Coffee & Conversation new at FJHS


The Fulton Junior High School and Fulton Community School have teamed up to reach a goal of increasing family support and engagement through the new Coffee & Conversation sessions.
 
FJHS Principal Chris Leece said because he is a new principal, he aims to find ways to talk with parents of junior high school families about what is going well in the school and what could be improved.
 
“Our goal is to provide an opportunity for parents to receive information and ask questions of key junior high staff throughout the year,” he said.
 
The first session on Oct. 11 will include FJHS highlights from Leece, an overview of the first five weeks of school and making sure parents have access to School Tool for important school information about their child, or children. Additional Coffee & Conversation sessions will take place Nov. 30, Feb. 2, April 3 and May 22. All sessions will take place from 7:15 to 7:35 a.m. in room 5 at FJHS.
 
All Coffee & Conversation sessions are open to parents and guardians of junior high school students.
 
The new venture is also another way for the Fulton City School District to help reach its mission: to enable students to develop the knowledge and skills needed for relevant, lifelong learning and to become responsible, respectful and productive citizens with the help of their parents.
