Board of Education Regular Meeting will be help on July 15, 2024. An agenda will be posted by July 12th.

Perhaps you’ve seen or heard these words before.
 
They are often used in predicting success.
 
The popular maxim goes like this:
 
“The height of someone’s floor in life is defined by their skills. The height of someone’s ceiling in life is defined by their character.”

Now, as much as I believe the maxim to be true –

I’m proud to tell you our grads in the FHS Class of 2023 are on their way to redefining it and taking it to an even higher level.

High School Principal JoLynn Clark, our teachers and staff at the high school, and everyone in our entire FSD school family, including parents and community, once again made sure this would be the case.

Our grads are well-prepared and ready to make their mark.

And I look forward to sharing more about the FHS Class of 2023 next week as we head into Commencement on Thursday, June 1, at 8 pm on our Football Field.

For today – let me try to convey a sense of the amazing spirit of the Class of 2023 (132 strong) demonstrated in this past week’s graduation-related events.

Last Sunday afternoon we gathered together for the annual non-school sponsored Baccalaureate.

It featured an encouraging ecumenical service with clergy from a number of local churches and parishes. It was held at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church and the worship program cover art was created by FHS Senior Tiffany Keller. Thank you to all involved!

On Sunday evening we recognized the academic achievements and extra-curricular accomplishments of the Class of 2023.

Our Honors Night was quite a night. More than $172,000 in scholarships and grants were awarded to a wide range of seniors. This is a tribute to our grads, of course – but it is also a tribute to our community who always steps up to support our students and their future endeavors. 
 
On Monday, our graduating Seniors and FHS staff enjoyed the traditional cookout lunch.

There was a class photo session, with photos taken by Scott Wenzel (land photo) and John Cook (drone pic).
 
Seniors will then receive print copies of these photos later in their graduation portfolios. 
 
After the photo session, seniors enjoyed a buffet of brats and cheeseburgers, baked beans, fruit and veggie options, and desserts.
 
The Frankenmuth Chamber of Commerce provided each senior with a commemorative t-shirt with special message and handed those out at the event. 
 
Games and activities were provided, including cornhole, volleyball, soccer, and more.
 
Tuesday, May 23, was the last day of school for our seniors. (Another annual milestone!)

The of high school kicked off with the annual Senior Sendoff breakfast, complete with giant cinnamon rolls – an FHS delicacy!
 
White tees are the couture du jour on the last day, and sharpie signatures abound, which allowed seniors to create a treasured class keepsake.
 
The day ended with the class’ song “Good ol’ Days” by Macklemore, and featured Kesha as he rang the final bell and distributed confetti poppers!
 
The 2023 Senior Mural was presented, too!

Seniors in Advanced Art worked together to create this year’s senior mural. The Eagle artists involved in the project include (L-R) Aiden Elliott, Nathan Hochthanner, Jaimee Anderson, Madisyn Woolworth, Kennedy Sutherland, and Emma Kribs.
 
The mural was signed by the members of the Class of 2023, and will be hung in the hallway, adding to the collection of senior class murals that began in 2012.
 
From these brief graduation snippets, I hope you can see why I was reminded of the “high floor, high ceiling” maxim.
 
The sky’s truly the limit for our Class of 2023!
 
Thanks for all you did to help fuel their journey!
