Home of the Falcons

Dear Flickinger Families,

The beginning of the school year is always filled with excitement. Falcon Day is a new tradition we added this year for families to visit the school and see each other.

Our Open House is schedule for September 7th at 7:00 p.m.  This adult event begins in the gym for a building and district overview then an opportunity to meet your child's teacher. 

The school meal program will be returning to students purchasing breakfast or lunch.  A convenient way to add funds to your child's account is through the link online.  Breakfast will begin at 8:00 a.m.  Students will enter through the main entrance.

Flickinger classroom teachers will be greeting their students at their outside classroom doors again this year.  Teachers will be outside to assist families on classroom locations and teacher assignments. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at (586) 797-4900.  I am looking forward to a fantastic year!


Have an amazing day!

Mrs. Brunetz
