Our 2015-16 school year is off and running. It is hard to believe as of October 16th we will be at the end of the first grading period. I would like to thank all the students, parents and staff for the outstanding start of the school year. As a district we continue to work hard on improving instructional strategies to create maximum student achievement. We could not accomplish this without the collaboration of parents, staff and the community.
As a district, we have received Trauma Informed Care (TIC) training to better serve our students and their needs. A few of our support programs for students include: Leader In Me, Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS). The community has stepped up with many mentoring collaboration opportunities for the students with Campfire, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Children's Mentoring Connection, Second Step, and I Am Enough just to name a few. Please feel free to contact your child's school to get more information on the opportunities available or visit our website www.fcs.org and look under opportunities. I am also pleased to announce our high school students continue to score above the state average on the ACT test!
I would like to remind students and parents of the importance of finishing the calendar year with a strong academic performance. We will begin the second grading period on October 16, 2015 and exams will be before the holiday break. Please be sure to keep in contact with your child's teachers and building principal and let them know if there is anything they can provide to strengthen the partnership to insure your student's academic success.
I encourage you to keep the line of communication open and visit our website often. Please sign up for text alerts for delays and cancellations and well as other school related information. Feel free to sign up at the district level and also for building information.
Remember - Be Trojan Proud and carry on the Tradition of Excellence!!!!
