    The Falcon

    All the happenings at Flynn a Marzano Academy 

    Hello Flynn Falcon Families,

     

    Hello Flynn Falcons!

     

    With the month of August officially in the books, it is safe to say the '21-'22 school year is underway. The start to every year is always busy. Between first days of school, Back-to-School Night, beginning-of-year testing, re-establishing classroom and school routines, and of course the inevitable kinks with arrival and dismissal, there is more to get done than time to do it. Luckily for Flynn, our strong and organized school community navigated the past few weeks very well and I'm happy to report we are at our cruising speed coming into the Labor Day weekend.

     

    Looking forward to September, I dare say things won't be slowing down. Knowing that success is better guaranteed when we set and communicate goals, we believe it is important to incorporate goal-setting into our daily school life. Toward this end, we have some lofty school-wide goals this year with the biggest being a High Reliability Schools Level 3 certification. In addition, each child will also be setting personal learning goals with his or her teacher too. I encourage you to ask your child about these goals and keep that conversation going throughout the school year. You can also track your student's goal completion inside of Empower and with teachers during Parent/Teacher Conferences in October.

     

    Looking beyond academic goal-setting, this month we will also be kicking off Rachel's Challenge with a school-wide assembly. Each year Flynn recommits to Rachel's Challenge because we hold the belief that Kindness is the foundation to a healthy school life. We will be continuing our Kindness Links this year with a school goal of 10,000 links! Once again, a lofty but I believe attainable goal.

     

    Finally, Chartwells, the district's food service provider, may not be issuing monthly lunch menus, opting for weekly menus instead. We will be sure to post each week's menu on the front page of our school website, along with all other important school information, so be sure to check it out often.

     

    OK, more to come but for now, welcome back Flynn Falcons! I am excited for the school year ahead and anticipate it will be one of our finest to date. We appreciate that you chose Flynn to entrust your child's education to, and we take that responsibility seriously.

     

    Let's have a great year Flynn!

     

     

    Dr. Kosena
