Letter from Superintendent
On behalf of the teachers, staff, and students of Flagler Schools, allow me to welcome you to Flagler Auditorium. For nearly three decades, this facility has been the epicenter of the performing arts in Flagler County and Flagler Schools has been a proud partner the entire time. We are especially excited about the renovations and expansion of the facility this year. The new spaces look wonderful and it adds much-needed space for a growing fine arts community.
As educators, we know how important the arts are to our students. Our goal is to provide the children of Flagler County a well-rounded education which includes the sciences, math, and language arts. However, exposure to the arts cannot be ignored. The arts allow our students to explore the world around them and express themselves in ways not possible in a normal classroom setting. I am certain that in keeping the arts a vital component in our schools, it helped Flagler Schools earn an “A” rating from the Florida Department of Education, the first for our district in eight years.
I applaud the Flagler Auditorium staff and the Flagler Auditorium Governing Board for bringing in another great season of entertainment for all citizens of Flagler County. As usual, it is a varied collection of entertainment which strives to bring something to everyone, no matter what their particular “tastes” may be. You are directly supporting the arts by attending an event here. The support the Flagler Auditorium staff and the Governing Board is also appreciated by our students. It ranges from providing a professional stage on which our students perform, to providing real-world experience with working behind the scenes of a wonderful facility. We’ve seen a number of students go on to great things professionally in the arts who got their start on or around this stage. Our students also receive scholarships and teachers receive grants through the Governing Board.
Thank you to the patrons, sponsors, volunteers, and community for supporting the Flagler Auditorium through the years and through the various expansion and renovation projects which make this facility one of the best in the region. You are ensuring the arts remain an integral part in the lives of our students.
