Welcome and Welcome Back!
I hope you had fun this summer, and I hope you are relaxed, recharged, and ready to start a new school year. I am so honored to serve as your new principal and excited that you are part of our amazing learning community. It is so welcoming to experience and value your positive energy and commitment to our children. The staff and I plan to partner with you in celebration and dedication to ensuring excellence in education.
This year will be an incredible and productive school year. Our energetic and dedicated staff is already planning and preparing innovative lessons, activities, and projects-based learning for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic leadership team, communication director, and data management team are working in collaboration to register new families, order needed materials, new technology and update student files. Our hard working and conscientious cleaners have spent the summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. Staff is gearing up and planning an awesome orientation process to welcome families on Monday. Our much-appreciated PTO is diligently working on providing volunteer opportunities and are offering other exciting events and programs for our FAST families and staff.
We have been working in partnership with our service providers (i.e., janitorial services, exterminators, modular classrooms, etc.) to assure our buildings are ready for our students.
Thank you to all for your continued commitment. FAST remains a celebrated and successful awe-inspiring school. I eagerly look forward to meeting you on Monday. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all our children. I look forward to working with you and your children.
My Warmest Regards,
Dr. Kay Williams

As you drive through carpool, please be sure to heed the direction of our staff in the parking lot. Please be respectful to our staff and other parents as we move cars through as quickly as we can while still ensuring the safety of our students. Carpool will be much slower during the first few weeks than it will be for the rest of the year. Students and parents will be learning the process and our teachers will be getting to know the students.
