Dear Finland Families:
Based on the feel of cooler air kissing our cheeks, the sound of football fans cheering in the distance, and the smell of pumpkin spice pretty much everywhere we go, it's safe to say that another fall is upon us. As the school year is now in full swing, I wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate how successful our transition has been from the summer to the school year.
We began this year with much uncertainty, as changing boundary lines led to a new mix of students, new friends, new families, and for many a new school. Just one month in, I can confidently say that it does not feel like two schools of children merging together, but instead as one Finland Family. This success is due to the hard work and compassion of each staff member and family member in creating a safe and nurturing learning environment of unconditional care. I have no doubt this will continue to grow throughout the year.
Thank you for your role in making Finland Elementary what it is today.
