Hello Voyager Families!

Today would have been our March SPIRIT DAY and we feel it is important to keep our spirits up! We originally had a car parade scheduled for today, but with recent restrictions were not able to proceed. So here is our plan B!

First, by default we all meet our attendance goal! YAY! Your reward is extra recess. Get out and PLAY today…you’ve all earned it for putting in the work this week. We are proud of you, say we are proud of you. UHH!

Next, our teachers got together (virtually) to send you a little message. Turn up the volume and share this video with your kids. FPE Video for Kiddos

Another fun way to wrap up your days and welcome teachers into your home will be through our new Facebook Live Bedtime Stories. Starting next week, each night at 7pm, Monday-Friday, an FPE staff member will come onto the PTA Facebook page and read a bedtime story. Tune in and enjoy! Click here to view a flyer about it. If you have not joined the page, search for Falcon Pass Elementary Official PTA FB Group and answer the simple questions to be added.

Finally, let’s show some at home school spirit! Take time this weekend to create a FPE spirit poster or sign to hang in your window, place in your yard or decorate your sidewalk/driveway then take a walk around your complex or neighborhood next week and look for that VOYAGER PRIDE all around you!!

We will not let our circumstances dull our spirit! Come on Voyagers, we can do it!

Take care, LEAD on & Go Voyagers!

Good evening Voyagers,

I hope everyone is settling in and adjusting to this new normal. The staff at Falcon Pass has been busy preparing for the week and we are here to support you as we roll out the new online learning platform. Here is an overview of information you will need this week.


Tomorrow morning, go to www.ccisd.net and scroll down until you see the “at home” icon. Next have your child enter their username and password (the same one they use at school and also how you access Dreambox from home) to access the student portal. Once in the portal, click on the orange itsLearning icon. That will take you to our Falcon Pass campus homepage. Here you will find a video message from me, Mrs. Brock, Nurse Curtis and other campus resources including district created videos and supports for parents. When you are ready to access instruction, go back to the top and click on courses. There you will find the courses your child has access to. Click on each of those to go to the teacher’s page where you will find learning resources for this week. If your child is in our PPCD, SLL or AA programs, teachers will be emailing you personalized learning plans specific to your child and their IEPs.

We realize that technology is a barrier for many of you or you have multiple children who may be sharing one device. If online learning is not possible for you, paper packets by grade level will be available in front of the school, along with a variety of school supplies, for you to pick up starting Monday morning. Packets can also be used as additional resources to supplement the online course work. The online learning does take precedence but this is a viable second option if you need it. Please practice social distancing if you come up to the school for paper packets and have children remain in the car. Materials will be set out by the front doors each day this week between 9am-6pm.

Finally, this Friday is SPIRIT DAY! We are working to create a fun teacher car parade as a safe way to connect with our students and show our school spirit on Friday. A route map will be coming soon so be on the lookout for our parade to come to a street near you!

Take care and reach out if you need assistance this week. We miss you!

Go Voyagers!

Good afternoon Voyager Families,

As we begin adjusting to our new normal and all of its challenges, I want to start with how much I miss seeing all of your children and hearing a building full of noise and busyness of learning. This week of adjustment in my home has been tough so I am guessing yours may have been too. My goal for this message is to give you an overview of what teachers and the district have been working on to support you at home.

We realize home schooling your kids is most likely one of several things you are juggling. To help with this, our plan is to email you once on Monday with everything you need for the week. Teachers have been asked to provide 4.5 hours of academic work (2 hours of language arts, 2 hours of math and .5 hours of science/social studies) plus .5 hours of PE/art/music activities to be completed over the course of the week. There will be no schedule provided as we realize everyone is working around other obligations and well…life. These core activities were chosen to support essential learning standards of the 4th 9 weeks for each grade level. The district is creating parent videos on how to access the materials on itsLearning and those will be coming to you soon. You can contact teachers with questions just as you normally would. They will be sharing their hours of availability to support you. Please keep in mind, like many of you, they are also juggling raising kids, working from home and/or taking care of elderly parents. We can all agree to practice grace and patience with each other.

Attached are a variety of resources available to support you and your family. You are also encouraged to contact myself, your teacher or Mrs. Brock, school counselor, for any additional supports you need. One action we are trying to get cleared is to make school supplies available in front of the school if you need materials to complete activities. I will notify you if/when this is cleared to begin.

Rotary Food Distribution

I finally want to encourage connection. Consider a FaceTime play date with a friend. Have your child send a video to their teacher. We want to stay connected as a community as best we can and support each other. We miss you!

Take care,
Monica Giuffre
Principal
