Fall, 2017

Dear Freeport High School Families,

We have had a great start to the school year and are happy to have our wonderful students filling the classrooms and hallways.  We feel incredibly fortunate to have our FHS building renovation and expansion project completed, and our students are enjoying our new and updated spaces every day.  It’s exciting to observe the progress of our Track and Field Project, as it is making more progress each and every day.  The fall teams unfortunately won’t be able to access the track and field quite yet, but we’re looking forward to hosting our first athletic events there soon.  

Here are some important calendar dates for the next few weeks:

  • Thursday, September 28th from 6-7pm is an informational meeting about college admissions led by the FHS Guidance Department.
  • Wednesday, October 4th is mid-quarter grade checks.
  • Friday, October 6th is a Professional Day for FHS staff and there is no school for students.
  • No school on Monday, October 10th.
  • Wednesday, October 11th is the PSAT test for all sophomores and is optional for juniors.
  • Thursday, October 12th, the Maine Judicial Supreme Court will hold court at Freeport High School and our students will have the opportunity to observe the judicial process first hand.
  • Thursday, October 12th and Thursday, Oct. 26th are our Parent-Teacher conferences.
  • Friday, October 13th is our FHS Fall Spirit Rally and the beginning of Homecoming Week.
  • Saturday, October 14th is our FHS Homecoming Dance at the FHS cafeteria from 7-10pm.

  • Friday, November 3rd is the end of Quarter 1.

Detailed information for each event is available in our FHS daily announcements.

During the course of the school year, there are multiple ways to stay informed about your student’s progress as well as FHS events:

  • Sign up for the FHS Daily Announcements.
  • Set up a parent account on PowerSchool and check it regularly
    • Our tech department can always answer any questions that you may have about how to use PowerSchool and we will be hosting PowerSchool set-up and support sessions during Parent/Teacher conferences in October.
  • Email teachers directly for any questions or information you need
  • All teachers have weekly office hours when students are able to connect with them for support.  Check the RSU5 website under Freeport High School for the schedule for teacher office hours.  This schedule is also posted in the Main Office.
  • Follow Ms. Gulko and Mr. Mellon on Twitter and Instagram!
    • @Freeport_HS for both sites
  • Join the Freeport High School PTSO!  Look for information on the daily announcements

We hope that families feel comfortable and welcome at Freeport High School and we hope that you contact our staff at any time.  We are looking forward to a great year and celebrating student success.

All the best,

 

Jen Gulko, Principal
