Hello Falcon Family.
I wanted to use this platform to formally introduce myself. My name is Cody Wallinger and I will be your new 7-12 principal. As cliché as it is, I could not be more excited for this opportunity. The personal and professional commitment to excellence, the towns of Adams and Filley and ultimately the school of Freeman have established and live out is inspiring. For my family to be able to become a small part of the Freeman family, is very special to us.
On that note, I would like to introduce my wife Lily, our five-year-old son Rocco, and our 1-year-old son Archer.
Growing up in Odell, NE I can attest to the invaluable benefits ‘Small Town, USA’ offers. As your principal I want you to know from the get-go that I believe in and am committed to the mission of our Freeman Public Schools. Namely, the foundational principle that it is our responsibility to adequately prepare our youth for life outside these Falcon halls. This reality roots itself in the understanding and belief that what we do within these educational settings has its greatest impact outside of them – in a manner we may never truly realize.
As your new principal, you have my promise that every one of your children will be loved and valued like they deserve. Our school is our community, and our community is our school. One without the other is unimaginable. Thus, I embrace the idea of investing my time, talents, and treasures into helping both continue to flourish.
In closing, I look forward to introducing myself and getting to know all of you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any/every question, comment, and/or concern you may have.
