IT IS KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION TIME!!! THE TROJAN TRADITION BEGINS NOW for students turning 5 years old before August 1, 2018. This year Findlay City Schools will be holding a spring screening to ensure your student is ready for kindergarten in the fall. If your child will be attending kindergarten next year, please visit www.fcs.org to get the kindergarten registration packet and register for spring screening. Spring screening will be held May 14th - May 18th. Open enrollment will begin on April 1st for those who live outside the Findlay City School district and wish to enroll in Findlay City Schools. We encourage you to register your child early so they can be part of the screening and the district can insure optimum class sizes. Any parent who is unsure about which school his or her child will attend may call 419.425.8275 for information.
We are about to end the third grading period on March 16, 2018. The school year seems to be flying by as we prepare for state testing in grades 3-8. There are seven courses that now have a state required end of course exam at the high school level, these are part of the state graduation requirements. We have just completed student requests for courses next year at the high school. The high school counselors and administrators work diligently to meet your child's requests. If you have any questions regarding your high school student's schedule for the 2018-2019 school year please do not hesitate to contact the high school office to schedule a time to speak with them.
Throughout the district we continue to expand our Trauma Informed Care initiatives. The district works to align our programs and curriculum to not only meet and exceed state standards, but to connect with the initiatives of the community. Leader in Me initiatives continue to move forward and our work at aligning Millstream Career Center with the needs of the local work force continue. Millstream's welding program and robotics program, along with their enrollment, continues to expand at the Career Center. Millstream also offers many adult education classes. For more information contact Millstream at 419.427.5422.
We are continuing to develop a partnership/sister city relationship with Kawaguchi City, a suburb of Tokyo, Japan. We are looking forward to increasing our knowledge of their culture and affording them the opportunity to have their students visit our community and attend Findlay High School.
As superintendent, I continue to be grateful for the opportunity to work in the Findlay City School district. As a district that offers many opportunities for students and staff to grow, both personally and academically, we also build a community of caring individuals that far exceeds what would be expected and they continue to go the extra mile over and over. That caring and compassionate attitude throughout the district makes Findlay City Schools a great place to educate your children and to work. I am so proud to be a Trojan!
