First Day of School

Fenton's first day of school on Wednesday, August 16 will be a tad unusual. Freshmen will start the day at 8 a.m. by themselves, following a shortened schedule to visit all of their classes in a more introductory manner.

Sophomore, juniors, and seniors will arrive later and join the freshmen and all students will then follow a 10 a.m. Late Start schedule.

Transportation will be provided to eligible students. Watch your mailboxes for a bus schedule.

Students can review their class schedule and bus route number by logging into PowerSchool.



Spirit Week

Fenton's Welcome Back Spirit Week is August 21st through 25th. This is an opportunity for our school to have fun, make new friends, dress-up and be silly, and to show their Bison pride. We encourage our students and staff to start planning ahead and join in this fun activity.
