The Eight Grade graduation celebration is scheduled for Saturday July 11. Students, teachers, and family will float from Island Park to Morgan Bar, where a picnic with catered sack lunches will be provided to 8th graders and their guests. If you have a water craft and want to join in the fun, meet the Fernwaters team at the Island Park boat ramp Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
Fernwaters is upgrading its technology devices for Fall 2020 thanks to the CSP grant funds. New technology school wide includes Chromebooks for the 4th/5th classroom and iPads with keyboards for the 6-8 students.
Check out a bird’s eye view of the playground sans sidewalk and rock.
Welding classes are in full swing. Four Fernwaters students are taking the career exploration course. One Fernwaters graduate and one Salmon 8th grader are taking the second level course. In addition, two adults and two SHS students are taking an evening class. Fernwaters is delighted to offer these programs in partnership with the Youth Employment Program.
Friday Music classes are coming! Starting this Fall FernWaters will offer group violin and group piano class each Friday morning. Beginners welcome! Students will build a foundation of technique and musicianship that will open the door to solo and group performance. A modest fee is required; however, limited scholarships and
instruments (violins) will be provided based on student need. Learning a musical instrument is a fantastic way to develop coordination, cooperation, confidence, and self- expression.
COVID-19 Protocols will be available for your review after the July board meeting. While the school will take its own precautionary measures to keep everyone safe, we encourage parental involvement too. Here are some common sense proactive measures you may consider taking when school opens in September:
1-Acquire a personal supply of face masks.
2-Routinely take your child’s temperature at home. (A temp of 100.4° is considered a fever by Eastern Idaho District Health)
3-Send your child with a water bottle and cold lunches to minimize students touching common surfaces.
4-Help educate your child about the importance of hand washing and social distancing.
5-Keep your child home if he or she is showing symptoms of illness.
Supplies Lists are available online at fernwaters.org, and you will receive one mailed home along with a school calendar here in the next couple of weeks.
Take care and thanks for your continued support!
