Findley Elementary School
August 31, 2018
A Message from Dr. Marsh
What a great first week back! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your kiddos and the greater Findley community. It was wonderful to be able to meet so many parents this week as well, whether it was at Back to School Night, at lunch or before or after school. Everyone has been so warm and welcoming, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your learners have been busy this week getting back into the groove, building their classroom communities, learning new routines and procedures, and setting goals for the new school year. Also, our first assembly was today. As you can see, we had a lot of fun. Some students even gave me some great advice on what it means to be Findley Dragon.
Don't forget, next week is a short week. No school on Monday, Sept. 3 due to the Labor Day holiday and Early Release starts Wednesday Sept. 5, with dismissal at 1:35. Also, on Friday we will have our Dragon Dash kick-off assembly!
Have a great LONG weekend,
