Friendswood ISD is happy to invite the community to attend the second annual Under the Oaks celebration. The event will be held on Thursday, Aug. 9 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in front of the Friendswood Schools Museum.
It will be an evening of fellowship for the students, parents, staff and community to hear from Superintendent Thad Roher and other staff about the 2018-2019 school year. The celebration will include the opportunity to visit with the FISD family over kettle corn and lemonade.
Roher believes the sense of community is something essential to the identity of Friendswood.
“A big part of Friendswood is the importance of relationships,” Roher said. “I want to reach out to the community and invite them to be a part of Friendswood ISD because we have the characteristics the world needs.”
Roher said he believes the oak trees represent those characteristics. Planted by Friendswood educators Floyd Brown and his son Floyd Brown, Jr. circa 1940, the trees have conveyed character and beauty and brought cooling shade to the school campus for many years. They are symbols of the deep roots and strength of the Friendswood community and school district.
FISD would like to encourage you to come visit us under the oaks so everyone can relax, get to know the district and join in the excitement for the start of a new school year.
