Teacher Appreciation Week
Thank you for everything you do to support our school. Each day I see you working tirelessly to make a positive difference in the lives of our students. I am awed by your dedication and commitment to their success.
This year I have seen you be more flexible and compromise more than is reasonable to ask of you. I have seen you put the well being of your students ahead of your own. I have seen you dedicate your own personal and family time to planning and preparation to support your students and ensure that despite COVID protocols, they would look forward to being in school. You have overcome the seemingly endless challenges presented to you with grace and optimism. You have taken on extra responsibilities, taught remote learning, have been asked to do everything in a new and different way and have done all of this while juggling and adapting to ever-changing guidelines and protocols. Despite all of these challenges, you have worked hard to shield our students from the stresses of COVID and have created inviting, welcoming, and supportive classroom communities for them.
I couldn't possibly be more proud of you and what you've accomplished this year. On behalf of the entire school community, thank you to the Thomas Fleming faculty and staff for your unbounded dedication to our students.
Matthew Roy, Principal
A Huge Thank you!
A note from the office
- Water Bottles need to still come to school daily. We have several students forgetting theirs daily. We have very small 5oz cups to hand out if a student needs one, but it would be best for them to bring their own. If your student doesn't have a water bottle, please let me know in the office, and we will try and help.
- We will still be going outside daily unless it's raining really hard, so please make sure your student has warmer clothes/raincoat on days that call for rain.
End of Year Happenings
- Be on time to school.
- Try to have your child go to bed a reasonable time, so that they are well rested
- A good healthy breakfast will help fuel the mind

What's Happening Around School
Team Mountaineer Mrs. Downings 5th grade class
Students in Ms. Downing's class collaborated on an essay on speaking up for what is right. They worked in small groups to write each paragraph. Then a group of six students:worked with Mr. Davidson to turn the essay into a video. Thank you to Lucas, Sarai, Luke, Oona, Jacob. and Amelia for your hard work. It came out great!
Important Outcomes for Equity in the EWSD
Students, teachers, school leaders and community members are invited to participate in focus groups to help the EWSD continue to make progress towards becoming an equitable, anti-racist school district.
District leadership wants to be able to best tell the story of where we are succeeding and where we need to continue to change and grow. As we look to issue an annual equity report, we need community input to decide what information goes into the report, how best to present it, and how to make sure it is helping us reach our vision.
We hope you will join us for our last upcoming focus group on May 11 from 5:30-7PM. (All groups will be held virtually via Zoom.) Click here to register.
