Welcome Letter 2018-19

Assalamu’alaikum Wa’rahmatullahi Wa’barakatuhu Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Folsom Educational Academy, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your children can achieve their highest potential. I’d like to begin by welcoming the new members of our FEA community! And to our returning parents, it is wonderful to have you back!

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need collaborative support from both the home and school. As allies in your children’s education, we share and hold the responsibility for their success dear to our hearts. At FEA, we are committed to nurturing your children both in faith and academics.

As partners in your children’s success, we ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
  2. Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
  3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  4. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of their success and their needs

As the school year rushes in, here’s a short guide to help you get the ball rolling and your kids ready for learning!
