Letter from the Principal

  • Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,


    Our staff is dedicated to enriching every student in their academic and social growth, we teach the “Whole Child.” This year we have built into the schedule additional time to enhance the education of our students by direct instruction and provide an opportunity for teachers to meet and analyze data that will inform high quality instruction.  When needed, students will receive additional practice in a specific area that focus on language arts and mathematic skills


    Again this year all of our students will enjoy an off-campus Field Day however, only the 8th grade will have an additional off-campus trip.  This will allow for our 6th and 7th graders to fund raise for their 8th grade trip.  This decision was based on the increased cost of bussing and admissions and was supported by the FIS PTO. Additional information will follow.


    We are fortunate to have an active PTO who supports our students in a variety of ways.  It is through their efforts that our students receive agendas and off-campus Field Days.  I encourage all the parents to become active members of the FIS PTO.  Parents should also plan to register with Genesis, our student data system, attend Back to School Night and Parent/Teacher conferences.  Information will also be posted on the FIS website.  You can find all staff email addresses on the website as well


    Reminder - Please go to my BLAST page for current dates. 

    I look forward to meeting all of you and I wish you a wonderful year filled with academic and personal successes. Feel free to email me, call, drop a note or set up a time to meet if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.
