Dear Parents,

I cannot begin to capture the feeling of gratitude we have for the effort that went into Staff Appreciation Week! The cards and carnations, the delicious food and drinks (all week) and the gifts to close out the week are yet another reason why we are truly blessed to work in this community.  To all of the PAC coordinators and to everyone who contributed in some way to this event, please know how thankful we are.

This week is Food Allergy Awareness Week.  At Florence Sawyer School, I am proud of the progress that we have made in our efforts to keep our campus physically and emotionally safe for all learners.  We will observe food allergy awareness this week with some facts and information to share during our morning announcements and on Friday when we encourage staff and students to wear Teal.

Last week, I tried (unsuccessfully, as it turned out) to share two links with you that seem to have had broken links.  I will try again to include them below.

Last week, I shared a video FSTV had produced of an interview with first grader Vivien Gregory. Vivien and her mom Kerin sat down with FSTV’s Gracie O’Leary to help educate us about Cystic Fibrosis. FSTV Spotlight Interview with Vivien Gregory.

FSTV was also on the scene at the Student Council Luau Barbeque Dance and Party. They produced the following Luau Party Video which has been playing in the lobby of the Sawyer Wing this week.   

I also want to remind you that tomorrow is the deadline for providing additional feedback for our placement process.  I want to reassure you that this isn’t necessary but always welcome if you feel there are additional elements for us to consider. The original announcement follows.  ….. As parents, you may have additional insights and information that will aid in the placement process. This feedback might include your perspective on your child’s strengths and challenges, the academic goals you have for your child as well as your perception of your child’s social relationships.  For this purpose, I have created a form 2018-2019 FSS Placement Process Parent Input Form  that you may choose to access.  The deadline for contribution to this form is Tuesday, May 15, 2018. The point of the deadline is to ensure that we have your feedback in a timely fashion with enough time to make adjustments as needed.
