Findley Elementary School

February 1, 2019


Findley readers read a total of 696,311 minutes which equals 11,605 hours. We not only read a lot but we were able to provide 6 sets of goats for families in need.

The top reading class in K-2 was Mrs. Schulz / Mrs. Gillis and for 3-5 Mrs. Clay's class. Congratulations on adopting the goats for the rest of the year!!

Way to go Findley!

Congratulations Mrs. Whitten

Mrs. Whitten was hired as the new principal at Greenway Elementary School. Her last day at Findley was 1/25. We wish her the best and know that Greenway will enjoy having such a wonderful principal!

Welcome, Mrs. Hulquist!

Findley Flyer Needs Volunteers!!!

Findley Flyers is a running/walking club that takes place during recess on Tuesdays and Thursdays before school at 8am.

If your child is interested in participating, just tell them to come find us on the playground at recess or Thursday morning before school out on the track. Every student has a running card ready to go and they can run or walk as much as they choose - earning prizes along the way and learning that exercise can be fun! It encourages kids to be physically fit and work towards goals. You don’t need to be a runner to volunteer. There are a lot of ways you can help out.


· Volunteering - It's fun & easy; help students find cards, mark cards for completed laps, hand out prizes and cheer on students!

· Sign up on the link provided so we can see that we have enough volunteers and notify you in case we need to cancel due to weather: http://signup.com/go/5XxkNg

· Sign in on the mVP time clock in the front office, grab your Photo ID Badge and meet us at the Findley Playground.
