Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,

You will be receiving a communication survey from the LSC. The purpose of this survey is to collect data to see how we can better serve the Farnsworth Community and keep you informed. Please take the time to fill
it out and return it to your child(s) teacher. 

This year, we will be developing a new CIWP (Continuous Improvement Work Plan) for Farnsworth School for the 2014-16 school years and we would like your input. A committee will be formed in the next few weeks; please look for information about how to get involved.

Next week is Spring Break and I hope you are able to enjoy some family time and outdoor activities since it looks like we might be in for better weather!

Please remember, my door is always open.

Mrs. Barbara E. OKen
Principal, Farnsworth School
