Spring 2024

Community Quarterly Newsletter | CARSON CITY, NEVADA | Spring, 2024



Andrew FeulingAs the days grow longer and the world awakens with the vibrant colors of spring, it is a reminder that the only constant we have is change. We continue to have new experiences, new acquaintances, new hopes, new challenges and new opportunities. The underlying mission of our schools, is to make the most of every day for kids by empowering them with skills, knowledge and opportunities to thrive, but as our world changes we continue to adapt what that means so all of our kids are engaged and will have their best chance at success in that ever-evolving future. That is why I am excited to see the continued progress and achievements of our school community and the unwavering support of our stakeholders. From academic accomplishments to creative endeavors and everything in between, I am continually inspired by the dedication and passion displayed by our students and staff.

As we enter the final stretch of this exciting school year, we couldn’t be prouder of the accomplishments of our students. You’ll find many highlights as you continue to read below of both students and teachers doing remarkable things. We realize that the success of our students comes in part because of the tremendous support from parents and our community, but we should also recognize the dedicated employees who pour their heart and souls into our students every day. From teachers to bus drivers, secretaries, aides, custodians, food service staff, maintenance staff and administrators; we have a family approach here, and we take seriously our job of investing into the lives of every student, every day.

Andrew Feuling
Superintendent, Carson City School District


ArloEvening News Anchor Denise Wong with KOLO 8 News did a feature story last month about how a group of first grade students at Fritsch Elementary School were learning sign language to embrace their classmate. Arlo Gelsone, is hearing impaired, but that is not stopping him or his classmates from adapting, learning and having fun. The video shows how an American Sign Language Club, which meets every week, is “Breaking Sound Barriers” and teaching students to adapt. In the process and through empathy, the students found ways to play together with Arlo, even adapting the game “Duck, Duck, Goose.” Arlo’s Interpreter Marilyn Weese and Teacher Ruth Torres help describe the excitement in learning. Watch the video on YouTube here.

Crossing GuardsThe Carson City School District would like to thank all the crossing guards at the schools in Carson City for their commitment in helping keep students safe. Every school day, rain, snow, sleet or shine, these highly dedicated individuals serve as ambassadors for schools, and for many parents, the only interaction they have with their child’s school.

Crossing GuardCrossing guards not only assist students to cross the street safely, but they also often help set the tone and attitude for students, parents and employees each day. They are real heroes and provide an invaluable service to the community. Their smiles are contagious. Their simple message is clear. STOP. Be cautious. Be kind.

Above it all, they know each and every child (usually by name) who crosses their path twice daily. If you haven’t already, please 🛑 STOP 🛑 and thank a crossing guard.

The brief write-ups are not only featured on the district website, but they are also featured in local news media including CarsonNow.org and the Nevada Appeal. They are also featured on the district’s social media channels.

The success of many of our fall and winter sports teams and other extra-curricular activities and organizations certainly provides us all with a reason to celebrate.

Teen with PhoneWe would like to remind students and families that there is help at the touch of their fingertips. In July of last year, the U.S. transitioned the 10-digit National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to 988, an easy-to-remember three-digit number for 24/7 mental health crisis care.

The move to the three-digit 988 phone number makes it easier to dial when emotions are running high. It also alleviates suicide-related calls to 911, redirecting the caller to a mental health professional who’s able to better assist them and their immediate needs. Read more.
