Dear Florence High School Families,

The faculty and I would like to welcome you to an exciting year at Florence High School. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with a fabulous staff and faculty, student body, and community here in Florence ISD. As with any new situation, there will be some changes in practice and procedure which will help maximize the academic and extra-curricular environment at our school.

Consistent and clear communication between parents and our faculty is essential to student success at Florence High School. Through the use of school and teacher webpages, newsletters, parent meetings, and other opportunities we hope to develop and maintain a partnership with each and every family for the benefit of the student. It is important for our students to get off to a strong start, so start the communication early.

Our theme this year is “Stampeding Toward Excellence!” This theme emphasizes the idea of critical mass focused on a total application of power and energy toward the goal of academic and extra-curricular excellence. The staff at Florence High School will work hard, every day, to create a positive and welcoming school climate for our students and school community. We can and will achieve excellence at FHS if we all stampede together toward that goal.
