Exciting End of Year Celebrations
Dear Fenton Community and Families
We are closing in on the last month of the school year, and as we look at the exciting things we've accomplished in our Strategic Plan this school year; we also have to look back on the lessons learned from this first "normal" school year in over 3 years. While there are many lessons for sure, relationships and communication, and never underestimating those two things in trying to provide a successful learning environment to our students to me were the most valuable. We hope to continue to focus on those two things moving into the summer.
On May 25th @6:30 we will get the honor of watching our 2023 graduates walk across the stage, and I am very excited to get the opportunity to articulate a few parting words and how proud we are of their accomplishments. We can't wait to see all the places you all will go in your post-secondary adventures and making the world a better place.
Last day of the school year is June 2, and this marks the last newsletter of the 22-23 school year. The first newsletter of the 23-24 school year will start in August with our Back-to-School Information.
Thank you FAPS Teachers! You are invaluable to our WeAreFenton Family
The first full week of May is National Teacher Recognition, and we can't thank all of our FAPS Teachers enough for their impact on our school system, and the impact they have on the future of our community. I would encourage you to either reach out to a past teacher of yours, reach out to your child's favorite teacher, or a friend that is a teacher and thank them for their service. I leave you with this quote from Andy Rooney, "Most of us end up with no more than a dozen people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives"
Congrats to those retiring from our school district - we wish nothing more than continued happiness in your next adventure! #WeAreFenton
