Principal's Message


​What a privilege it is to be writing my first Principal message to you as the newly appointed Principal of Emily Follensbee School.  Having had the opportunity to get to know our students, staff, and families over the last four years as the Assistant Principal has certainly been a highlight of my career. I am so honored and filled with gratitude to continue this work as the Principal of this amazing school. I want to take the time to thank everyone for their kind words, well wishes and congratulatory messages.  As I transition into my new role, please know how much I look forward to being able to continue to support and serve the students, families and staff of Emily Follensbee. If you ever have questions, comments or concerns please reach out to me at or through the school phone at 403-777-6980.
Staff and students are excited for the month of March with the promise of warmer weather and the glimpses of Spring that will be coming our way. All classrooms have been utilizing our outdoor space “Cliffside" and will be looking for more opportunities to explore outside as the month progresses. To support this exploration with their students and engage in their own learning opportunities teachers will participate in a professional learning opportunity with Christina Pickles. Christina is the owner and founder of Get Outside and Play, and has already supported staff to better understand children's development and learning in an outdoor setting. Our professional learning opportunity is scheduled for March 12 which is a non-instructional day for students. We also welcome Spring Break this month which takes place March 27 to April 5.
We are excited to welcome Colleen Russell, Learning Leader & Teacher, into the role of Acting Assistant Principal as we go through the process of hiring a permanent candidate. Colleen's willingness to step out of the classroom and into this leadership role has been a tremendous asset to supporting a smooth transition.
Again, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude for the opportunity to serve as Principal of this amazing school. I look forward to what I know will be a wonderful and exciting journey with all of you.​
With Gratitude,
Jennifer Hart
