Hi Fancher Families, We are gearing up to celebrate our Fancher Teachers & Staff during Teacher Appreciation - Week May 6th-10th. We are currently asking families and community members if they would like to help us thank our incredible educators by donating a $15-20 gift card to any restaurant or business (ex. Biggby, Jimmy Johns, Target, local eateries or businesses). Or families could donate via cash or check to Fancher Elementary PTO to the front office at Fancher by dropping off or sending in with their student by April 30th. Last year we were able to gift every staff member with a gift card during Teacher Appreciation Week. We appreciate all your support and help as we gear up to celebrate our staff. Thanks, Fancher Elementary PTO

Fancher Elementary's Student Council will be running an internal collection drive for United for Moms from May 1st to May 15th. What is United for Moms? In honor of Mother’s Day, United Way is hosting a community-wide collection drive during the month of May. We will be collecting personal care items, cleaning products, and baby items that will be given to local women in need. Together, we can extend the loving power of moms to every child and build a better future for all! All collected items would be distributed to designated agencies, including The Care Store, Community Compassion Network, Life Choices of Central Michigan, and RISE.

Today our students started taking their state assessments, M-STEP. They are working hard to "Finish Strong" - giving extra effort to make it through to the end, which is our Capturing Kids' Heart theme for the month of April. We made sure here at school we provided the best testing environment for them and reminded them how much we believe in them. Each student received a Perseverance Bracelet and a Stick With It Note, with positive affirmation sticker. Thank you to families for making sure your student had a good night sleep and thank you to those who have donated healthy snacks to classrooms. We appreciate you all!

That's a wrap on a fantastic Reading Month! Students and families enjoyed reading Dog Days during March for our One District One Book family/community engagement focus. We welcomed Career Guest Readers, many Mystery Guest Readers, and even a 3rd grade visit with author of Turtle of Michigan, Naomi Shihab Nye. We gave away about 250 prizes today to celebrate the end of reading month and to thank/recognize students who participated in our One District, One Book initiative. And throughout the month we have another 250 prizes away to students for classroom winners of the daily Reading Month trivia. Many students enjoyed reading a book today in their classroom all cozy in their pjs with a blanket. It was a great way to celebrate reading month as we head into spring break. Thank you families & students for your participation! Keep reading.
