From the Principal

From the Principal: Flintville Nation, As you all know by now, our school has earned the highest recognitions a school can earn from Tennessee's Department of Education: "A", "5", and "Rewards School." To earn a Rewards School distinction, a school's standardized test scores must fall in the top five percent of schools for academic growth and/or the top five percent for student growth. Not only did Flintville School earn these distinctions, our school district earned a distinction of "Exemplary". I want to personally thank you for everything you did to support us as we navigated through the 2020-2021 school year. These distinctions would not have occurred had you all not supported us. Now, our goal is to maintain that level of student learning, and rest assured, we are already working hard to ensure that our students, your children, learn at the highest level possible.

Mrs. Lindsey's Lessons

Fall is college football season!! See if there’s any smaller colleges in your area that have teams. Division II and III teams often have inexpensive tickets, but still have bands and cheerleaders and all the pageantry of larger college games. Make it a day trip, and tour campus in the morning! Most schools have free tours where they share historical info on the school’s founding. This is a great opportunity for a family to interact.

Counselor's Corner

Happy Fall Ya’ll !!

I can’t believe it’s almost time for Fall Break! We’ve already covered so much in guidance class this year. We’ve learned about “looking on the bright side”, how positive attitudes can impact your life now and in the future, diversity and appreciating each other’s differences, and now we are studying bullying. I think the children are enjoying the group work and activities we’ve been doing.

We’ve also been enjoying some special activities like our homecoming dress-up days and special treats from the concession stand on Fridays. Keep in mind all of the fun activities we have coming up too like our basketball games, the band concert, and Harvest Festival!

As cooler weather approaches, let me know if your child could use a warm jacket, tennis shoes, boots, gloves, hygiene products, or really…just about anything! We have a WONDERFUL family resource department stocked full of free items we can give away to our students.

We also partner with a group called “Clothe-Our-Kids” so we can ask for all kinds of clothing from them. It is completely private and the only people who would even know your child’s name would be our nurse or myself! Remember, it doesn’t make you seem like a bad parent just because you need a little help from time to time. Everything is so expensive and we are MORE THAN HAPPY to help you and our little students!

Until next time…stay well, shower your kids with love, encourage good habits, and call on us if you need anything! My phone number is 931-937-8140 and my email is hevans@lcdoe.org
