Dear Parents and Guardians,
This week we started a new school year! We have been very excited to welcome students back into the school building and would like to thank all of you for supporting our teachers and our staff for making this unprecedented school opening a success. Students and staff alike were excited to see each other again. Welcome to our new families and especially to our new kindergarten families. You will soon find out that Alexander Ferguson School is a village of caring and generous people – young and old. Our inquiry topic this year is “Generosity". Throughout our year, we will be focusing on the many ways we can each demonstrate generosity and kindness in and out of our school.
