The elementary building offers visitors and families with first-class service and support, while providing a physical environment that showcases our students' hard work and emphasizes the "Brave Traits" that our district is known for: Respect, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Perseverance, and Citizenship. Our building continues to build upon these characteristics on a day-to-day basis, and most notably, we have completed a successful schoolwide "No Place for Hate" campaign during the 2020-21 school year. This campaign continues to highlight the district's mission to create a more equitable and inclusive climate.
Academic excellence is accomplished through fostering relationships with all students and families, best practices, responsive teaching and data analysis. This success is attributed to the use of formative and summative assessment tools coupled with teachers using assessments to drive daily instruction. We have invested in high-quality classroom libraries in all of our classrooms. Our students are learning to read from the moment they enter our prekindergarten or kindergarten classrooms. As students read to learn in the intermediate grades, our students enter the Middle School with strong foundational literacy skills.
At FFCSD, we believe:
In a learning community that promotes positive character and good citizenship.
In learning communities that support students to become self-directed, lifelong learners.
That an emotionally and physically safe environment is most conducive for effective teaching and learning.
In celebrating our student and staff successes.
In high expectations for all students and staff.
In a commitment to continuous improvement through professional reflection and relevant data analysis.
In providing the programs and resources necessary to support our educational mission while respecting the financial commitment of our taxpayers.
In long-term fiscal planning to support financial stability.
That open and honest communication with all stakeholders will lead to the best decisions for students.
That children benefit when their parents are active participants in their education and that all students benefit when community members are involved in the governance of their schools.
