Hello FSDB students, staff, families, alumni and community members.

It is so wonderful to have all of our students back on the campus this year and to also welcome many new students, families, and staff to our FSDB community.

I have so enjoyed the time I have had with all of you. This school year has already been filled with athletic events, parent engagement workshops, school activities, dances, meetings, recognition celebrations, and the opportunity for my family and I to travel to state expos. Having everyone together and creating memories has brought me the greatest joy.

I am truly blessed to be part of an extraordinary school community that is innovative, caring, respectful, and collaborative. We have faced challenges, creatively solved problems, and succeeded together.

Thank you for your continued dedication and perseverance which has made our many successes possible. Every member of our FSDB community should be proud of the work we do.

Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy, peaceful and joyous holiday season.

From my family to yours, all my best for an amazing 2022 year.


Tracie C. Snow
