Principal’s Welcome

Dear Finland Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I hope that your summer was full of the perfect combination of rest and excitement.  As the calendar continues to turn, it is already time to begin to look forward to another year together as Finland Elementary Eagles.

Our focus for this year will be continuing to foster our Eagle Pride.  Last year, our students established our Eagle Pride Expectations - Be Kind, Be Respectful, Do Your Best, and Show the Love.  This year, our goal is to continue to fulfill these expectations while growing our children as positive and productive individuals.  We will continue the balance of academic and character education through rigorous instruction, high expectations, and appropriate support for every student.  

Our staff is committed to providing our students and families with the best service possible.  They have put in countless hours throughout summer in order to continue to find new ways to push our students to their fullest potential.  Raising our youth, however, goes far beyond the reach of our staff, as the partnership with our families will be essential for reaching the goals set forth for our children.  I look forward to Finland Elementary continuing to bridge the school and community through the continuation of our Watch D.O.G.S. and Girls on the Run programs, as well as the introduction of several new and exciting opportunities for our school and community to work together.  

It is with full confidence that I predict this will be a great year for our school, our students, and our community, and I look forward to being a part of the progress we will continue to make.

Let's have an outstanding year,

Sean Flynn
