Happy Fall iFlagler Knights! I hope you are all enjoying the cooler weather. Today marks the end of the 12th week of school. That leaves only 6 more weeks until the end of the semester and Winter Break. All students must be 100% complete with all current semester/segment 1 course work by December 22nd. Specific teachers might request course work to be completed earlier than the 22nd to ensure there is enough time to remediate and retake/redo assessments for grade improvement if necessary. Students, be sure to get organized and plan ahead of time to schedule DBAs and help sessions. Appointment slots fill up fast so schedule in advance.
I am pleased to introduce our newest Knight, Assistant Principal, Mr. Scott Bannon. Mr. Bannon and his family moved to Florida from Connecticut. When he isn't busy helping students and families he enjoys family time, the beach, and riding his bike all over Flagler County. This is Mr. Bannon's 26th year in education. The thing he loves most about his job is connecting with students and families. We are thrilled Mr. Bannon joined the iFlagler family.
Erin Quinn, Principal
Fortress Fridays - Grades 6-12

Mathematics - 8am - 10am
English/ Language Arts/ Electives - 10am - 12pm

Please report to the office and sign in & out.
No Cell phones are needed on Fortress Fridays. If a student has a cell phone, it should be turned off and properly secured in a backpack.
Students are encouraged to bring a snack(s) and water.
Reminder - All students should bring their device. They will have time to work independently and one-on-one with a teacher.

State Testing and iFlagler
The ultimate goal of Florida state testing is to provide teachers, parents and students with critical information in regards to student learning. iFlagler wants to encourage all students to participate. The data is important for us to reflect on teaching and learning. Test results are used to plan academic interventions and build student schedules. Several tests are required for grade level promotion and graduation requirements. The testing experience is beneficial for all students. They will learn how to manage time, implement test taking strategies, and set goals for the future. If you have any questions, let us know. Please be reminded that all testing will take place at the Government Services Building located at 1769 East Moody Blvd. on the third floor.
