The 2016-2017 school year is off to great start! While visiting the buildings, it is amazing how many great efforts I see from administration, faculty, staff, and students. It is important that you communicate with us so that way we may better serve your student(s). This communication partnership with your student's school is essential to ensure a positive educational experience.
I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to stay connected with your student's teachers and building happenings. We have a tremendous amount of information on our website. You will notice at the top of the homepage you will see several tabs. You can find you child's school under the "Schools" tab and that will give you specific information regarding their schools including contact information. Please take a minute to scan the "Opportunities" tab. Here there are many community activities that may interest you and your child. Also on the homepage you may sign up for text alerts for delays and cancellations and sign up for district or school specific emails. We want to be sure every avenue of communication is open to you.
A Findlay City Schools initiative that you may have heard of is Trauma Informed Care (TIC). All staff have been trained in TIC. There are helpful tips for you as a parent on our website under the "for Parents" tab. You will see the FCS Cares Trauma Informed Care information box on the right hand side. There is valuable information there to help understand what TIC is and how you can help your child.
Findlay City Schools is honored and proud to serve the Findlay community and looks forward to improving our already strong community collaborations and our partnership with our students and parents to educate to the highest level. As our mission statement says: Educating and Empowering for Life!
