Hello Cardinal Families,

It is hard to believe that we are less than two weeks away from the start of another school year.

We have had several changes this summer here at FFLSD. Let me introduce you to our new staff:

Dr. Tim Hart – Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment (replacing Dr. Kathy Frye)

James Hufford – HS Math (replacing Jason Lumpkin)

Kimberly Perry – HS Science (replacing Leanne Moorman)

Hillary Wagner – MS/HS Art (replacing Kerri Bram)

Josie Buckingham – MS/HS PE and Health (replacing James Denune)

I also want to share with you some other changes. In July, Steve Mofford retired from Felicity Schools. Steve served our district for 26 years. Steve’s work ethic and personality will truly be missed. If you get a chance, please thank Steve for all he has done for our students, staff and community. We also have changes in our transportation department. Brad Ellis will be assuming the transportation leadership duties with support from Shana Stevenson. Felicity Schools has entered into an agreement with TDG facilities management group. TDG will manage all parts of our facilities providing a significant savings ($30K/year) to our district. We would like to welcome Michael Ormes to Felicity who will be serving as our facilities coordinator.

Every summer I am amazed at how much time, sweat and energy our custodial team and our technology team put into getting our buildings ready for another school year.

Some important dates:

Aug 13 – First day for all staff – 7:30 a.m. breakfast in the Auditeria

Aug 15 – Open House - 6:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m.

Aug 19 – Professional learning day for staff– Orientation day for grade 5 and grade 9

Aug 20 – First day for students

The 2019-2020 school year is upon us; I know it is going to be a great one!
