Spring Carnival is May 5!

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

Spring is here, which means our Foulks Ranch Spring Carnival is around the corner. This year’s carnival is on Friday, May 5th from 4:30-7:30. A huge part of making our carnival a success is the basket raffle.

 Your child’s class is gathering items to create a “Shop Elk Grove” themed raffle basket. Please send in donations by Friday April 28th. We are asking that you please help make this year’s raffle successful by having your child bring in a new item, a cash donation, or a gift card to contribute to our class’s themed basket. Please be creative and have fun!

Proceeds from the raffle and carnival will go to the Foulks Ranch PTO which provides funding for a variety of programs and materials at our school such as new P.E. equipment, Chromebooks , the Accelerated Reader program, the Art Docent program, and the library.

Carnival and raffle tickets will be on sale shortly. We look forward to seeing you at the carnival!

Thank you so much for your support,

6th Grade Teachers and The FR Carnival Committee

Organic Farmer’s Market at School This Friday!

Hello Parents!


As you know, our school is hosting an ORGANIC FARMERS MARKET next Friday, March 3, during pick-up time.  It’s a fun way to introduce our students to different kinds of fruits and veggies, ways to eat healthier, and help support local farms.

If you are unavailable to shop on Friday, attached (also sent home with your student) is a PICK-UP order form you may return to school TOMORROW, 2/24 and our PTO will send home the goodies with your child on 3/3.  No need to come back for pick-up, it’s real easy and convenient!  🙂


This healthy fundraiser is made possible with the help of our super-awesome school secretary, Ms Tara. It’s Organic! is  donating 100% of the proceeds back to our school.  


Hope you find the time to stop-by and check-out the market /or pre-order and help our students earn the much-needed extra funds for our school.  Thanks in advance!

Just a reminder that Open House is Thursday, February 23 from 6:00-7:00.
