The mission of Flickinger Elementary School is to provide a caring, academic environment that empowers students to become responsible citizens and lifelong learners.

This month is packed with many exciting opportunities. Flickinger celebrates our love for reading and writing by devoting one month to literacy. Reading daily builds fluency, exposes students to vocabulary words in a variety of contexts, broadens their knowledge of the world and strengthens communication skills.

We talked about reading being a super power that all of us have at our kick-off assembly. It is something that requires lots of training or practice to improve. I encourage you to reread some of your family’s favorite books, explore new authors at your local library or create your own story together as a family this month in celebration of literacy.
