SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2019

It is amazing that we are into November, our first grading period ended October 30, 2019, and Mother Nature has cooperated with no fog delays!  As a district we continue to work through our strategic plan and innovation initiative to improve our instructional strategies to attain improved student achievement.  We are tremendously proud of the districts commitment to the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey and our Trauma Informed Care initiative.  These efforts have improved our student’s abilities to process situations that in the past may have created additional problems including undesired behaviors, discipline issues, and the inability to perform effectively in their classroom environment.  Recognizing these situations and addressing them with the help of aides, cooks, bus drivers, custodians, teachers, counselors, and administration have created numerous positive outcomes.

The second grading period is a very busy one with school programs, concerts, and events taking place. This District understands the importance of these events in creating a well-rounded student and I encourage students and parents to attend an event between now and January 2020 and experience the talents our staff and students have in vocal, instrumental, and creative electives. Taking in an event with your child/children will have lasting effects on all of you.

We also emphasize to parents to communicate with us so we may work to support and serve your student(s) to the best of our ability.  I urge parents to get involved with support organizations such as booster clubs, PTO, and always feel free to contact my office with any questions.  It is essential to the district and the Board of Education that your voice is heard and as we move forward our efforts are a true reflection of the community wishes for education in Findlay City Schools!
