June 2019

As the school year comes to a close, our minds and hearts are filled to the brim. It’s been a great year! What a school! Together we’ve learned much and shared experiences that will long remain with us in the years to come. The strength of our community and the wholehearted passion to make our school a wonderful place of learning primarily for our children, but also for all of us, makes Farmington River Elementary truly a special place.

Special Thanks to all of you who have contributed in ways small, large and unimaginable! For helping with our drama productions, volunteering in our active PTA, chaperoning field trips, helping with Field Day, providing food and/or organizing lunches for our teachers and staff, organizing events and working at these events, showing up at Open House and other school activities to support your children, and serving on various committees. Thanks for getting your kids to school on time each day, for kind notes of encouragement that mean so much, for sending your children in with healthy lunches obviously packed with love, for making sure homework gets done and turned in. Thank you for providing rich, engaging, and well-rounded experiences for your children and knowing that education is about joy, wonder and fostering curiosity, along with the development of social skills so needed to succeed. For these, and a million other things, we are truly grateful.

To those of you who are leaving us for new places and adventures, we wish you all the best. Congratulations to our very capable 6th graders who are on to a new stage in their academic career!

Have a safe and fun-filled summer break!
