Everyone is invited!
All programs take place in the PAC at Fostoria Junior/Senior HS
3:00 pm Sunday, December 17 HS Band Holiday Concert
7:00 pm Tuesday, December 19 HS Choir Holiday Concert
As the new season is upon us, many know that construction is going on at the schools and parking has been forced to change. Event entry doors will be on the east and west sides of the JSHS closest to the gym. Fans should park on the west side of the JSHS and the north lot of the Intermediate Elementary School. If those are full, please feel free to park in the JSHS south lot and use the sidewalks to reach the event doors. GO REDMEN!!
School Delays, Closings and Announcements
Fostoria City Schools utilizes the School Announcement messaging system for communications with district families for emergencies, school delays/closings, announcements and other information. If you miss the call, please follow the link included in the message left on your phone or go to the FCS district website (www.fostoriaschools.org) and/or FCS Facebook page for the message information that was in the School Announcement call. Please note: Your caller ID will show the call/message coming from 419-436-6402, this is an unattended dedicated line assigned to the School Announcement program and is NOT a call back number. If you call back to the 419-436-6402 phone number, you will NOT get an answer or hear the message.
School delays/closings are also available on the Review Times website, WTOL 11, WFIN, WTVG 13, WNWO 24 and the WFOB radio station.
If you are not receiving the messages, have changed your telephone number recently or would like to add an email address to the School Announcement program, please update your contact information in the office of your child’s school. You can also call, 419-436-4170 with questions and/or updates.
New Digital Resource Launched for Preschool Learning
Ohio’s parents and educators have a new resource to help learners ages 3-5 prepare for school and their futures. The easy-to-navigate INFOhio Early Learning Portal contains more than 50 websites and apps chosen and evaluated by educators and librarians with expertise in early learning and literacy.
The INFOhio Early Learning Portal helps preschool children:
- Learn letters, numbers and basic knowledge;
- Interact with other children and adults;
- Engage in meaningful play; and
- Develop focus and problem-solving skills.
Each resource supports Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards for school readiness. Parents and educators also will find tips on integrating appropriate technology into preschool children’s learning. Adults can join children in using the digital resources when they play games, watch videos, or read and listen to e-books.
The INFOhio Early Learning Portal is a partnership of INFOhio, the Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and the Office of Gov. John Kasich. Nearly all resources in the portal are free, with a few available for a minimal fee.
