Superintendent Message from Dr. Pam Sloan
Welcome Back Students, Staff, Families, and Community,
The Francis Howell School District closed out our Centennial Celebration in May 2015, and today, we begin our 101st year of serving students. While the tools, content, and content delivery have changed through the years, our foundational principles of preparing our students well for college and career remain constant, and we remain steadfastly committed to serving your child.
This summer we had a couple of extra weeks due to no snow days during the 2014-15 school year. This additional time allowed families to spend a little more time together and for our building and custodial teams to prepare our buildings after our successful summer school programming concluded. The buildings, classrooms, and playing fields look great thanks to the hard work of our awesome custodial and maintenance staffs.
During the summer, there were various renovation and maintenance projects done in buildings throughout the district. Those have now wrapped up, and the buildings are ready for the students and staff, with the exception of the work being done on the fields at Francis Howell North High School. This is an ongoing project, and the work will continue throughout the school year.
Our teachers and administrators participated in several learning opportunities this summer, and many have been working in the buildings for the last couple of weeks to make sure that the staff is ready for the students. While it is always nice to have the summer break, we are always anxious to have the classrooms and hallways filled with our students again. We look forward to meeting each of them this week.
We hope each student and family has a great 2015-16 school year. If we can be of service to you during the school year, please call on us.
Have a great day!
Superintendent of Schools
