Principal's Message

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!

​It is hard to believe that we will welcome spring this month, and that families, students, and staff will be looking ahead to spring break. Spring is always an exciting time to explore our outdoor environment and witness firsthand through each of our senses the many changes that will take place. To support exploration of the outdoors at this time of year there is an abundance of great literature that delves into the concept of spring. Two great reads you may want to explore with your child are When Spring Comes and Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring. When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes and painter Laura Dronzek looks at the ways in which the world transforms when spring comes while Kenard Pak's Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring is a cheerful conversation that a young boy has with nature as he observes how the season changes from winter to spring.                                                             
January and February saw us engage in many great learning opportunities and continue the work of our school development plan. January highlights included the opportunity to meet with families during our parent teacher conferences. Teachers always look forward to having the opportunity to share and celebrate the progress that each of the students has made and to engage in conversation about the next steps in learning progressions for each of the students. While one of the many highlights of February included many classes learning about the Olympics and a culminating activity that saw us partake in a friendly competitive biathlon event organized by Colleen's class. This fun event saw us cheering one another on in a socially distanced outdoor event. 
We currently have two surveys for families to participate in and we encourage you to share your feedback. Please submit your thoughts to the School Planning Survey | Unique/Special Settings​ and the 2021-22 Assurance Survey​.
I also want to say thank you to everyone who placed an order for Emily Follensbee branded t-shirts, sweatshirts and masks. These orders not only contribute to fundraising at Emily Follensbee but also promote school spirit and pride. It was great to see so many people wearing Emily Follensbee branded clothing. We hope students and their families have a wonderful Spring Break!
Jennifer Hart, Principal​
