. Logos must be the same color as the shoe.
  3. Outdoor coats and jackets must be free of messages, large logos, other school logos, or images however they do not have to be a solid color.

Please visit the Uniforms page on our website for more information.

Additional Yearbooks

For the first time since the school opened, we sold out of yearbooks! We know that there were many disappointed families that did not receive a book so we have inquired about ordering additional books and it is possible!

Please note that the cost of these additional books will be $78/each and they will take 7-8 weeks to deliver which means we won’t have them until August.

 

Please click here to complete this survey if you are committed  to buying a yearbook at $80/each. We will use this information to place the printing order.

Teacher of the Year

Please help us congratulate our 2021-2022 Teachers of the Year! 

  • Mrs. Aimee Evans, Grammar School
  • Mr. Phil Solorzano, Upper School

Thank you teachers for all your hard work and dedication to our students!

Withdrawing a Student & Transcript Request

We are always sad to see families leave, but we also understand that life happens and plans change. If your child will not be returning to Founders next year, please complete this form as soon as possible. Early notification is requested so that we may ensure all necessary documents are put together within a reasonable time frame. Mrs. Cunningham will contact you to set up a time and date to sign the Official Withdrawal forms.

 

If your student requires a transcript, please complete the Transcript Request form and submit it to the front office. Please note that final transcripts will not be made available until mid June.

 

Archer Hours

We want to thank all of our amazing Archer Volunteers for their hard work and dedication this school year! We couldn’t have done it without your help. Thank you!
