Dear FSAS Family,
We would like to welcome our new students to FSAS and are excited to see our returning students ready for another successful year! We are excited to add Ms. Peterson to our team this year as our new Assistant Principal. I’m so proud of our accomplishments that we achieved together last year. Our Literacy Benchmark scores increased 10% and our Math Benchmark scores increased 11%. The percent of students that achieved 95% Attendance increased 31% as well! We are on the rise and we are enthusiastically looking forward to building on last year’s success. At FSAS, it is very important that your children come to school every day and on time. All students are expected to earn 95% attendance, which means they can’t miss more than 9 school days throughout the year. Breakfast will be served before school from 7:45-8:15am. At 8:15am students will transition to begin their academic day. I expect to see all students present and on time every day. At FSAS we believe that when expectations are set high, children will rise to the challenge. Your children will receive the highest quality education delivered by a passionate, talented, and caring staff that wants to see each child reach their full potential. We put an emphasis on utilizing sound instructional strategies that implement the Common Core State Standards in a way that provides meaningful and memorable learning experiences for your children. Each day, your children will develop the skills necessary to become critical thinkers so that they can gain a deep understanding of the curriculum. Our school also puts an emphasis on showcasing the various skills and talents that your children possess. We will hold numerous events throughout the year to display these talents and I hope to see you there to
support the children of our school. I expect this to be another phenomenal year for the entire FSAS family. Our doors are always open and I encourage you to visit, share your ideas and concerns, and play an active role in all of the great accomplishments that your children will achieve this year.
