Dear Families, The 2017-2018 school year continues with our mission of teaching our students to be learners and leaders. We hope you are hearing the language of the 7 Habits at home. It is our goal that these Habits become an everyday part of your child’s life and that they realize the importance of applying them inside and outside of school. We would like to invite all of our families to a 7 Habits Family Breakfast on Friday, Nov. 2. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about the Habits, give you some great ideas about how to support the Habits at home and provide time to create some “make & take” projects. We hope to see you there!
It is hard to believe, but first quarter ends Oct. 11, and report cards will be distributed at Parent/Teacher conferences Oct. 24 and 25. If you haven’t made an appointment with your child’s teacher, please contact them or call the school office at 636-272-2704. We look forward to sharing your child's progress this year.

Fort Zumwalt School District has partnered with Healthy Schools to bring flu shots to our students who are signed up for it this fall. A vaccination program for 7th and 11th graders who sign up will take place in the spring. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine every season. This program allows parents to sign their child up to be vaccinated by Healthy Schools at school for a $0 copay. An opt-in was included with your online registration. If you missed it, use the button below to sign up.
