Folsom Hills Elementary is proud to announce the online publication of our school newspaper: Folsom Fox News. Written by our 4th and 5th grade students, and advised by Mrs. Plummer, Folsom Fox News allows students participating to actively create a newspaper of traditional origin, honing their ELA and research skills, while also learning how to interview, photograph, and work with the newest technologies. Previous editions can be accessed by clicking the image to your left.
There has been much confusion regarding the implementation of the Peachjar e-flyer system. Please note that this is not replacing and/or changing any of the communication methods currently used by Folsom Hills; communication using email and Wednesday folders will remain in place. Peachjar is a district-wide implementation, and not specific to our site. While you are certainly welcome to utilize Peachjar, Folsom Hills will not be using it as a primary means of communication.
