Letter from the Principal

Dear FSAS Family,

I would like to welcome our new students to FSAS and I’m excited to see our returning students ready for another successful year! Last year, schools closed abruptly but our students persevered and did an incredible job learning through a new online environment. In an effort to make sure all students, staff, and community members remain safe, schools will continue to deliver instruction virtually through at least November 17th. Our teachers have been preparing and working hard to make sure that your child is provided with a high-quality education each and every day. If you encounter any challenges and obstacles, we will be here for you every step of the way!

At FSAS, it is very important that your child attends school every day. All students are expected to earn 95% attendance, which means they can’t miss more than 8 school days throughout the year. Your child must log into his digital classroom at 8:15 am for our daily Community Meeting. Your child will then follow their assigned schedule that will be emailed to their school district account. 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 want to see each child reach their full potential.

Whether learning through a digital environment, hybrid approach, or face-to-face in our classrooms, 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.


Mr. Piniat
