    Dear Friday Harbor Elementary School Families,    


    October finds us well under way with the beginning of another great year of learning. It feels so good to be back in the groove with our students engaged in high levels of learning in all classrooms. Students have settled in rountines and expectations as teachers create welcoming, supportive, high achieving classroom environments.                                           


    I am so proud of the hard work, perseverance, and stamina your children are exhibiting in their classrooms whether reading, writing, working on math, or at Specials, these kids are learning and having fun!

    lunch Please plan on stopping by the office to join me for lunch on the first Monday of each month throughout the school year. I'd like to know how you feel about the school - home connection. Do you feel welcomed at school, encouraged to volunteer, and knowledgable about upcoming events? You can provide feedback at any time via email dianeball@sjisd.wednet.edu or phone 360-370-7309.
