FSC Principal's Update

February 18, 2022

Finneytown Families,


A special thanks to Mrs. Howard for organizing the blood drive. Hoxworth was able to collect 22 units of blood on Tuesday!! We all know people who are helped/impacted by blood donations. I love working with a community that thinks of others and finds ways to help.

Congrats to our Varsity Boys Bowling team. They are moving on to District Championships!!

Thanks to all the families who came out to conferences on Thursday. I know the weather wasn't great but you made the effort to come and build community with our staff and I appreciate that! PTA took care of staff once again, as they always do.

I know it is on the dates below but March 2nd (ACT Testing) is a day that ONLY juniors report to school. This test is important for our students and we treat it as such.


I hope you all enjoy this nice, extended weekend. If you have any questions, please reach out.
