    This message cover our shortened Thanksgiving week and the week after. Look for our next message on Friday, December 3.

    I am sure that you will join me in thanking Ms. Folsom for bringing Mr. Bryan Collier to school yesterday! As we create memories for our students, we serve them well as we showcase personal stories and narratives that encourage positive thinking, personal growth and responsibility. Mr. Collier demonstrated through his works and through his interactions that he values students and their education. We are better as a school and as a community as we can reflect on his messages and use his experiences as examples for our students and their families.

    Due to the shortened Thanksgiving week, there will be no Books for Breakfast program next week. Mrs. Urban and Ms. Scott will resume the program on Monday, November 29.

    Thanks for connecting with teachers during our conference night this week. Continue to connect through the family portal and through Class Dojo as you maintain open the lines of communication.

    As you know, our Thanksgiving holiday is coming soon: we will have an early dismissal on Tuesday, and school will be closed on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. Look for children to be dismissed three hours early on Tuesday, November 23, as we will begin our dismissal procedures at 12:45 p.m. Students will be dismissed with a “grab - n - go” lunch to take home; we recognize that some may not have an opportunity to eat lunch until much later. So, you may send a snack with your child on Tuesday morning as he or she comes to school. During our late-morning, teachers will provide students with a mask/snack break to assuage their hunger until they can get home and eat their lunches.

    Students will return to instruction after the Thanksgiving holiday break on Monday, November 29, 2021, at the usual time.

    And, we remind you to prepare for an early dismissal on Wednesday, December 8, again, three hours early.

    As we approach the winter holidays, we will continue to reach out to families with our support and encouragement. We have planned a few activities associated with our PBIS recognitions and classroom celebrations, but we still will not permit students to bring in food treats. We plan on a movie treat as we approach the holiday; we will notify you as we get closer to the date.

    Students' last day of instruction before the winter holidays break is Friday, December 17, 2021. Schools will be closed through the holiday period, but administrators will be working remotely on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, December 20, 21 & 22. Calls will be forwarded to the appropriate administrator. Or, you may connect with our central office partners at 410.677.4400, if you need additional support.

    Students will return to instruction after the Winter Holidays break on Monday, January 3, 2022, at the usual time.

    Thank you for your attention to this message.

  • Canned Food Drive 

    Fruitland Intermediate School, under the leadership of the SGA, will be participating in an annual Harvest for the Hungry “Kids Helping Kids Food Drive” campaign.  This program provides an opportunity for children to collect food for the less fortunate and volunteer their time.    We will begin collecting food on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, and will continue until December 9, 2021. One-third of those served by emergency food programs in Maryland are children under 18.  Through Kids Helping Kids, students learn about one of the most solvable social issues of our time – hunger and take-action, which allows them to feel that they are making a real difference.  Kids Helping Kids is a wonderful way to build school spirit. 


    MEAT & PROTEIN- Canned meat (chicken, tuna, etc.), peanut butter, nuts & seeds, dried beans  

    FRUITS, JUICES & VEGETABLES- Canned fruits & juices, vegetables, soups & stews (low sodium), juice boxes

    BREAD & CEREALS- Oatmeal, breakfast cereal, rice, rice cakes, pasta, granola, cereal bars
