December 2017 - January 2018
It is amazing how quickly the holidays have arrived! December and January are very busy times for families as well as our schools. With all the holiday programs and hustle and bustle of holiday happenings at home, students and families are busier than ever. For a complete list of events please click here: http://www.fcs.org.
I am excited to share that many teachers in our district have become trainers for our ignition team. The ignition team is lighting sparks in the buildings to improve and enhance the use of technology in classrooms throughout the district. I am particularly pleased with this group and the Technology Department for their collaboration. The Director of Technology, Mr. White has been working closely with our curriculum directors, Ms. Roth and Mr. Steiner to increase the use of technology and give our teachers the tools that will improve our instruction and student achievement.
Once again, collaborating with our community partners is extremely important for our families. Our community steps up to make a connection with our students in many important ways. Clothe-a-Child, Feed-a-Child, Children's Mentoring Connection, The Arts Partnership, The Marathon Performing Arts Center, The Family Center and many others reach out to the district during the year to help provide and serve the needs of our families.
We continue to look for ways to improve our connection and collaborations with parents, students and the community. In this effort, we are holding focus groups with stakeholders across the district. We have open discussions in these meetings concerning your thoughts throughout the district regarding our innovation plan and educational programs. If you would like to be a part of a focus group, please contact your school principal. We would encourage you to become involved in helping us make Findlay City Schools the best it can be.
In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making Findlay City Schools your choice for educating your children.
Educating and Empowering for Life!
