The 2018-19 school year is almost upon us, and I look forward to the upcoming year of learning, growth, and change. At FHS our core purpose is to ignite a passion for learning so that all students thrive at school and succeed in life. All our programs and activities revolve around this purpose.
Our $19 million construction project continues to move forward at a fast pace. The cinder block walls of our new gym are almost complete, and we are enjoying the deferred maintenance upgrades to our south parking lot and HVAC systems. The targeted completion date for the entire project is August 15, 2019, so we have diligently planned for the inconveniences and close quarters the upcoming school year will bring. Students and staff have rallied thus far to accommodate the construction noises and minor disruptions; we will continue to make do. In addition to the nuts and bolts of construction, we have exciting planning ahead of us as we create the innovative classroom and learning spaces in our new square footage.
Our school theme this year is “Building on Excellence,” which of course carries a construction theme. This theme also reminds us that while we have a lot to be proud of in our programs and successes at Flathead High School, we should always look for ways to innovate and expand on the things we do well.
I’m proud to be a part of this wonderful high school community. Flathead High School continues its tradition of excellence and will move forward into the future.
