Heading into Spring Break-Celebrating!


Only a few hours until Spring Break!   We wish you a great break with lots of rest, relaxation, and safe travels.  The final quarter of the SY will come and go after our return and I am looking forward to finishing strong with an emphasis on 19-20 SY planning!

A Few things to Celebrate:

I-Ready EOY: FSK saw growth from Beginning of the year to End of Year assessments at every grade level and across both Math and ELA.  Here are a few of the higher gains from BOY to EOY:

2nd ELA: +25%

4th ELA: +18%

1st Math: +23%

2nd Math: +22%

3rd Math: +34%

4th Math: +22%

*It was great to see gains in Middle School as well*

Last year at this time, I challenged the Pre-K team to work toward Maryland Pre-K Accreditation.  Not only did they rise to the occasion, but worked hard to successful gain accreditation in only 10 months!  This distinction shows that we are working hard to build and support students from the time they enter FSK.  I am so proud of the Pre-K team and everyone that supporting through the process!


I want to THANK everyone that took time out of their busy day to Nominate me for the Heart of the Schools Award.  I was selected as an Honoree for the second time in three years and I am so thankful to work with amazing students, staff, parents, and community as we work to make FSK a great place from Pre-K through 8!  Thank you for thinking of me, it is appreciated and humbling.

There will no Parent Newsletter until we return.

Have a great "Break"!
