Fredericktown Elementary Donates to Hurricane Victims

Fredericktown Elementary students held a penny parade to support the victims of the Hurricanes in Florida and Texas.  The students donated $1,039.92 to the Houston Food Bank and Feeding Florida.  The grade level that donated the most received five extra Freddie Wing pulls for prizes, which was Kindergarten that donated $299.29.  Thank you for sending in spare change to help out those in need!

Attendance Quick Facts

It is important for every student to attend school every day. Missing too much school has long-term, negative effects on students, such as lower achievement and graduation rates. In December 2016, the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410 to encourage and support a preventative approach to excessive absences and truancy. Fredericktown Local Schools is implementing the changes required by House Bill 410, which is encompassed in detail in the Student/Parent Handbook. Click here to download the quick facts.

Crunch Out Obesity

Fredericktown 4th grade students participated in a physical activity and nutrition program (Sponsored by United Way, Knox County Health Dept. and the YMCA) during the months of October and November. All students received a free exercise ball and learned great tips about how to get fit and eat the correct portion size of the right foods. The program culminated with an essay contest.

Congratulations to Taylor Thorne, Callie Carpenter, Luke Overholt and Carter Mull as this year’s Crunch Out Obesity essay contest winners! The students were to explain how the Crunch Out Obesity program has improved their health through physical activity and better nutritional habits. This year’s Fredericktown overall winner was Carter Mull!
