Principal's Message

Happy Holidays

​“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love." ~ Hamilton Wright Mabie ~
It is hard to believe that December is upon us, and winter break is right around the corner. December is always a lovely time to rest and rejuvenate, spend time with loved ones, and to take time to recognize the many celebrations that take place such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Winter (Ipákssaisstoyi) Solstice, and Omisoka. 
It has been amazing to reflect and witness the growth in the students since August, and to see how well they have adjusted to routines that support them to engage in meaningful learning each day. Staff have been focused on supporting students to develop their expressive communication skills, to enhance each students' ability to self or co-regulate which promotes well-being, and to support the early exploration and development of number and spatial sense as highlighted in our School Development Plan. For more information, please reference our School Development Plan that is available on the Emily Follensbee School website.  
In addition, to all the great learning the last two months has seen us celebrate Halloween, partake in a moving virtual Remembrance Day assembly, as well as a virtual retirement celebration for our caretaker, Terry, who spent over 20 years taking care of Emily Follensbee School. I also want to take this opportunity to thank the School Council for organizing our Purdy's Fall Fundraiser and for each one of you that supported this initiative by placing an order. The support we received far exceeded our expectations! At this time, we are also excited to announce that are next fundraiser will start in January. We will be posting an online store that will offer for sale Emily Follensbee branded t-shirts, sweatshirts and masks in an array of colors.  
I hope that everyone has a wonderful December and a winter break full of amazing family moments.
Jennifer Hart,​ Principal
