Dear Floyd Light Community,
The Falcon staff welcomes you to Floyd Light Middle School! This year we will continue the high quality education and inviting environment you have heard about or already experienced. Since taking this position, I have heard nothing but great things about Floyd Light. We understand that middle school is truly a transition time for your student with unique needs – he/she is not an older elementary student or a junior high school student. We take these middle school needs into consideration when developing all of our policies and procedures.
We offer a rigorous academic program that includes language arts, social studies, science, and math. In addition, we are extremely proud of our elective program. While many middle schools are eliminating their program offerings, we continue to offer high-level performance-based and production-based classes. In addition, for students not on grade level, we required targeted intervention classes. In other words, we ensure growth for each and every one of our students.
We encourage all our students to get involved in co-curricular activities. Students involved in these activities generally do better in school. Music, drama, student government, and/or athletics are a great way for students to establish a deeper relationship with their classmates and staff. This relationship makes them feel a part of something bigger than themselves – an essential learning for middle school students.
Finally, our students can only reach their potential with families’ active involvement at Floyd Light. Families are our student’s first and most important teachers. Even though most students beg their families to not get involved, it is important that they do! The stronger the home/school relationship, the better chance our students have to succeed.
Do not hesitate contacting me with any clarifications or questions. We are very excited for another outstanding year here at Floyd Light!
Doug Pease, Principal
