From The Principal

Dear Flickinger Families,

Thank you for attending Parent/Teacher Conferences last month. The staff and I appreciate your continued partnership in developing an academic foundation that will lead our students to success in their futures. Please remember to obtain and set-up your Parent PowerSchool account if you have not already. Report cards will continue to be sent out electronically for the remaining quarters of the school year. 

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to wish you and your family many happy moments during this Winter Break. I thank you for your generous donations of toys, hats, mittens and canned foods. It was a wonderful way for Flickinger to support the families within our community.

Enjoy the time off with your family and we look forward to seeing you in 2018!

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

On Wednesday, August 30 the Kindergarten teachers will host a “Meet & Greet” for you and your child from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. This evening is designed to reduce any apprehension about the first day of school by allowing parents and students the opportunity to meet the teachers and explore the classrooms. Kindergarten parents will be expected to attend Curriculum Night on September 14, 2017 for detailed information about the Kindergarten curriculum.

This year, we will communicate grade level classroom assignments for your child in a convenient and secure manner. We will be emailing the classroom assignments to you directly using the e-mail addresses on file in PowerSchool on Wednesday, August 30, 2017. Your child’s assignment can also be viewed via the PowerSchool Parent Portal that will be available beginning August 30, 2017. If you do not receive an email or are unable to access the information through the Parent Portal by the end of the day on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, please contact the school office at 586-797-4900.

Curriculum Night is scheduled for Thursday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m. This is your opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and to understand the teachers’ academic and behavioral expectations. I urge all parents and guardians, especially those new to our school, to put this evening on your calendar. The opportunity to meet your child’s teacher helps to set the stage for your child’s success this school year. This evening is designed, for adults only, as a general overview of the teacher’s expectations. If you have specific questions about your child, I urge you to contact your child’s teacher to set-up a conference.

We are in need of Lunch Supervisors and Lunch Volunteers. Lunch Supervisors work from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and may apply through the district to get paid for their time. Lunch Supervisors and Volunteers help children with their lunch needs and oversee lunch recess.
