Note from the Principal

Monday, September 28th

Hello Boones Ferry Families!

As we head into our second full week of school, I am reflective of how resilient our community has been. Our students and teachers have faced many adversities and yet we are still finding joy and positive energy in our virtual classroom communities. This morning I dropped into several classrooms and found engaging educators, smiling students and student centered instruction. Thank you for partnering with us in this journey.

This week is full of fun, connection and learning. We will be kicking off our annual Dragonfly Dash this Thursday in a virtual format. There is a promo video coming from PSS on Wednesday to energize your children to engage with the new format. We are very excited to see pictures of kids being active this week while being connected virtually to one another.

Thursday is also our annual Curriculum Night. In consideration of the many stressors families and staff are experiencing as we juggle personal and professional responsibilities, we are approaching this event asynchronously this year. On Thursday evening, your child's teacher will be posting a video of themselves welcoming you to this memorable year! This will allow for families to access the video at a time that works best for them and also allow for families to participate in the Informational Night: Anxiety 101, being hosted by our district social workers.

This informational night for caregivers is back by popular demand... it was outstanding last year. You don't want to miss it! Please check out the flyer below. I encourage you to attend it will be worth your time!

Let's have a great week!

Dr. Jensen
