Snow Make-up Day
On Wednesday, Jan. 20, FHSD had our first snow day of the 2015-16 school year. This snow day will be made up Wednesday, May 18. If additional snow days are needed, please refer to the student academic calendar for make-up dates.
The ride to the top wasn’t easy for Matt Wilhelm. In fact, he never even thought to try tricks on a bike until a bully refused to let him race at the local track. Since switching from racing to BMX flatland, he has never looked back. Matt has won three X Games medals, two national championships, and a silver medal from the World Championships.
However the road to victory was full of crashes, spills, and adversity for Matt. After eight years of practice he finally qualified for the X Games only to finish a disappointing last place. Refusing to give up, Matt trained even harder, which molded him into the person he is today.
Eemarkably, Matt won many of these competitions while attending college on a music scholarship. After graduating magna cum laude from Millikin University he now devotes himself fully to his craft, traveling to far away places such as Korea, Portugal, Brazil, and Japan just to name a few.
During the off-season of 2005 Matt thought it might be fun to give back to the community and share his tricks and experiences with school children. Each year the program has grown to include more schools, and last year Matt performed at over 300 different schools. His message of perseverance resonates with both kids and educators alike. He also speaks extensively about bullying and has a powerful personal story to share with students.
As a leadership school, we place a high value on goal setting and celebrating when we achieve our goals! This helps us “Begin with the end in Mind” (Habit #2) Here are Warren’s 2 WIGs (Wildly Important Goals) that we have set for this year:
- 90% of students will meet their individual weekly reading minutes goal.
- 90% of students will meet their individual math fluency goal.
Reading and Math are great goal setting opportunities in which our students can “Begin with the end in Mind”. Each student sets a reading and math goal which coincides with the classroom goal which impacts the school wide goal. We need your help in achieving this objective. Please have a conversation with your child(ren) about the importance of reading and practicing their math facts, then help them keep track of their progress.
We need your help in achieving our goals! You can watch us track our grade level progress in the hallways throughout the school on our grade level score boards and our overall school progress outside of the main office on the school scoreboard! Thank you for your support.
