A Message from Sparkwheel’s Lewis Dunkeson

Hey Friends,

We hope this message finds you well as we gear up for the new semester! With fresh challenges and exciting support initiatives on the horizon, we continue to work together in identifying students who might benefit from an extra boost in the right direction.

As we navigate the sometimes unpredictable winter weather, let’s remain optimistic that the worst of it is behind us, and we can look forward to a month filled with focused and productive schoolwork.

In the spirit of student engagement, we’re thrilled to announce that Future Now Finance (FNF) for all the Freshman class is scheduled for February 28th. If you’re interested in having any of your non-Freshman classes participate, please reach out to us for further details.

Additionally, we’re excited to share that mentoring opportunities are underway through collaboration with the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce. The focus is on College and Career, providing valuable insights and guidance to our students as they explore their future paths.

Let’s make this semester one filled with achievement, growth, and memorable experiences for our students!

Be the Spark!!

PARENT-STUDENT

HANDBOOK!

From the 2023-24 FSHS Parent-Student Handbook…

Parents/guardians are asked to call the office whenever a student is absent (speak only with an adult). If parents make no contact with the office, the absence is considered unexcused (after 48 hours). Students with unexcused absences will not be allowed into class without an admission slip from the office. In addition, students with unexcused absences are subject to disciplinary action, as well as notification to the county attorney. Students who miss school may be asked to present documentation, i.e., doctor’s note, etc.
