We greatly enjoyed seeing our students' caregivers last night -- and were especially pleased that many of our newer students were represented! Folks followed their student's schedule, shared some refreshments, and had a chance to chat with teachers and other staff.
We hope that all parents and guardians will be able to attend our fall Parents Night, when they will have the opportunity to follow their child's schedule, meet as a group, and enjoy light refreshments. Please note this event does not include conferences with teachers about individual students, which can be scheduled through your Homeroom Teacher/Counselor, and is for adults only.
To honor Hispanic Heritage Month, which began on September 15th, staff followed our Farr tradition of decorating doors. Displays celebrate flags of Spanish-speaking countries; accomplished artists in music, literature and painting; athletes and pop stars; and more. We are proud to recognize the rich cultural contributions of the Hispanic and Latino communities in the U.S. and abroad.
September 1st was our first day of school, and already students are getting back into their academic routines and starting 2021-2022 off with positive momentum. Even our new students are settling in nicely. We can't wait to see the amazing things our students are going to accomplish this year!
Our five-week summer program starts on July 6th and ends on August 9th. Academic classes happen in the morning as usual, but many of the courses offered are aimed at student interests and include hands-on, interactive curriculum. Afternoons feature community trips, local and further away, for enrichment, career exploration, and just plain fun.
We are pleased to announce that Tim Gallagher joined our team as Associate Director on June 1st. Tim comes to us with a wealth of experience in education and we are excited that he has joined the Farr Community.
