F. C. Joyce Expectations


We have three overall expectations at F. C. Joyce which are: be safe, be respectful, and be responsible.  We work hard everyday to help students use these skills to make our school a safe place for learning. We thank parents in advance for helping to reinforce these three ideals in your home so that they may carry over at school and assist with learning. The staff at F. C. Joyce look forward to creating a wonderful and positive school experience for all students. Maintaining high expectations for learning and for positive choices will help us all succeed!

Watch d.o.g.s.

F. C. Joyce has started the Watch D.O.G.S. program and we couldn't be happier with the number of those interested in participating! Thank you for making a difference and investing your time for the students of F. C Joyce!


Watch D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer at school helping out in various ways. They help in the cafeteria and eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow, play with students at recess, read and work with students on flash cards, and any other assigned activities where they actively engage students and serve as a positive role model.

Every month F.C. Joyce will be hosting an Attend-A-Dance Party where there will be music and prizes for students with perfect attendance for the month!  Students have perfect attendance when they are in class on time each morning and remain in class the entire school day. That means NO tardies, absences, or early dismissals FOR ANY REASON!  If something out of your control happens and you miss school, everyone will have a chance to start new each month to earn their way to the next Attend-A-Dance.


Fun at the Dance!
