Prepare to be dazzled by professional performances from local organizations in our stage show. Wrapping up the evening will be the grand finale, a spirited Fry Community Dance performance featuring students, parents, staff and even Mrs. Hillman!

Friendship Giving Project

Send in your unneeded crayons! The PTA community service committee has extended the deadline to collect crayons to allow more time for student participation. Late last week, the students viewed a slideshow presentation about the SCARCE organization and why we donate crayons. We will continue collecting through Wednesday, March 1st.


FRY SPIRITWEAR

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Fry spirit wear is doing a throw back to designs from 2014. We've had a lot of requests for these designs, so here is your chance to order! Order forms went home with your child last week. You can return the form to the office or (even easier) place your order online. The deadline for ordering is Sunday, March 5th. NO EXCEPTIONS!
