Subject: Welcome to the New Semester!


Dear Falcon Students, Faculty, and Staff,

As we embark on this new semester, I extend a warm welcome to you all. Whether you're returning to continue your academic journey or stepping into our community for the first time, I am thrilled to have you here at Lively.

A new semester brings with it a sense of renewed energy, fresh opportunities, and exciting challenges. It's a time to set new goals, explore new subjects, and push the boundaries of what we can achieve together. As we commence this journey, I encourage you to embrace every moment, seize every opportunity, and make the most of your time here.

To our returning students, welcome back! Your dedication, passion, and commitment continue to inspire us all. Let's build upon the successes of the Fall Semester together and strive for even greater accomplishments in the months ahead.

To our new students, welcome aboard! You are now part of a vibrant community dedicated to learning, growth, and excellence. As you navigate through your classes, clubs, and activities, remember that you are surrounded by a support network ready to help you thrive.

To our esteemed faculty and staff, thank you for your unwavering dedication to our students' success. Your expertise, guidance, and mentorship are invaluable components of the educational experience we offer here at Lively.

As we begin our strategic plan for this new semester, let us keep in mind the values that define us as a community: integrity, respect, diversity, and inclusivity. Let us foster an environment where every voice is heard, every perspective is valued, and every individual feels empowered to reach their full potential.

In the weeks and months ahead, let us challenge ourselves to push beyond our comfort zones, to embrace the unfamiliar, and embrace the transformative power of education.

Together, let us make this semester one of growth, discovery, and achievement.

Wishing you all a successful and fulfilling semester ahead!


Warm regards,

Sarah Hodges, Principal
