Dear Farnsworth Parents, Families and Community Members,

Wednesday, November 12th, is our first report card pick up day. This is a very important time to come in and make contact with your child’s teacher(s).This is a great opportunity to see your child’s current level of achievement and assist them in setting goals for the rest of the school year.

As you set goals and think about next steps, I’d like to reference a book I am reading, How Children Succeed by Paul Tough. In it, he suggests that certain skills, like perseverance, can have more to do with success than intelligence. It’s wise to teach children that although sometimes things are difficult, it’s important that they not give up. We learn through struggle.
As Maya Angelou said, “In the struggle, lies the joy.”

We encourage the development of strong home school connections as
they are a vital part of your child’s education.

Please remember, my door is always open.

Mrs. Barbara E. OKen
Principal, Farnsworth School
