It is so hard to believe that we are fast approaching the end of the 2020/2021 school year. It has been a year filled with amazing learning, laughter, and smiles, and at times challenges and worries as we have continued to learn how to navigate teaching and learning during a global pandemic. I want to extend a sincere thank you to all the staff at Follensbee as your professionalism, knowledge, support and commitment to health and safety has been tremendous and ensured that all students continued to thrive, be safe and engage in meaningful learning at school. I want to also take this opportunity to personally thank all the parents and guardians who have supported us, and their children during this extraordinary year of learning.
June is also the time when we have to say goodbye to each of our amazing graduates. Each one of you holds such a special place in our hearts and we are sad for you to go but excited for all the new possibilities that await you. All 10 of this year's graduates will be attending Christine Meikle School and we know each of you will delight in the opportunity to make new friends, connect with past graduates and engage in new learning. We also had the opportunity to welcome new students and families to the Follensbee community during intake meetings this month. We are so excited to welcome each of you to EFS and know that next year is going to be amazing. You may find our 2021-22 calendars on our website.To all the staff and students have a wonderful well deserved summer break. My hope is that each of you has time to relax, rejuvenate, laugh, and have lots of opportunity to connect with friends and family over the break. Take care and we look forward to seeing all students on the August 17 for the first day of school.
