September 2019

Welcome Back!!

We have a lot of things going on at Farmington River Elementary now and in the months to come. Please take a moment to read this newsletter and make note of upcoming events. We want you to be well informed.

As we begin another new year of school, I want to share with you just a bit of our educational philosophy.

The research and our experience are overwhelming that parents’ positive engagement can have significant     influence on the child’s academic achievements and success in school! It influences not only student achievement, but also students’ expectations for themselves, their goal setting, and their engagement in appropriate social behaviors.

The FRRSD philosophy is that we want parents to be involved and engaged with their children’s education. Parent     engagement means that parents hold high expectations for their children and make education a priority in the family.

On Wednesday, September 18th we will hold our “Back to School Night” from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.  Prior to classroom visits please join us in the gym for a brief introduction of new staff.

Classroom visits will begin at 6:15pm, with two 20 minute segments allowing parents/guardians to visit multiple classrooms – 6:15pm-6:35pm and 6:40pm-7:00pm.
