The 2014-15 school year at FISD was kicked-off with our annual Ice Cream Social, Friday night at Eschenburg Field. The stands were packed with proud parents, family, community, students and staff, while the field was crowded with students and staff representing a variety of extra-curricular activities including athletics, band, cheer, color guard, dance and ROTC.
Participation in extracurricular activities provides students opportunities to learn about teamwork, discipline, healthy competition, success and loss - all of which are valuable life lessons. In addition, it provides an opportunity for parent involvement, which is critical to the success of not only our students’ academic achievement, but is also a factor in effective campuses. Your attendance at an extra-curricular activity shows support for our students, our schools and our district.
The athletic booster club coordinated the event with help from FHS staff. The emcee of the social was Jay Tope of SA Sports, during which water was donated by Mark Brown with State Farm, and after all introductions were made, ice cream was served in cups donated by McCoys. Athletes, cheerleaders and dance team donated ice cream. Band students donated the sodas and parents volunteered their time to serve the ice cream floats to all in attendance. This is the perfect example of the kind of teamwork and partnerships needed throughout the school year to ensure success for our FISD students.
Thanks to all of our Floresville Family – students, staff, parents and community, for working to make the Ice Cream Social a huge success. I look forward to working with all of you throughout the 2014-15 school year. Your involvement makes a positive difference in Floresville ISD. Working together, FISD students will be prepared for a prosperous life.
