Back to School Socials

We are getting ready for our Back to School Socials and look forward to seeing you soon! Please mark your calendars:

  • Grammar School (K-6th Grade): Wednesday, August 11
  • Upper School (7th-12th): Thursday, August 12

Both evenings will begin at 5:30 in the building 1 gym with a welcome from Mr. Sowers. This is a social event for our families. You will have a chance to meet your teachers and drop off your school supplies. Grab a slice of pizza or a yummy ice cream treat while getting reacquainted with old friends and meeting new ones.

The Class of 2022 will be selling pizza by the slice at both Back to School nights from 6:00-7:30 to raise funds to support senior events and graduation.  There will be cheese and pepperoni available for $2/slice. Drinks will also be sold for $1.

Want to save a bit and feed the whole family? Pre-order the Family Meal Deal!

1 Large pizza (pepperoni or cheese) & 4 drinks for only $15

All pre-orders must be placed by Friday, August 6th and will not be available the night of the event

Send payment via Venmo to @FCA-Seniorclass and include: family name, type of pizza, and please specify Grammar or Upper School. (4 digits needed to confirm Venmo is 2103.)

2021-22 Spirit Wear Order Form

We're happy to announce that the 2021-22 Founders Spirit T-shirt is now on sale! These shirts are approved for students and families for 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. Please take note:

  • All shirt orders placed online will be available for pick-up at Back to School Night. Shirts can also be purchased at B2SN, but we encourage online pre-orders to avoid long check-out lines.
  • These shirts are a soft triblend ("District" brand). Nervous about sizing? We are happy to exchange sizes at Back to School Night if needed after you see your pre-ordered shirts.
  • Founders staff and teachers: The Archers Support Committee hopes to provide a shirt for each of you, so please don't buy one for yourself.

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 email Mrs. Cunningham as soon as possible to set up a time and date to sign the Official Withdrawal forms. Early notification is requested so that we may ensure all necessary documents are put together for you at your desired time frame. For your convenience, please use the Student Withdrawal Checklist to ensure the process is complete.

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