Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

Greetings Colonels!   It is my pleasure to welcome you to William Fleming High School for the 2019 - 2020 school year.  I look forward to this school year and the opportunity to work with so many outstanding young people who will become part of the Colonel legacy of academic, athletic, and civic excellence. 

On behalf of our faculty and staff, we hope you had a safe and enjoyable summer.  Help me welcome Ms. Jeanie Dixon to our Administrative Team as Dean of Students.  Our faculty, staff, and administrators are eager to provide students an educational experience in a caring and positive school climate.  William Fleming High School experienced great success this past school year.  We will increase our expectations utilizing the theme “Colonels – Leading the Way.” 

The faculty, staff, and administration spent the summer planning for a successful school year.  We still have much work to do and look forward to a year filled with student achievements through strong teaching and learning, strong communication, and strong relationships.

All ninth grade parents and students, or students new to William Fleming High School, are invited to orientation Friday, August 16, 2019, from 8:45 a.m. until 11:45 a.m.  Transportation will be provided.  During this time, you will have the opportunity to meet the teachers, visit classrooms, and take a tour of the building. 

Business Days to pay student fees are Monday, July 29, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and Friday, August 3, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.  Student fees are $30.00.  The fee covers the cost of printing/postage for report cards, newsletters, surveys, student handbooks, lockers, and some class activities.  It is recommended that fees are paid on an annual basis to avoid accumulating the cost at the end of four years.  Student fees may also be paid during orientation.

Our Annual Back-to-School Day will be Thursday, August 15, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

The Back-to-School Extravaganza will take place Saturday, August 17, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.  This event will take place in the cafeteria at William Fleming High School.

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 20, 2019.  Students are permitted to enter the building at 8:15 a.m. and school ends at 3:30 p.m.  Instruction for all students begins promptly at 8:40 a.m.  

I look forward to another exciting year.

Colonel Pride!!
