Principal's News/Updates

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to May, our final month of this school year. As the year comes to a close, I would like to thank you all for your support in your child's education. Research shows that when families are involved in their children's learning both at home and at school, their children do better in school.
The month of May brings many celebrations and school activities for our students and community. May 1st, there will be an awards ceremony for English Language Acquisition students. The ceremony will take place at the middle school at 5:00pm. May 3rd we will host our first annual Capstone Presentation Night in the high school commons from 5:00-6:30pm. May 8th is our National Honor Society Induction Ceremony at 6:00pm. May 11th our annual Dia de Las Madres celebration with dance performances will begin at 6:30pm. Prom will be held at the downtown aquarium this year on May 12, with After Prom Party to follow at the high school. May 15th we will have an Honor Roll Breakfast and all school awards assembly in the gym beginning at 8:00 a.m. May 22nd, the Senior Breakfast and Capping Ceremony will begin at 8:00am. Reservations for the breakfast can be made through Debra Oliver in the main office. Graduation will take place on May 26th, beginning at 10:00am.

May also brings the ending to some important assessments. AP tests will be conducted from May 7th through May 16th. Classroom finals will be held May 16th through 18th. Please encourage your child to prepare for these exams by studying a little each night, beginning at least two weeks before exam day. AP classes will be conducting practice tests as well to help prepare students.
All Edgenuity classes must be complete by 4:00pm on Friday, May 18th, in order to receive credit for the 2017-18 school year.

The last day of school for all students is May 18th. School will be in session all day on the 18th, with the 7th hour final in the morning from 8:00-10:13 a.m. and make up finals for the remainder of the school day. This provides students who may have scheduling conflicts with AP make up tests and finals, the opportunity to make up any exams needed.

High school staff will be busy packing up their classrooms during the month of May, in preparation of the renovation/construction of phase three classrooms. We are excited to return to school next August with phase three complete and all classrooms remodeled. This will conclude our renovation plan at the high school.
Looking ahead to Fall, registration dates are set for August 6th from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and 1:00p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and August 7th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

I truly enjoyed this year as Principal with the amazing students at FLHS. I look forward to expanding the course offerings and pathways at the school, and will continue to focus on preparing our students for success after high school.

Enjoy your summer break and thank you for all you do,

Marcia Hester
