Each one of the five schools that comprise the Fort Thomas Independent Schools (Johnson Elementary, Moyer Elementary, Woodfill Elementary, Highlands Middle School and Highlands High School) will be open during the two-hour event, with tours of each building departing every 30 minutes.
“We are excited to open our doors so that others outside of our school community can see some of the great characteristics of the Fort Thomas Independent Schools,” said Jamee Flaherty, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services.
Dr. Karen Cheser, the Superintendent in Fort Thomas, sees the Open House as an ideal platform to share the District’s story and culture of excellence with students and families looking to become a part of it.
“Our schools represent national leaders in education and it’s our hope that families attending the Open House learn more about our vision and values by asking a lot of questions and interacting with leadership in the schools,” Dr. Cheser said. “We believe fully in developing the whole child and preparing our students for 21st century challenges and opportunities.”
The Open House will conclude in time for visitors to stay in town and enjoy the much-anticipated Fort Thomas Holiday Walk, a yearly tradition in which community members walk with their friends and neighbors through the Central Business District and visit businesses that have opened for the special event on a Sunday evening. Families can pay a visit to Santa Claus, take part in holiday-themed fun and games and take care of holiday shopping in a festive and family-friendly atmosphere.
The Holiday Walk lasts from 5:30-8:00 p.m.
