Welcome Back Frick Families!
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. We are excited to help develop the minds and
hearts of young scholars this coming year.
We have a number of exciting things we will accomplish. We want to prepare our students effectively
for both college and career and will use project-based learning to help develop
the skills students will need for success today and in the future.
Our expectation for all students is daily attendance:
everyday, every class, every period, on-time.
Students who miss more than 10 days of school are 20% less likely to
graduate high school and have a 25% less chance of ever enrolling in college,
and our goal is for all students to have successful futures in the college and
career of their choice. Making that
happen starts in middle school with attending school daily.
