Message from the Superintendent

Dear Freddie family and friends:

As we wrap up another school year, I would like to thank everyone in the community for their continued support of our wonderful district. The last few weeks have been busy for our students as we wrapped up another school year. Following the Baccalaureate on Thursday night, on Friday we celebrated 97 seniors at the 146th Commencement of Fredericktown High School. 45 of our seniors plan to attend college, 39 will be joining the workforce, and 5 students will be enlisting in the military. The senior class also accumulated over $770,000 in scholarships. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these graduates!

As I write this letter, I would also like to mention our spring sports athletes. Our boy’s track team came in third in the KMAC and many athletes are also competing in the Regional competition tonight. Our girl’s track team won the KMAC and many athletes will also be competing in Regionals.

Our baseball team will play in the District Final at Olentangy Orange on May 25th at 5 PM vs Amanda-Clearcreek.

The Softball team will play in the Regional Final in Centerville on May 28th at 12 PM vs. Miami East. For ticket information, please visit our District Facebook page. Good luck to all of our participants!

I will continue to serve as our Superintendent until July 31st, so please contact my office for an appointment if there are any issues you would like to discuss.
