Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


As we move into the busy month of December this week, I would like to remind all of you to continue to work with us on ensuring that our students are concentrating on the work and tasks within their classes. With all the distractions and interference that this month can illicit, it is so very important that we all cooperate to provide the most focused learning environment possible. After this Wednesday (staff meeting Wednesday), we have three more "Opportunity Wednesdays" available to our students. We would like to invite all of our students to attend at least one of the various academic choices availed to them to solidify their learning moving forward.


The focus of our upcoming week will be the return to the stage of our talented drama students in the production of "Radium Girls" from November 29 to December 2. It's absolutely fantastic to see our students back and sharing their passion for the stage with a live audience. We also have basketball teams beginning their season soon, and within three weeks we will be hosting our first band concert since before the pandemic. Lots of learning and activities between now and the new year!


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Ken Wlos

Principal
