Greetings Fortune School Families,

As Principal I’ve learned throughout my career,
the single most important factor to a child’s
education is the classroom teacher. I encourage
parents to TEAM (together everyone achieves
more) up with their child’s teacher to make
school great! The teacher will be a very
important person in your child’s life this year, so
it’s important for you to build a relationship with
them as soon as possible. That way, you can
work together to ensure your child’s success.
Make every possible effort to attend meetings no
matter how busy you may be. The more your
teacher understands about your child the better
they will be able to help them succeed. ALWAYS
let your child know you respect the teacher. Your
positive attitudes about school will motivate your
child’s good behavior in class. Remember our 3
Rules: Listen, Respect, and Work Hard and not
just school rules but life rules as well. For
additional success tips, please contact our Parent
Liaison Mrs. Johnson at (916) 287-4470.

I wish you a successful school year.

Odisa Nyong  We are looking for a few Parent
Volunteers to help Ms. J in the

opportunity will help fulfill your
required parent volunteer hours.
Opportunities are available as little as
once a week to daily. Please contact
Mrs. J ohnson to schedule your days

Carpools are needed in your neighborhood.
If you have a need for a ride or are willing to
give a ride to a student, please let Mrs.
J ohnson know as soon as possible. Your
carpool time will count toward your 40 hours
of required volunteer time. Another benefit is
that you can drive in the carpool lane. Please
help students get to school.

Our Gym is here! Our scholars now have a
big beautiful gym to practice yoga and to
have PE. Pictured above: Fortune’s 2

grade classes preparing for yoga, with Ms.
Goss. What a great way to start the new
school year!
