The Fergus Falls Public Schools 2019-2020 school year is officially underway amid blue skies and glorious sunshine! It is exciting to have students back in the building again and we look forward to a great year ahead.

“Can our school be so welcoming, so inviting, and so comfortable that every person who walks through our doors believes they are going to have an amazing experience?” from How to Create a Culture of Achievement in Your School and Classroom by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey and Ian Pumpian. As a staff, each of us is committed to creating an environment that will support all students in reaching their potential. That means that we will establish high expectations, hold each other and our students accountable, and provide the necessary support and guidance to students. We will also celebrate our successes.
