SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

SEPTEMBER 2019

As Superintendent of Findlay City Schools, I feel deeply grateful to be in a caring community that is meaningfully engaged with our schools, supported by staff who work together for the benefit of all students.

As we start this new school year I would like to extend to you my sincere appreciation for all of the ways you have contributed to each child’s education, supported our teachers and staff, and advocated for excellence in our schools.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank local businesses for their support of your Findlay Trojans.  You may have noticed around town, many businesses have put Trojan signs in their windows showing their continued support!

It is hard to believe that the 2019-2020 school year is here! I hope you and your family had time to Sharpen the Saw and enjoy some time together.  We are excited to announce we have a new look to our website and we have new tools to help us better serve our families. These include an online registration process for all students.  That means no more mountains of paperwork to fill out and return. Instead, families can take care of this process at their convenience and each year just make the minor changes that may need to be made.

There are many wonderful things happening at Findlay City Schools.  One exciting initiative this school year is the district will be 1:1 with chromebooks in grades 3-12! (K-2 students work off carts to train for 1 to 1 starting in 3rd grade) We have 34 new teachers that are excited and ready to meet your student(s). Many teachers and staff members have been taking advantage of professional development opportunities. 

We encourage you to become engaged at your child’s school. There are many volunteer opportunities and we invite you to attend PTO meetings. We value your input and need your help to be certain each student has the best possible experience. We encourage you to stay in contact with your students’ teachers. Many teachers have Facebook pages as do the schools and the district, along with many events and opportunities shared at #TrojanTrue! This is a great way to stay informed. 

The district’s mission statement is Educating and Empowering for Life! We need everyone’s help to ensure each student becomes an empowered leader in our community. Feel free to contact your child’s teacher, principal or me anytime we can be of assistance to you! I look forward to wonderful 2019-20 school year! GO TROJANS!!
