Welcome to a new school year at Fredericktown Elementary School! We are excited to have so many new students joining us. We also have a few new teachers this year, Miss Kaylin Rex, K-3 Intensive Needs Intervention Specialist and Mrs. Audrey Vanhouten-Baker, 5th Grade Intervention Specialist.
There are many new things happening in schools across Ohio. You may have read about the new Third Grade Reading Guarantee, the Common Core, Online assessments, and new evaluation systems for teachers and administrators. There are many people across Ohio working to make our schools better.
Here at Fredericktown Elementary School, we’re hard at work, too. Our district Mission Statement: Every day, everyone working together to learn and improve, means that we all need to come to school every day ready to learn new things and improve on past learning and practice. This applies to staff members as well as students.
Technology at Fredericktown Schools is changing the way we do business in many ways. Test scores, progress reports, attendance records, and communication may not look the same as in the past. Our district tries to balance record keeping and communication methods so that each family has access to necessary information.
We are very thankful to you for entrusting us with the education of the district’s children. It is an awesome and formidable task. We do take it seriously. Underlining what we do every day is the question, “Are we educating the children for their future or for our past?”
Please call the school office if you have questions or concerns. We welcome your comments, presence, and e-mails. It is always our goal to work together with you to ensure that the children are safe and receive the best education that the district can provide.
Miguel Thompson, Principal
