Message from the Superintendent
A Letter from the Superintendent to the Trojan Nation
February 3, 2018
I am happy to report that we have had a smooth beginning to the second semester. I also hope that our transition from paper to electronic report cards has gone smoothly for you as well. Please let us know if there have been any issues.
Speaking of moving away from paper to an electronic format, we are in the beginning phases of developing an electronic version of the FOCUS. We still plan to send a paper FOCUS to everyone in our community at the end of the school year and the beginning of the following school year, but the FOCUS we normally send out in January/February will now be done electronically.
We are excited about this change to an electronic FOCUS because you will receive it not just mid-year, but a smaller electronic FOCUS will be sent out every other week or so. This will keep you up to date in real time on all the great things happening in our school district.
Our efforts to communicate with you on our school district is enhanced by our Facebook page where we currently have over 3,000 followers. If you haven’t yet done so, I encourage you to like the Fruitport Community Schools Facebook page for even more good news about our school district.
Finally, our website contains important information as well. So between the electronic FOCUS you will receive in your email, liking our Facebook page, or exploring our website, you should have tons of information and news about student activities, student accomplishments, new programs, etc.
Of special note with these communications will be a steady stream of updates on our upcoming high school construction project. Remember that bids for this project are due next week, bids will be awarded at the February Board of Education meeting, and construction begins in late March.
There is so much happening and so much to look forward to here at Fruitport Community Schools. We want you to be informed every step of the way as we strive to be the beacon of educational excellence on the lakeshore!
Bob Szymoniak, Superintendent
