April 1, 2014

     I can’t believe that it’s already April! The students have been working incredibly hard and I’m impressed by the amount of effort they have put in to their academics, athletics, and club/service activities. This week is very busy, as the Battle of the Ages and Auction for Education take place this weekend. I invite you and your family to join us at Fortuna High School, April 4, 2014 at 6pm, to cheer on the students and staff participants in the Battle of the Ages. Toddy Thomas and Fortuna Middle School students are also invited to attend the dance after this event, put on by our 8th Grade Parent Committee. For $8 at the door, students can get into both activities. Please make sure you pick up your child or arrange for transportation home for your child after these events if you are not planning to attend. In addition, there are only 8 tickets left for the Auction for Education Dinner, so make sure you contact the Toddy office if you would like one. (Please note that you can join us for the auction and not have dinner if you choose-adults only event).

     Posted on our website is a link for parents/guardians to take the LCAP survey. The survey asks questions about programs at our school and is designed to get input on how you feel our school is doing, as well as what you’d like to see improved. Please take the opportunity to have your voice heard and take this survey that is related to the new funding formula.

     We are patiently waiting for the results from the Garrett Morgan Symposium Competition in which some of our 7th and 8th grade students competed. This is a national competition where students create Sustainable Transportation options and then market those options against other student’s ideas across the nation. A huge thank you to Eureka CalTrans and Crystal Fennell for all of their efforts in this project.

     Toddy Thomas Student Council has two major service projects planned for our school in the upcoming weeks. Attached to this notice is a letter detailing these two projects and important dates. The proceeds from the student council bake sale on April 11 will be donated to Relay for Life, in addition to the other events mentioned.

     Career Day will be held on April 18 from 1:30-3:00pm on our campus and we are still looking for parent/community volunteers. Please contact Fiona Weismehl our school counselor at 725-5197 if you are interested in helping.
