To the Fairfield Union Students, Families, Staff and Community:
As we approach the beginning of a new school year, I am amazed at how each year feels unique and different while still having that sense of something familiar. The excitement in the air is palpable, and the nervous energy that comes with the first day of school is building in all of us. More than ever, I think we are all ready for the start of a school year that more closely resembles times of old.
I am happy to report our students showed tremendous growth academically last year, and by all accounts, we have more than closed the learning gaps that were caused by COVID. Our students and staff worked extremely hard to get to this point, and now it is time for our district to take that next big step in our classrooms. We will not rest until Fairfield Union is the pinnacle of academic excellence in Ohio.
The 2021 – 2022 school year also brought outstanding achievements outside the classroom for our district. Our high school girls’ soccer team made the Regional finals for the first time in school history, the middle school Power of the Pen team qualified for the state tournament, our Agriculture department saw 15 FFA members receive state degrees, and we all enjoyed an incredible night of music during our 2nd Alumni Band Night! The 2021 – 2022 school year was magical in many ways, but now it is time to turn our sights to new beginnings.
As we embark on the journey that will be the 2022 – 2023 school year, we are once again focused on things like pep rallies, concerts, musicals, athletic events, state degrees as well as achieving academic excellence. We are busy preparing for a student-centered school year that will be full of great experiences and opportunities for students to grow their Falcon Pride. It is time to turn the page on some of the most challenging times in the history of education and return to the Fairfield Union we all know and love. I hope everyone has a great school year, and never forget, it is a GREAT
day YEAR to be a Falcon!
