Celebrating our Amazing School Nurses!
Shout out to all of our school nurses who go above and beyond for our students, families, and staff, every day. While navigating the always changing Covid guidelines and recommendations they care for boo boos, broken bones, food allergies, and more, with a constant smile and empathetic word. Thank you!

Mill Hill Shares Their Dreams
Dear FPS Community,
This past month has flown by, yet as I look at the events shared in this month’s Spotlight, I am encouraged by the joy and celebrations evident throughout our district.
Since the dawn of civilization, we have commemorated special events and accomplishments. The number of rites, rituals and celebrations we participate in is almost endless and incredibly diverse. Every culture, nation and tradition has developed its own unique ways of honoring special occasions. These customs and traditions are a direct product of cultural background, history, and beliefs.
As eclectic as these practices are, if we look closely, we see a common thread that connects them. They all center on universal human experiences. They help us define our individual identities and contribute to the stories of who we are. Celebrations also cultivate a sense of community. Whenever we come together, we get a chance to connect with others on a deeper and more profound level. They provide us with the perfect opportunity to engage in the joys of life such as dancing, singing, sharing foods, playing and laughing together.
Whether we are celebrating the 100th Day of School, Black History Month, the Lunar New Year, School Nurses Day, or any of the other events and accomplishments featured here, we are teaching our students to value their place in our community.
I hope you enjoy these celebrations as much as we do.
