From The Principal

March was filled with creative and motivating ways to increase our students’ time reading. Thank you for your continued support at home encouraging and praising your child as they strive to reach higher levels of achievement through reading. The student body exceeded one of our school goals of reading 100,000 minutes by the third week of March.

It’s hard to believe that the month of April brings us to the start of our fourth marking period. Report cards will be distributed electronically via email on Thursday, April 13th to all parent that have signed up for a secure PowerSchool Parent Portal account. Please contact the office if you still need your child’s information. 


Thank you for your continued support of your child’s education and the success of our school community.

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.
