Based on current enrollment trends, a third kindergarten classroom will be added for the 2019-2020 academic year. The addition will allow FPD to maintain our characteristic small kindergarten sizes so students have more one-on-one time with the teacher and smaller learning groups. Small classroom sizes are known to improve math and reading comprehension, the development of writing and fine motor skills, and provide a stronger foundation for later learning.
“We encourage our FPD families to invite their kindergarten friends to join us at FPD next year,” said Wade Putnal, Elementary Principal. “We now have additional spaces available in this grade, but these are limited, so now is the time to apply. This is going to be such a wonderful addition to our elementary program. We cannot wait to welcome all of our new Vikings next year!
