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.

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

Electronic Report Cards

Flickinger Elementary offers parents two easy ways to electronically access your student’s semester grades through a secure system.  These options will allow parents to view semester grades and attendance as soon as the information becomes available:

  • PowerSchool - PowerSchool allows you to view semester grades and attendance. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to the end of the marking period. The report cards will be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.
  • SchoolMessenger - As an added featured, the system we use to communicate with you through automated e-mails and phone messages also provides parents a secure way to manage and receive information.  This registration process will also allow you to set your preferred method of notifications for emergencies and school notices. Parents must first have a PowerSchool account to register for this system.

Our school no longer automatically prints and mails report cards to parents. Printed report cards are available by requesting one from our school office. 

More information on how to register for secure accounts is available at:
