Principal's Corner

  • August, 2019 --  Now that we have come to the end of the summer vacation, it is time to begin a new journey.  As with many journeys, plans have to be made.  Fortunately, many of the plans for the upcoming year have already been made, and much of the work has already been completed.  However, there is still much to be accomplished.  Now is the time to start on our journey.

    I would like to take this opportunity to personally welcome all faculty members and students back to school.  I hope that all of your have enjoyed your vacation and are eager to get started. As hectic as the first days of school often seem, they are very important days.  There are schedules to finalize, forms to complete, and many other tasks to be completed.  I know that with the teamwork of our helpful staff, dedicated students, and supportive parents that these first days of school will go smoothly. I encourage all students to keep a positive attitude, prepared and ready to learn.

    I encourage each student to get involved in the many activities and extra curricular organizations as well.  Research shows that students who are active in the ongoings of the school tend to do better academically than their counterparts.  In addition, I also encourage each parent to be involved in the ongoings of the school.  It is very important that you familiarize yourself with the new student handbook which is available on our website.  You may also request a hard copy at the office.

    As we begin our journey, I challenge each student and teacher as I have challenged myself to set your goals high for the coming year.  If each of us pursues our goals, then the sky is the limit for Florien High School

     

    Eddie Jones, Jr.
