Three teachers hold up a sign for convocation

The auditorium at Friendswood High School was filled with excitement on the morning of Monday, Aug. 9 as 796 Friendswood ISD employees kicked off the start of a new school year at Convocation.

The event got off to a great start with Superintendent Thad Roher recognizing new employees, including a few FHS alumni. Following a short introduction, he asked FHS Student Council President Cameron Peter to join him on stage to lead the crowd in the pledge of allegiance. In another tribute to America, the FHS choir performed the National Anthem to roll into the message for the year.

FISD School Board of Trustees President Tony Hopkins then gave a speech welcoming the teachers back and emphasizing the power they hold to make an impact on students’ lives. Following Hopkins words of encouragement, Superintendent Thad Roher addressed the staff and introduced to them the new theme for the school year: legacy. He encouraged them to think about the new legacy they will create this school year as they all work toward the betterment of students.

Lindsey Foley, executive director of human resources, was in attendance.

“We are so excited to welcome all new and returning employees back for the 2021-2022 school year,” Foley said. “Each one of them plays a big role in building the legacy of Friendswood ISD and we are thankful to have them be a part of the mustang family.”

FISD students will return to school on Tuesday, Aug. 17.
