FSC Principal's Update

February 11, 2022

Finneytown Families,


Thanks to all of you who came to conferences this week! For those who didn't, it isn't too late. We have conferences next Thursday from 4-7:30. If you do not have the link, it is on the website or you can reach out to Lisa Turner to schedule an appointment. We would love to see everyone! Also, thanks to PTA for the pizza and goodies. You guys know how to take care of us for sure:-)

I can't wait for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Hopefully the Bengals bring home a winner. Enjoy the game and then rest up the next day.


If you have any questions, please reach out.

Staff Spotlight (Stefanie Kennedy)

Hey Finneytown!


My name is Stefanie Kennedy and I have been teaching at Finneytown for the past 8 years. I am the Orchestra Director, and for the last three years have also been the Choir Director. I love working with our students and making music every day. It has been amazing to watch the kids and program grow through the time that I've been at Finneytown. I love getting to know our students and talking with them, and I love seeing them grow as people and musicians from when they start playing their instruments in 5th grade to when they reach high school.


When I'm not at school, my husband Mike and I train our dogs for competitive obedience competitions--our Golden Retriever Ember knows and responds to over 50 words. My first instrument was the flute, and I still practice both flute and violin at home, play video games, and read. That said, our three kids keep us busy and it's rare for me to have the time to finish a book! Our family stays active and likes to go to the park, walks a lot, and likes to watch movies together. Feel free to stop by room 120 and say "hi" anytime!
