Welcome back Furgeson Patriots! I hope you had a restful summer, and our Patriots are ready to learn.


I am excited to share wonderful news with you!


We are now offering a Dual Language Immersion program (Spanish)! Our DLI program is a 90/10 model that begins in TK/K and will continue to 6th grade. Students who participate in the DLI program will get an opportunity earn a Bilingual Service and Participation Award by the end of 6th grade.


Furgeson has gone AVID! This year we will focus on student organization, and school climate to encourage and prepare our students to become college and career ready.


I will be sharing more information about both programs through out the year.


Furgeson also received a Silver PBIS Implementation Award from the California PBIS Coalition. Our PBIS component focuses on providing a positive learning environment for all of our students.


As you can see, we have a busy year ahead of us and we are going to need all of your support. With your support, we will ensure our Patriots are college and career ready. I am sure we are going to have another successful year.


                                    Go Patriots and Learn!
