February 2019/March, 2019
As we enter the dreary remnants of winter with full anticipation for spring, this has certainly been a challenging January due to extreme weather. It's hard to believe that January is over and we are moving into testing time for the students in grades 3-8. I continue to be impressed in the classroom and out of the classroom with our staff and students during these school cancellations. Many teachers are using Google classroom to continue to teach and provide lessons for their students. Students are also staying in touch with their teachers through Google and can continue working at home. Also, remember to sign up for text alerts if the school is delayed or canceled at http://www.fcs.org/text.htm.
As we move through the winter and approach the last quarter of the year, parents are encouraged to communicate any questions or concerns they may have with their student's progress. Remember to access progress book often so you are well-informed. We make every effort to be accessible and be a productive partner in seeking the maximum student achievement for your student.
IT IS KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION TIME!!! THE TROJAN TRADITION BEGINS NOW for students turning 5 years old before August 1, 2019. 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 at http://bit.ly/FCSKDG2019 Spring screening will be held beginning on March 4, 2019. 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 ensure 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 look forward to meeting you and your child.
Spring can bring about busier schedules and increased pressure to balance school with family and community activities. Recognizing when these demands overload little minds (and adults too!) is paramount to our physical and mental health. The district continues its focus on Trauma Informed Care and recognizing when students have reached "their limit". Please let us know if you notice your child experiencing difficulties.
We hope that you continue to find that Findlay City Schools truly is a place where we build thinkers, learners, and character! #TrojanTrue
