Register for Otter Adventures

Dear Parents and Guardians of Fergus Falls Elementary Schools,

Greetings from the Roosevelt Building! My name is Carey Johnson, and I’m the new director of the ALC. It’s exciting to be in this district and working with students of all ages. I’m particularly excited about the chance to spend time with the elementary students throughout the school year.

At conferences, you may have been given the opportunity to sign up for Otter Adventures through teacher referral. On the back of this letter are the calendar dates for each of the three sessions during the school year. Please note: Summer Otter Adventures registration will come later.

Each Otter Adventures session will start with a snack and game time. Students will have lessons following that will focus on their individual academic needs. Students in the city limits of Fergus Falls are eligible for transportation if needed. Parents wishing to pick their students up after Otter Adventures may do so in the circle drive
of Roosevelt.

We welcome your students to Otter Adventures! The link to register is listed below. If you have further questions, please contact me at 218.998.0544 x 9230.

Please complete this form to register!


On behalf of the Fergus Falls Public School District, I extend a warm welcome.  We are honored that you have entrusted us with the care and education of your child. 

The Fergus Falls Public School District is a special place.  Our mission statement outlines our commitment to each and every child:  “The mission of the Fergus Falls Public Schools is to prepare productive and engaged members of society by creating an environment where all students reach their full potential.”

What will your child’s experience be as a member of our school community?  Children will be surrounded by adults who care about them.  We will provide the necessary support to help ensure that each child is successful.  Children will be challenged.  That’s how new skills are developed and how learning, confidence and leadership is fostered. 

In providing a robust 21st century learning environment - we emphasize the five “Cs” - Core Knowledge, Creative Problem Solving, Communication, Contributing Citizen and Character.  These core competencies ensure that our students will be well-positioned for success wherever their dreams take them.

We pride ourselves on providing a rigorous academic curriculum with a diverse selection of electives.  We support our students with a 1:1 technology initiative to augment instruction, we have strong vocational programs and excellent participation among our students in the arts.  A large percentage of our students are involved in co-curricular activities and our programs are highly respected and competitive.  In summary, we offer the family atmosphere of a small rural school combined with the opportunities typically only found in much larger districts. 

Through the process of discovering and developing their talents, interests and skills, our students are going to make great memories, grow in confidence, become leaders in our school and community and form lifelong friendships.  Once an Otter, always an Otter!

Warmest Regards,

Jeff Drake
