The Holidays are upon us and we have been working very hard to improve student achievement. We are ready to submit our CDIP plan for the improvement of our district. We have all stakeholders involved, and feel we have fairly represented our community needs. Many things have been happening in our district. Please take the tme to view our plan and offer suggestions for improvement. It is posted on this website.
We now have an after-school program named B3 or Bulldogs Beyond the Bell, for grades 3-8, from 2:45PM to 5:45PM. Students start with a healthy snack, migrate to homework help, and then are involved in a Core Content activity. We have been very pleased with the attendance and activities thus far. Kim Jobe and Ann Cooley are in charge of this wonderful program and will accept volunteers with an approved background check. See Kim Farmer at the board office if you need to have a background check done.
Another activity is spearheaded by Kim Farmer and Tracy Pulley (Student Council Sponsors for FHS) is afternoon chess. This activity occurs on Monday afternoon each week, and is still growing. We so much appreciate these ladies taking time to listen to the needs of the students of Fulton High School.
Allison Butner just finished our first Dinner Theatre for Fulton Independent Schools, and was a fantastic production. I believe this is one of the best kept secrets in Kentucky, and KUDOS to the students for their dedication and time (Thank you parents) to a nearly sold out event for 2 nights. I am currently working with MSU and KDE to form a new career pathway in the Arts and Humanities Category at Fulton Independent School, as well as other schools in Kentucky. I am not sure if this will be implemented, but I think it is a perfect avenue for some students.
In January, we will be having bowling for grades 9-12 on the second Wednesday of each month. The teams formed will bowl against Central Office Perrsonnel and each other. Students will be transported from the high school to the bowling alley in Fulton by Transit, and bowl from 3:00PM until 4:15PM. Students need to be picked up no later than 4:30PM. There will be no cost to students.
Ground and Pound with free coffee at McDonalds will increase from one time per month to two times per month, on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday's. I invite the public and staff to join me from 6:30AM to 7:30AM for updates on the Fulton Independent School District to find out how your tax dollars are spent. It is an informal gathering that provides information and/or questions and answers about the Fulton Independent School District.
During the winter months we may be faced with school closings, or early dismissals. We will strive to inform parents, students, and district staff as soon as possible. Parents will be notified with ONE CALL NOW, so it is imperative to have your correct phone number. If your phone number needs updating, please let the school know. School Closings will be announced no later than 6:30AM, and will also reported by WPSD. As a general rule, if the Transit Authority is closed for inclement weather, the school will also be closed. Please make sure you stay alert during these winter months, as there may be a need to revise the decision later in the day because of changes in the weather conditions.
