I am so excited to welcome all returning and new students and families to the 2022-2023 school year at Emily Follensbee School. Emily Follensbee is such a wonderful place for students to learn and grow. I know the year ahead will be an incredible learning journey for each of our students and am excited to see the great learning opportunities that students will engage in. This summer was a busy one at EFS. Thanks to a generous contribution from the Emily Follensbee Children's Society and the Calgary Board of Education work commenced on having all our student bathrooms updated with new electrical and lift and tracks systems. This project is a substantial one, and will make a significant difference for students and staff at EFS. Installation will continue in after-school hours through the month of September. Once again, I want to thank the Society and the CBE for their generous support in making this project a reality.
A reminder that many forms were sent home with your student in the first week of school. These forms are important, and we ask that they be completed and returned as soon as possible so that we have the most up-to-date student information. If you need any support or have questions, do not hesitate to reach out to your child's classroom teacher or call the office at 403-777-6980.
I am so excited about the year ahead and look forward to welcoming all of you!
Jennifer Hart, Principal
