As always, it is so hard to believe that we are already at the end of our 2021-2022 school year. It has been an amazing year filled with incredible learning, laughter, smiles and opportunities for students to make strong connections to their peers, classroom teams, and all the other professionals who make learning a reality at Follensbee. I want to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who works at Emily Follensbee as each day your professionalism, knowledge, support, and commitment to well-being has been tremendous and ensured that all students continue to thrive, be safe and engage in meaningful learning at school. I also want to take this opportunity to personally thank all the parents and guardians who continue to support us and their children every day. We applaud all of you!
June is also the time when we have to say goodbye to each of our amazing graduates. Each graduate 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. This year we have 12 graduates that 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. In addition, we have two graduates that will be attending alternate programs and are so excited for them to meet new friends and engage in great learning in an exciting new environment.
June has also been an exciting time as we have had the opportunity to welcome new students and families to the Follensbee community during intake meetings. We are so excited to welcome each of you to EFS and know that next year is going to be amazing.
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 Monday, August 15 for the first day of classes.
Have a wonderful summer everyone!
