A great end to a great week with our January Recognition Assembly! 💚🦊


Spring PIcture Day is next Monday!

The original date set at the beginning of the year was Tuesday, February 7th, but we have confirmed with the picture studio that it has been changed to Monday, February 6th. We are sorry for the confusion! We look forward to seeing all of their picture-ready smiles on Monday!

Congratulations to our two 5th grade Spelling Bee winners, Arjun Mukkamala and Isaiah Wilson! They will represent Farley at the county spelling bee! We are so proud of all our participants!


Friendly Reminder: Wednesday is an Early Release Day! We will begin dismissing car riders at 2:55.


Farley Elementary PTO

Have you wanted to come to a PTO Round Table meeting but not sure what it’s all about? We’d love to tell you and hope you will consider joining us at our next meeting!

Here’s a little bit of info about our PTO Round Table meetings:

🦊Parents and guardians are all invited to come be a part of our Round Table meetings. This is a great time to learn a little more about what’s going on at Farley.

🦊During a typical meeting, you’ll hear from our principal, a teacher from each grade level and some special’s teachers about what’s happening in the classrooms and around the school.

🦊We look over our PTO budget, our expenses and income and how we are supporting our Farley staff and students.

🦊We discuss activities that are going on around school and how Farley families can help. Examples include…our upcoming Spring Fundraiser, Teacher Appreciation, 6th Grade Promotion. Those are just a few of the things PTO organizes and we are always looking for help to make these activities a success.

🦊And we always leave time for discussion…we want to hear from you and answer any questions you may have. We would love it if you’d join us to help make Farley the best it can be.

💚💚💚Our next Round Table Meeting is February 27th at 6:00pm in the Farley library. Childcare will be provided. We will be discussing PTO Executive Board member elections for next school year and what’s coming up this Spring. We hope to see you there! 💚💚💚

Lots of information in the January Fox Flier!

Farley Library - 2nd Quarter Report

Thank you for supporting the book fair! A large number of books were added to the library from the book fair. We wouldn't be able to do this without your support.

January Library Opportunities

January Book Challenge (all grades) - The library is offering a January book challenge. Students that read 12 books will earn a smelly fruit pencil from the library. After you finish a book, record the title and author on the back. Have a parent sign it, then return it to Mrs. Kufahl in the library. This challenge is optional. The paper is due at the end of January.
Here is a link to print the paper:

Battle of the Books (grades 3-6) -
Students work together in teams of four to six students to read all the books on the William Allen White book list. The books must be read by May, the exact date is yet to be determined. During the competition, students are asked questions about the books and receive points for answering the correct title and author’s last name. They may confer with their team before answering, so it is important that someone on the team has read the book.
Students who wish to participate must have this permission form signed by both their classroom teacher and a parent/guardian. The student must agree to read the books assigned by May. It would really let their team down to start the program and not finish it. Once students have turned in their permission form, Mrs. Kufahl will form teams. Teams will then meet and students will decide what books each person is responsible for. Books are available to check out through our library, TSCPL, or you may purchase them on your own (if you wish). Many of the books are also available through TSCPL in audio format through Hoopla and Libby. This may be a good choice, because a lot of these books may be difficult for 3rd and 4th grade students. You can also choose to read the books as a family. Mrs. Kufahl will meet with the teams to check their progress and be sure everyone understands the rules and procedures of the competition. Mrs. Kufahl and the teams will meet once a month during lunch to check their progress and be sure everyone understands the rules and procedures of the competition. Attending the lunch meeting is required to participate. The competition will occur in May. Forms are due to Mrs. Kufahl on January 6th. Students may sign up late if there is room for them to join a current team. Students either learned about this the week before break, or are learning about it this week in library class.
