Meet the Teacher Night

Letter from the Principal

Good afternoon Gopher parents!

This is Mrs. Potter, the principal at Florence K-8 welcoming you to the 2017-2018 school year.  We are eager to start the year.

I wanted to reach out to you and remind you of our upcoming Meet the Teacher Night.  Please join us on Thursday, July 20th, 2017 from 6-7 pm.  K-5th grade students can report to their homeroom classroom and middle school students can get their schedules in the gym.

If you did not get a letter over the summer telling you who your child's teacher is, please call the office at 520-866-3540 and we can get you that information.

There will be someone from Food Services and the Transportation departments in the cafeteria to answer any pertinent questions you may have.

Following Meet the Teacher Night, there will be an Athletic Meeting in the gym from 7:00-7:30 pm for any 6th-8th graders that want to play sports this year.  All students trying out for a sport must have an athletic packet completed before they try out.  The packet is now online at

If you have an incoming kindergarten student and they have not participated in a screening yet, the last screening is July 12th from 8:30 am-3:00 pm.

At Florence K-8, we are always focused on student safety.  For this reason, our after school parent pick up process will be different than it was last year.  If you pick up your child after school you will pick them up at the back of the school on Orlando Street.  Students will be with their teachers behind the gates and you can check your child out there.  WE WILL NO LONGER HAVE PARENT PICK UP IN THE CAFETERIA.  Orlando Street will also be the location to drop your child off in the morning.  This is a change that we know will take some time to get used to, but we feel it is a safer procedure.  We appreciate your patience as we work through the kinks. 

Kindergarten drop off and pick up will continue to take place at the kindergarten playground which is located on Virginia Street. 

We are looking forward to seeing you next Thursday at Meet the Teacher Night.  If you have any questions, please call the front office.

Mrs. Potter
Florence K-8 Principal
