From The Principal

Dear Flickinger Families,
During the last week of April, the staff and I had the opportunity to show our
appreciation for all of the volunteers who give their time to our school. Family and community members are an integral part of this school team. Their time and talents not only enhance the education of their children but all who attend our school. I would like to extend special thanks to the Flickinger Parent group. They provide support to our educational programs as well as bring our school community together through social events. Their commitment to education helps make each year memorable for our students.

We have many exciting activities taking place this last quarter of school including Muffins with Mom, Annual Flower Sale, grade level field trips and Field Day. If you are able to volunteer at any of our events, please let us know.

Our third annual Science Fair will be on May 16th. Families can enjoy viewing the outstanding projects our students put together in the gym. There will be a book fair set-up in the Media Center from Scholastic. It is a great opportunity to stock up on books for the summer break. Finally, we will have a pizza food truck out front for those families that are looking to grab dinner or a snack. Our school website and Facebook page posts event dates along with information about them.

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, please make sure to be mindful of students walking to and from school. Drivers need to maintain low speeds in our parking lot so you are able to stop quickly if needed. It takes all of us working together to keep our children safe!

Thank you for being a part of our Flickinger TEAM and supporting excellence in education for all Flickinger students!
