My name is Amy Parkinson and I'm the new media tech (librarian) here at Fall River. I'm super excited to be here and am learning so much already! I have 4 kids that are growing up way too fast, but they all attended Fall River...I love this school!
We just started checking out books, and I love that the students are so excited about it!
Gifted and Talented students achieve above grade level in their strength area. They display characteristics of unique creativity and high motivation in their strength area. In order to provide those students with the opportunity for additional academic challenges to support their continued education growth, teachers and parents can nominate gifted students for assessment.
At schools across America, teachers see two types of first–year students: one quickly adjusts to school and begins to enjoy it, the other cries each day at the door. By applying some easy–to–follow Love and Logic® guidelines, parents can help their youngsters belong to a very lucky group– students who start school with fun instead of fear.
Arrange a tour of your child's school before the year starts.
In order to increase moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) outside of the school day, Fall River will be offering our 100 Mile Club again this year. As 100 Mile Club participants, students can track the miles they walk or run during 100 Mile Club designated time at school, during special recess days, and at 100 Mile Club sanctioned community events. This allows ALL students to participate and is a great way to combine all of their activity towards a common goal—walking or running 100 miles during the school year.
