As principal of Flomaton Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at Flomaton Elementary.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filled with energy and enthusiasm for learning. Within the next several days, we will open our school doors to welcome you to the new school year.  Together, we will create a year of excellence for our children as we focus on improving student and family engagement, implementing the Alabama College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) and creating and maintaining a positive school culture and climate. We will create a school where safety, respect, accountability, support and excellence are highly evident!  It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of the Flomaton Elementary family.  At Flomaton Elementary School, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning.  Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for student academic growth and improvement.  We believe that all students can learn and must be prepared for the demands of the future.

As never before, we will focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with children, teachers and parents. We claim we are creating a culture of college and career readiness and this is the year when we will build shared understandings about what this means and ways parents and teachers can work together to ensure that every FES student is college and career ready. 

I am honored to serve as the principal at Flomaton Elementary School.  It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build a positive relationship that support the academic and social growth of every child.  Please feel free to contact me at 251-296-3991 extension 4801 or email me at 

Once again, welcome back!   Let's make it another great year at Flomaton Elementary!  We ARE the BEST at FES!!!

Loving every child every day,

Diane Holmes
