When you consider everything that happens the first week of school, what all it entails and how many people it involves – it is a huge team effort. I am excited, I am honored, and I am thankful for the opportunity to start my 22nd year as an FISD educator, where we are fortunate to have a team made up of FISD staff, parents, students, community members and businesses who are all working together to make sure our students are future ready.
I just learned that three FHS Seniors, Justin Martinez, Marcos, Diaz, and Nathaniel Bell, who were enrolled in the Aerospace Academy at Alamo Colleges last year and completed a summer internship at CPS Energy in the Power Generation department as Instrumentation & Control Technician interns, will each receive a $2,500 college scholarship under the CPS Energy SITE program. They have also been given an opportunity for a second internship as I & C Tech interns this coming summer under the CPS Energy SITE program. I am so very excited for these young men and what their future holds!
This kind of opportunity cannot be credited to one person. It includes the efforts of administrators, counselors, teachers, transportation staff, parents, businesses, and higher education all working together with one common goal – to prepare our students for a prosperous life. If that isn’t a great example of teamwork, I don’t know what it is.
Teamwork will drive our FISD success and I believe we are off to a great start for the 2016-17 school year!
