Dear Families –
With the end of the 2020-21 school year around the corner, I wanted to reach out and express how grateful I am for each of you. I continue to be inspired by your resilience and commitment to your child’s success. This school year has been unlike any other, but I am confident we will continue to grow stronger together. The Flint Community Schools team is committed to going above and beyond for the scholars of our district, and this year, our scholars have cleared many obstacles to keep pushing forward.
To celebrate our scholars and families, we are declaring June 14-18 as “Scholar and Family Appreciation Week.” Distance learning was made possible through every family’s engagement and participation. It wasn’t always easy, but we never stopped moving forward. Families across the district have served as scholars’ learning coaches, often having to adjust on a moment’s notice. For that reason, we celebrate our scholars and you—their families—for the patience and support as we navigated this past year.
In celebration of “Scholar and Family Appreciation Week,” teams from each school and the administration building will go door-to-door in the neighborhoods this Friday to thank our families. Additionally, Southwestern and ALA are hosting Chromebook return celebrations with a DJ and giveaways and Doyle-Ryder will host an end of year drive-thru.
We deeply appreciate your ongoing support this school year. Thank you for your commitment to Flint Community Schools and for serving as our partner in your child’s education. We look forward to building upon this momentum for next school year.
Your partner in education,
Mrs. Anita J. Steward
