Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,

Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful summer. I had an eventful summer as I brought my oldest son to University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign for his Freshman year of college.

We would like to welcome several new staff members to the Farnsworth Family. Mr. Aldo Mazzotti will be teaching music, Mrs. Erica Albrecht will be teaching 6th grade Math and Science, and Ms. Amanda Fakhoury will be teaching 3rd grade. We are lucky to have them join our team! We also have two teachers on temporary leaves, but have wonderful substitutes here until they return. Mr. Seamus Glynn will be filling in for Mrs. Mary Nicholl and Mrs. Reva Shulman will be filling in for Mrs. Jackie McGuigan.

We are off to a great start and are looking forward to a fantastic school year. Please remember, my door is always open.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Barbara E. OKen
Principal, beoken@cps.edu
