Scholastic Book Fair - Spring 2021
Tuesday, May 18 - Speech Pathologist Day
Katie Pepper

Tuesday, May 18th is Speech Pathologist Day! Help us celebrate the incredible Katie Pepper and all she does to help our FCA students succeed!
We are welcoming in a limited number of parent volunteers for the K-6th grade field day on Friday, May 21st. Below is the sign up genius. 

We are looking for some parent volunteers willing to help out with a cohort during field day. You will stay with the cohort you volunteer for, moving from station to station. You may sign up for the full day or an hour block, please no mixing and signing up for multiple cohorts (classes.) Parents ARE required to check-in with the office prior to time slot, have no current symptoms of COVID-19 and must wear a mask at all times while on school property per school rules. No siblings or younger children will be allowed to attend with the volunteer at this time. The school asks that once your time slot is done to please leave campus, we are unable to stick around and watch our kiddos continue through their stations. 

We are also looking for a few families to help build a ninja warrior themed course. There are 5 "steps" to the course, you can sign up to build 1 or all 5! Please have these ready and delivered to Coach Phillips by 5/19. Instructions for this can be found in the sign up genius below.

If you have questions about field day volunteering contact Coach Phillips at!/showSignUp/70a0e48a8aa23a4f58-field2

For many schools, not just Firestone Charter Academy, COVID-19 has created staffing issues. For various reasons staff may need help covering their classes (sick days, waiting on COVID-19 test results, quarantine, etc). For those of us who really want/need the kids to be learning in person there is a way some of us can step up and help fill this need: substitute teaching. Obviously not everyone is in a position to help, but some of us are.
It's time to start thinking about the 2021-2022 school year. You can submit you application this summer to become an authorized substitute teacher for the fall. You will need to submit fingerprints and an application for this authorization as well as be able to confirm completion of high school or its equivalent (there is an out of pocket fee for both fingerprinting and the application).
What better way to support our FCA staff through this pandemic than getting into the trenches alongside them and working together to pull our community through this.
