Buses driving the neighborhood filled with teachers and staff members signaled the early signs of Finneytown Local School District’s return to a new school year. It was a gorgeous but hot summer evening with music from the marching band bringing families from their homes as FLSD’s students and families were welcomed back to school by teachers and staff visiting the neighborhoods. Buses loaded with FLSD teachers, staff, and band members fanned out through different parts of the district as they walked the neighborhood streets, knocking on doors of families, and welcoming students back to school with mini gift bags. Following the the staff tour, the community gathered at Finneytown Secondary Campus for a Back to School Bash that included a special performance of the marching band, hot dogs and snacks, Kona Ice, games, a special visit from the Wildcat, and lots of connections made and rekindled between staff and families. Welcome to the new school year at Finneytown!
