Superintendent's Message
March/April, 2017

With spring just around the corner, Findlay City Schools is heading into the home stretch of the 2016-2017 school year. There are many exciting curricular and extra-curricular activities taking place. Findlay City Schools cares and is working tirelessly on our commitment to being a trauma informed district. Your student(s) are extremely important to the staff and administration here at Findlay City Schools. We strive to go above and beyond to serve the families of this district. Please feel free to communicate with your students building if there are ways we can better serve you or your child.

We are proud of our connection with the community and the ability to work together for what is best for students. We have joined efforts with Raise the Bar and the Community Collective Impact Initiative to implement the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and the Leader In Me philosophy into our classrooms. We are excited to have Sean Covey the author of these great books coming to our community and schools to make this effort not only a school initiative but a community initiative. As a district our mission is Educating and Empowering for Life. With this great partnership, Findlay City Schools will help your students become productive citizens with a desire to live and work in Hancock County. We invite all of you to attend this great presentation on March 17, 2017 at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts.

It is also Kindergarten registration time! It is important to register any child turning five (5) on or before August 1, 2017. Registering early helps us keep class sizes down and staffed properly for the upcoming school year. Stop by your neighborhood primary school and receive a free Findlay Trojan t-shirt when you register your child.

On May 2nd Findlay City Schools will be asking voters to continuously renew the previously approved 4.9 operating levy. This levy will NOT raise your taxes and will preserve the 12.5% rollback credit currently being paid by the State on your behalf. Excellent schools benefit the entire community! As a community, we are proud of our outstanding schools, and we expect that our children will receive a quality education. By continuously renewing this operating levy, we will assure that our children will continue to have access to quality educational programs! Thank you for supporting our schools! If you have any questions regarding this levy, please feel free to contact me at ekurt@fcs.org. The deadline to register to vote is April 2, 2017.

In closing, I would like to thank you for making Findlay City Schools your choice to educate your children. We take this as an extreme honor and will work diligently to provide the best possible education for each and every student.
