Admiral Parent Edition

My Holiday Wish For You!

Dear Admiral Parents:

This week has been so busy that I did not want the day to pass without sending you a special holiday message. Thank you for continually supporting school programs and instilling Admiral Pride in our students. We know that you entrust your most precious gift (your child) and it's a trust that we do not take lightly. We share a deep care and commitment to ensuring that our students receive the best education possible and an AWESOME school experience. I am personally grateful for your support as we continually work to make FCH the best school in Alexandria! We made it through the 1st part of the school year and I am sure that the 2nd part of the school year, although EXTREMELY LONG :-), will be even better.

Until then, I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy Holiday. As parents you have demonstrated your incredible commitment to FCH. We have made some extraordinary progress. I love the fact that you are showing great commitment by attending school events. It seems as if every time we have an event it gets bigger and bigger. Continued parent engagement is when real and sustained progress can be made. We look forward to seeing even more of you as you commit to supporting Francis C. Hammond Middle School in the New Year!

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday. Take care or yourselves and those you love!

Mrs. Hall
