Dear Finland Families:
Does anyone else have trouble believing that we have made it to December? It seems like just yesterday that all of your students fresh summer faces came into the building for the new school year. Our year was full of promise as we lifted our expectations for ourselves and each other at Finland Elementary.
I am thrilled that the year continued to live up to this early exuberance. We have a massively successful food drive in November, collecting over 1,800 food items for local families in need! We are continuing to push ourselves as educators through cutting edge resources along with tried and true instructional strategies. Our students have also continued to push themselves, and they are growing at a notable rate mentally, physically, and emotionally.
As 2018 winds down, let's keep this momentum going. Continue to encourage your students and celebrate their progress, and we will do the same. Together, we can continue to make this the best school year yet.
Make sure to take some time this holiday season as a family, as time seems to go by faster every year. Thank you for all you do for our students each and every day and for helping Finland Elementary make a difference in our community.
