Welcome to my last Principal’s Message of this school year. It has been an exciting, event-filled, sometimes trying, successful, and most blessed year!  Our 41st graduation takes place tonight at 7:00 p.m., and school is dismissed for the summer tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. Please remember that Friday IS a half-day, and that there is no Eagles’ Nest.

We were visited today by Mayor Joshua Garcia (my wife’s former student). He is touring each school in the city to meet students and to discuss our safety and security procedures, in the wake of the Texas tragedy. He was engaging with the students whom he met, and he fielded a ton of questions.

While yesterday was our last Wednesday chapel gathering, Pastor will wrap up the school year with a closing chapel service tomorrow at 9 a.m. Join us if you can.

As I mentioned last week, expect some dress code changes for the Fall. That notification and other information will be sent home by early July. There will also be a few new faces on the Faculty in the Fall. It is bittersweet to say farewell and Godspeed to both kindergarten teacher, Miss Sarah Valente, and third grade teacher, Mrs. Tiffany Levesque. Miss Valente is leaving to accept an administrative position at her church, and Mrs. Levesque has opted to stay home to raise her newborn daughter. Ladies, we will miss you both. We are already blessed, however, to announce that two former FLCS teachers will re-join us in September.  Mrs. Robin Dolbow will be staying on full time in third grade, where she has been subbing, and Mrs. Keli KroK, who taught third grade a few years back, will be our new kindergarten teacher. We welcome them both back to FLCS.

Speaking of bittersweet, it is both my pleasure and my sad duty to wish Mr. Kenneth Peterson all the best in his upcoming “re-retirement.”

After a long, accomplished career in public school teaching, Mr. Peterson ”un-retired” in 2012 and joined FLCS as a part-time science teacher. The following year he added history classes to his schedule, and he has been a stalwart in our middle school ever since. Dependable, professional, knowledgeable, and caring: that’s Mr. Peterson. I will miss him dearly. Thank you, Ken, for your unselfish service to our students. And, Go, Red Sox!

As the school year comes to a close, I want to, one last time, say THANK YOU, PARENTS! Thank you for entrusting us with your precious children. Thank you for your sacrifices, your commitment to the school, your many kindnesses to the teachers, the staff, and to me. It is indeed a blessing to be called Principal.

Have a safe, enjoyable, and blessed summer. I look forward to seeing many of you in the Fall. God bless you all!

In His Service, By His Grace,

Bob Lastowski

Principal
