Eagle Sightings September

Holly Wehner, Principal

Dear Eagle Families,

Welcome back to school! As I mentioned in my welcome letter, I am very honored and excited to be back as the Friday Harbor Elementary School Principal! I am so proud of the staff and students in our school. We have all been through many changes in the past two years, and we are so excited to be moving into a year with even more normalcy and togetherness.


It is so nice to have the energy and excitement of the students and staff back in the school! It is so wonderful to stop into classrooms and see teachers and students taking time to get to know one another and working on expectations that will provide consistency, predictability, and structure for the new school year.


I am pleased to share that we will be able to open the school up to families and community members this year. As the year gets rolling and teachers really know their schedule and where they would need help the most, they will share with you plans they have for inviting in volunteers. Volunteers will need to show proof of vaccination and fill out a background check.


As we move into this new year, we will keep families updated with all new health and safety information. Thank you for continuing to partner with us to help keep students healthy at school!


I have had so much fun connecting with students throughout the day. It may have been a wave or hello in the halls, chatting at recess or lunch, or a round of 4 square, but it is just fantastic to see familiar faces, and get to know new ones . If any of you would like to reach out and connect with me, please feel free to email or call me! hollywehner@sjisd.org or (360)370-7309.


Thank you,



Holly Wehner

Substitutes needed!

Share your knowledge and get involved. Paraeducaters, teachers, custodians, bus drivers, lunch servers, secretaries; we need backup from the community in all areas!

You can set your days of availability, pick the teachers you like to sub for, and review assignments before accepting. Take a look at the district website for more information on becoming a substitute for the San Juan Island School District.
