Soar Like An Eagle at Thomas K. Finletter


To the Thomas K. Finletter Families and Community Members:

Welcome back to Thomas K. Finletter Academics Plus School!

The 2017-2018 school year will mark my fourth year as principal of Finletter and I anticipate an exciting year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of learning that promotes success and academic achievement.

At Finletter, our staff maintains a commitment to the achievement of every child.  We believe that children need access to a rigorous and challenging curriculum with rich experiences to engage them in collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication.  We believe in fostering a safe and nurturing environment for children to grow and learn. Working together with our parents, families, students, and staff of Finletter makes academic excellence a priority.  We take pride in our school community and our strong commitment to the success of all students.

At Finletter, we are dedicated to working conscientiously to continue the strong tradition of excellence for our students, and to work diligently with parents and faculty. We believe these efforts will create an atmosphere that promotes a learning community characterized by child centered instruction, academic excellence, trust, respect, community involvement, and communication.  Working together as a team, we will continue to foster a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment in which all Finletter students will learn at optimal levels and become responsible, contributing members of society!

Mrs. Tamara Edwards
