Dear Finletter Students and Families,
As this very unusual school year draws to a close, I would like to take a moment to share a few thoughts and sentiments on behalf of the faculty at the Thomas K. Finletter School. I am sure everyone is ready to enjoy their much-deserved summer break. This school year has been a very unique year, unlike any other. We had to navigate through a full year of uncertainty in the wake of the pandemic, but we finished strong. The successful completion of this school year could not have been possible had it not been for the determination and resilience demonstrated by our students, parents, and staff. Kudos to everyone for staying the course!
We want to thank you for your kindness, grace, and cooperation as our faculty and staff members worked to provide quality learning experiences for our students and to support their efforts to learn online and in person. We have been amazed by the flexibility, tenacity, and creativity that our students have shown as they have navigated this new and different way of accessing their education. They are resilient and we know that they will come through this difficult time having learned important lessons about themselves as learners. I look forward to a much more promising and exciting new school year when we return.
Please ensure that you continue to monitor Finletter’s website and ClassDojo for future communication regarding accessing report cards, schedules for 2021-22, and other details regarding plans for reopening school in the fall. For now, we wanted simply to reach out to say that we will miss our students very much and that we wish you a safe and healthy summer and look forward to seeing our students again in the fall.
I wish you all an enjoyable and safe summer break!
Tamara Edwards, Principal
