Whether you are a new or a returning family to our school community, I hope you are getting ready to join us for an adventurous school year full of fun and learning at Francis Scott Key.
We begin this year with a leadership shift at FSK and I am so proud to step up as your principal and continue serving this supportive, collaborative and compassionate community. While new to the role of principal this year, I am eager to continue fostering strong relationships with parents, guardians and families while supporting our students and staff in our efforts to maintain innovative and positive learning experiences for each and every FSK student.
Our teachers and staff have worked tirelessly to prepare schedules, routines, procedures, curriculum and instructional models that will support academic success for all our FSK students. Our primary goal is to ensure student proficiency in core academic subjects and social emotional areas. We will continue to engage our students in Project Based Learning through the Deeper Learning philosophy and strategies we immersed ourselves in more than five years ago. Our instructional philosophy and STEAM curriculum have aligned our school vision and SFUSD’s mission to foster the development of 21st century skills and the Graduate Profile. Our Restorative Practices approach and nurturing of strong social emotional skills such as growth mindset, self-efficacy, self-management and social awareness will continue to support our students in becoming critical thinkers, active problem solvers, collaborative communicators and responsible citizens. We are confident that our students at FSK will continue to thrive and have a positive and productive school year!
I look forward to continuing our collaboration and providing your children with an effective, positive and engaging educational experience. As always, we look forward to working together as a caring and compassionate learning community. We will always put the best interests of our students at the center of our purpose.
My door is always open. Please feel free to contact me via email at any time. Thank you for your time, support and kindness always.
Ms. Page, Principal
