Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,

Farnsworth School was honored by the Mayor’s Office for two different achievements. We received a letter congratulating us on our impressive gains our students made on the NWEA test in Math. We also received a congratulatory letter for achieving Creative Schools Certification; Farnsworth is considered excelling in this area due to our fantastic Visual Arts and Music programs.

In other news, we are excited to have Alderman Arena visit our school on October 17th as Principal for the Day. We are looking forward to showing off our wonderful school and programs.

Did your family get to see the lunar eclipse? There are so many wonderful things going on around us; it’s nice to stop and “smell the roses” once in a while. In case you didn't, there’s another one in April!

Mrs. Barbara E. OKen
Principal, Farnsworth School
