Be an ESL Mentor


BE an ESL Mentor!

Did you know that there are more than 120 students at FWE who speak English as a second language? This can make it challenging to keep up in the classroom and even make friends on the playground.

We are starting a new program to link some of these children with their own adult mentor for weekly language sessions. It will be a fun reading and writing program and allows these students to improve their communication skills at their own pace.

We would love some parents to make a commitment to this program for the rest of the school year. Sessions will be in the library every Thursday morning at 8:00 am to 9:00 am and there are no special skills needed – if you have ever read a picture book or played “Snap” or “ Guess Who?”,  then you are the perfect person we need!

There will be an initial briefing session on January 15th and the program will begin with students on January 22nd.

Signup online

If you need to know any more about how the program works,  please email

Frostwood Brick Campaign


  “Leave your Family’s Name on Frostwood Elementary”

There are not many things that you buy that last your entire lifetime!  When you buy a commemorative brick, your kids and their kids will be able to come back and see your family’s name engraved at Frostwood Elementary.  Your name will be etched into the campus showing your support for generations to come.

This might be the perfect “tax deductible” Christmas gift from you or maybe even grandparents!

Salad Bar is Back

Healthy Lifestyles Update

salad-barWe are excited to announce that the salad bar will be making a permanent appearance in the cafeteria very soon! So, mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 15!

We have made some changes since last Spring’s trial period, so the following is a short Q&A:

Q.  When will the salad bar be offered in the cafeteria?

A. The salad bar will be offered to ALL GRADES on Wednesdays and Fridays. The first official day of the salad bar will be Wednesday, October 15!

 Q. What is now offered with the salad bar?

A. There will be two sizes available: large for $4.00 and small for $2.50.  The base salad is only lettuce, and then after the child pays, he or she can choose from a wide range of fruits and vegetables as well as a choice of protein including chopped chicken, ham, turkey or cheese.

 Q. What kind of salad dressings will be served?

A. We will be offering a healthy selection of dressings including olive oil, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinaigrette and ranch.

 Q. Will there be anything else offered to round out the salad bar offering?

A. Yes! The child can supplement the salad with a bag of pretzels or comparable grain snack.

 Q. Are the salads pre-packaged or will my child have a choice as what to put on it?

A. The base salad just starts with lettuce – nothing more. Then after paying, the child can choose which toppings he or she would like to put on top. If your child does not care for a particular item or has dietary issues, he or she does not have to take that topping.

 Q. Can my child still enjoy a salad if he/she brought a lunch from home?

A. Yes, there will be a special exception made if a child wishes to replace or supplement their lunch from home with a salad in the cafeteria!

 Q. How is having a salad bar possible at Frostwood?

A. Through the amazing support of the District, Child Nutrition Services (CNS), Frostwood leadership and cafeteria staff, we are excited to bring this healthy option to Frostwood. In addition, the service associated with the salad bar is based on 100% volunteer support of Frostwood parents. Several men and women have gone through a necessary training and have dedicated themselves to this process to prep, serve and manage the salad bar each week. Thanks volunteers!!

Please contact Heather Burkhart (hpburkhart@hotmail.com) or Shelley Jones (c_sjones@yahoo.com) with any questions or if you would like to be trained as a volunteer for this very important initiative!
