Spring is Here!

March was another great month here at Emily Follensbee and we returned from spring break after a well-deserved rest! Earlier this month we were delighted to announce that Lanna Myers will be our new Assistant Principal and will start with us on June 1. Lanna has an amazing skill set and will be a wonderful addition to the Emily Follensbee Family. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Colleen Russell, Acting Assistant Principal, Darcy Allen, Acting Learning Leader, and Diana Kurila, our temporary Classroom Teacher for being willing to step up and support the school through this transition. 

It has been amazing to see the many signs of spring and students engaged in so many wonderful learning opportunities both indoors and out. Our classroom displays are alive and a testament to the amazing learning that is happening.  

April also sees Parents/Guardians receiving the Assurance Survey (formerly Accountability Pillar Survey) to provide feedback on your child's education. This year, we are asking Parents/Guardians of children who are in grades 4, 5, 6 & 7 at Emily Follensbee to participate in the survey. This year's survey is a pilot that will include questions measuring both the required Alberta Education Assurance Measures and the Accountability Pillar survey measures. Considering the unique circumstances of this school year, several items related to COVID-19 have been added to the end of the survey for the Ministry of Education to collect basic information about the student, parent, and teacher experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. I would like to encourage all parents to complete this survey as it provides the school with valuable information, please note that the survey closes on Friday, April 23. If you have questions about the survey, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Enjoy the warmer weather,

Jen​nifer Hart​
