We are coming off a very busy summer with the additions to our High School entrance, and the renovations of the Jacobs Elementary entrance. The support the Findlay community has shown to the school system has allowed us to address the entrances at these two schools to improve security. We will continue to care for the facilities so they will provide what is needed to educate our students. We will have the Jacobs Elementary work done prior to school starting on August 18th. However, we will be finishing the final work at the high school during the first few months after school starts. The entire custodial and maintenance staff have done an outstanding job of getting our facilities ready for school to begin. Our administration and teaching staff have made preparations for a great start to the school year, and the entire district is excited for the year to begin.
Please remember to check our website for important information regarding the start of school and also regularly check the website for information from the district and the building that your student(s) attend. We want to make the beginning of school a smooth process for both parents and students. If there are any questions needing more information than what is provided on the website please contact the building your student(s) attend.
Parents you can really help your student(s) get off to a good start by ensuring some regularity heading into the school year. Please make sure students are on a schedule conducive to performing productive work during school hours. Students that return to school without adjusting to school year times will struggle getting off to a good start. A rested student that is ready for the school day to start is an important factor for a great 2014-2015 school year.
Regarding the 2014-2015 school year, the Findlay School District wants to create a community partnership committed to educational excellence, with a mission to instill in each student the knowledge, skills and virtues necessary to be lifelong learners who recognize their unique talents and purpose. This will be accomplished through a passion for knowledge, discovery, and vision shared by students, families, staff, and the community. The communication between parents and the school is a key ingredient for success! We look forward to serving the students, parents, and Findlay Community! Have a great start to the school year!
