In the event of Inclement Weather and School Closings, an ONE CALL NOW message will be sent out to all parents who have working numbers in the Student Information section of Infinite Campus. School Closings and late announcements will also be called in to WPSD. If there is no school, the call will be made by 5:30 AM. Sometimes the number shows up resembling a toll free call. If you do not wish to be contacted, get in touch with the Board of Education at 270-472-1553. Please keep all phone numbers current in case of emergencies.
Welcome Back to School Students and Staff! Beda Blue, our new bulldog mascot also welcomes everyone. Special thanks to Jennifer Caldwell and Dr. Harry Ward for providing continual care and services for her, and Smith Construction for purchasing her for the district. Remember to keep up with her on our webpage, facebook page and the Fulton Leader. We also intend to have her in classrooms for various activities with students and at sporting events.
A new school year presents new opportunities for various beginnings-new classes, new faces, new courses and often new materials. I hope this summer has given you time to accept these various changes at Fulton Independent School.
Newness alone, however, cannot produce transformation. We ourselves must be willing to be caught up in the rebirth that is possible with each new school year. Starting a new year allows us to plan and design new strategies and implement new ideas. Students and parents are always anxious to find out what is happening in the classroom, so I hope to improve communication about the special activities that occur within our district and classrooms.
I am proud of being recognized as a "High Progress" district; however, I am not complacent with the status quo. My goal is the same as when I started four years ago...to be a Top Fifty School for College and Career Readiness within five years and to help students realize their dreams. Scores will be released in the fall for the previous school year, and we are anxious to find out how we did.
We have a wonderful school district because our staff has a common goal-to do what is best for students-and are always searching for ways to achieve that goal. We want to welcome each and everyone to become a partner in this educational year. Please feel free to communicate with me if you are puzzled, or have questions about the curriculum or activities that we have to offer.
We are glad to have you with us this year, and we want to assure you that we will do our best to help your child experience academic, social and emotional growth. With your help and cooperation, this should be an excellent school year.
Tamara Smith, Superintendent
