BACK-TO-SCHOOL KNIGHT NOTES

Welcome Back!

THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR IS HERE

Dear Staff:


Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I hope that you have had an amazing summer and that you enjoyed an opportunity to rest, relax, and recharge.


I am excited to be back at school. FHN had a very good 2016-2017 school year. Our kids made some strong gains, and it is because of the strong relationships and instruction that you have formed with them. Thanks for all of your hard work and for being such caring professionals.


I am also eager to begin the 2017-2018 school year. Our shared mission is "creating an environment which will inspire students to be lifelong learners and to develop their academic, social, aesthetic, and physical potentials" and on helping students "to contribute as productive citizens in an ever-changing global society." This is something that we continue to focus on every year.


I have included some important dates and times in this newsletter, and I have also listed the names of new staff members. Please take the time to look at the dates and times, and please let me know if you have any questions. In addition, please introduce yourselves to our new staff members and help them to see why FHN is such a great place to be. I know they will enjoy being a part of of our staff and appreciate the opportunity to meet you.


I am confident that this will be a fantastic school year, and I look forward to working with all of you to help our students grow and learn. Thank you for all that you do! Enjoy the rest of your break!


Sincerely,


Andy

Thank you and Best Wishes

At FHN, it is always hard to say goodbye to the wonderful staff members with whom we have had the fortune of working. The following people will no longer be working at FHN, but I know you join me in wishing them well:


  • Ben Ra has taken a position with Lindenwood University. He has been an awesome member of our staff for several years. I am very happy for him to have this new opportunity, but I am sad to see him go.
  • Cindy McDaniels has taken a position at Saeger Middle School as a BIS. Cindy will now have a full-year position. I know she is very excited about this opportunity, and I wish her well in her new role.
  • Rachel Snider has resigned from FHN. I am sad to see her go, but I certainly wish her the best in the future. It has been great to have her at FHN.

SEE YOU ON AUGUST 2ND!!!!
