Our goal is to encourage the enjoyment of horses through a broad spectrum of equine experiences, accommodating everyone from the serious sportsperson to the beginner and even the merely curious, by promoting the many facets of the equestrian experience: competition, mastery, sportsmanship, exercise, socialization, relaxation, recreation, intellectual curiosity, and the sheer love of horses. We offer a well-maintained facility, designed for the safety, comfort and enjoyment of horses and people alike. Our grand opening is on Saturday, October 15th, from noon to 4:00, at 39 Warsaw Road in Frenchtown/Kingwood. We'll have food, live music, games and prizes. This is a free, family-friendly event, open to the general public. Please note that attendees must RSVP in advance to FrenchtownRidingClub@gmail.com.

    School Information
     
    Student Chromebook Forms: Students in grades 3-8th grade received Chromebook forms in their August calendar packets. They consisted of a Chromebook Student Pledge Form and Chromebook Protection Plan Form. They were due September 6th. Please return them to the main office as soon as possible in order for your students' teacher to keep track of the chromebooks in their classrooms. If you can not find the forms, please click the link below to print and return.
     
     
    Morning Parent Drop Off Procedures: Parents, here are a few reminders for those of you who drop your children off in the morning.  Please read and share with anyone else who may drop your children off, including grandparents and babysittersPlease pull all the way up to the second crosswalk.  Those dropping off at preschool should pull up past the second cross-walk. Remember to use turn signals when moving in and out of your lane. If you have to get out of the car for any reason, please park in the lot. Parents should not get out of the car in the drop-off lane. That often causes back-ups to route 519 (not including pre-school). Do not jump the line to get out when pulling away.  Wait for those in front of you to move unless directed by a staff member. Above all, remember to be attentive, slow and cautious. Young children do not always remember to look for cars. Please also stop at the crosswalks. Pedestrians have the right of way.

     

    Next Weeks Open House Schedules: Please see the schedules below for both the Elementary School and Middle School Open House nights for next week.
     
     
     
    Road Work on 519: Road work on 519 will continue tomorrow and next week. The road work will be happening right outside our building and entrances. This will create delays in busing and most likely make the drop off procedure longer.
