  • BACK TO SCHOOL 2017

    Falcon Flyer Welcome back to another exciting year at Flambeau! As September 5th is just around the corner, I would like to welcome both new and returning families to the 2017-2018 school year—it will be great! Although I am going into my eighth school year here at Flambeau, I am excited for my role as superintendent. I couldn’t ask for a better community and school to begin my tenure and raise my family.

    Flambeau welcomes Mr. Craig Cahoon as our new 6-12 Principal and Mrs. Brianna Edington as our new School Psychologist and Special Education Director. Mr. Cahoon comes to us from Colby while Mrs. Edington has been with our district part-time through CESA as our School Psychologist. Please feel free to stop to introduce yourself and welcome them both to our district.

    As you review the upcoming school calendar, you will once again notice that there are monthly curriculum days set aside for teachers to collaborate and resume their work in aligning curriculum 4YK-12th grades. Through this continuous process, we will begin to finalize subject areas and make curriculum maps available to the public.

    The Flambeau School Board and I will continue our work with our strategic road map, building off our mission and vision statements as well as core values in our district. Once our work is complete at the district level, building goals will be developed for 2017-2018.

    Another item I’d like to draw your attention to is the Flambeau Forever Foundation. This foundation was established last year, and was able to enhance and enrich programs for our students through the grants they distributed. This group of dedicated community members will continue their hard work this year to provide resources to students in academics, activities, and athletics. Please feel free to contact us at the school if you would like more information, or would like to donate. Even the smallest donation can have a huge impact on our students’ lives!

    Once again, we pledge to continue working on our goals of improving student achievement. It is about coming together and working together to offer the best educational opportunities available to our children.

    Let’s have a great 2017-2018 School Year!

    Erica Schley, District Administrator
