From The Principal
It is difficult to believe that the school year is already half over. The beginning of the second
semester provides us with the opportunity to review our educational objectives and assess progress towards achieving our goals for this year. There have been so many worthwhile activities happening at
Flickinger, both in and out of the classrooms, as we continue with our academic endeavors.
Involved parents are what help make Flickinger Elementary a successful school. Parents are integral to the success and achievement of our students. Studies show that when parents get involved in their
children’s education good things happen; grades and test scores improve, children develop better social
skills and they are less likely to abuse drugs and alcohol. A way to stay
informed about your child’s progress is by accessing the Parent Portal in PowerSchool. The office can
provide you with the login information needed to obtain your child’s information if you need it.
The next Flickinger Parent Group meeting is scheduled for February 28th at 7:00 pm in the
Media Center. The Parent Group provides support for many academic programs and organizes a wide
variety of after school activities. The Parent Group can only be successful with your help. Parents who are
unable to volunteer during the school day can provide valuable service to our school by becoming involved in the activities through our Parent Group.
Mid-Winter Break is upon us this month. Enjoy the time together during that week off. I am
looking forward to hearing your child’s stories about their vacation when they return to school.
Thank you for the countless ways you continue to support your student and our school.
