Dear Firelands Elementary School Families,

On behalf of the staff at Firelands Elementary School, we are happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.  We recognize that in order to be successful in school our children need support from both home and school.  We know a strong partnership will make a great difference in your child’s education.  As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.  We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that our boys and girls attend school daily and arrives on time ready to learn.

Please consider joining our remarkable Parent Teacher Group as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s programs.  PTG is a wonderful way for our parents to stay informed about school-wide events while making connections with other Falcon families.

In addition, join us in welcoming our new Firelands Elementary School Staff!

Class lists will be posted at the end of the day on Wednesday, August 21. A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2019-2020 school year. Careful consideration was given to generate academically and socially balanced classrooms.  Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level. We appreciate your positive message to our boys and girls to have a great start of the school year with the potential to meet new friends and to learn from our dedicated staff in their new grade level.

Our Open House is scheduled for Monday, August 26.  Please visit kindergarten, first, and second grade classrooms from 5:00-5:45.  Families with children in grades three through five will be visiting the classrooms from 5:45-6:30.  This altered schedule will help to minimize the crowding in the building and the parking lot. On Open House night, parents may bring in children’s school supplies and meet our teachers. Stop by the library to meet our specialist teachers; Mrs. Woods – Music, Mrs. Proehl – Art, Mr. Horne- Physical Education, and Mr. Krieger – Technology.  They will be available to help you access Power School for trouble-free connection to your child’s school information.  Mr. Sayler and Mrs. Baumann will also be in the building to answer any questions regarding transportation and food services.

The Firelands School District is excited to inform our parents/guardians about our communication platform - Google Classroom.  The purpose of Google Classroom is to provide a two-way communication between the classroom teacher and home.  The staff has been trained and will use this tool to communicate classroom activities, upcoming classroom events, and other important information happening within the classroom.  

Parents will be invited to join their teacher’s link to view the google site.  If you are unable to access your child’s google classroom, please contact your child’s teacher for further assistance.

Then follow the link for the Firelands OneView Portal at you cannot access the Oneview account please know that a letter will be sent to the residential parent with directions.
