Friday Firebird Flash

November 20, 2015

Good afternoon Firebird families,

School is in session next Monday and Tuesday and then we're off for Fall Break the rest of the week. Have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your families. What are you thankful for this holiday season? I am thankful for my Firebird family. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing educators, staff, students, and parents.

For those of you who hunt, good luck and be safe!

Proud to be your principal,

Brent Johnson

Has your phone number changed?

We use phone numbers from your information on Infinite Campus to send out automatic phone calls for important school alerts such as school closings! We will do a test run in early December.

Call the office with any phone changes. You are also able to change your information yourself on the parent portal on Infinite Campus.

Keep us informed so we can keep you informed!
