School News & Announcements

June 9, 2016

Dear Faubion Families,

It’s been a phenomenal year here at Faubion @ Tubman Campus. Our 2015-16 school year has now come to a close and we are already anticipating an exciting 2016-17 school year. We would like to thank the Tubman Community for welcoming us with open arms.

Parents and Guardians, I would like to thank you all for your dedication, support, and advocacy for all our students. We have had a very busy and successful year in school, and you as partners in the education of your children deserve much of the credit.

We offer our sincerest best wishes to Mrs. Martha Stoeger, our beloved third grade teacher, who is retiring this year after many years of loyal service to our Faubion family. We bid farewell to Ms. Long, who will be returning to her home state, and Ms. Wei who has completed her foreign exchange teaching and will return to China. Finally, thank you to our departing temporary staff members, Ms. Scroggins, Ms. Diamond, Ms. Carmichael, Ms. Dent for a job well done. Finally, so long to Ms. Weitz, our ESL teacher has been reassigned to another school in PPS. Our departing Bulldog staff members have given us so many gifts; they will be remembered in our thoughts and well-wishes as they continue to spread their love of educating children in their career endeavors.

Please continue to encourage your child to continue their skills as a life-long learner this summer. Make regular visits to the library, put on a summer play, write short stories, make new friends, and count the stars.
Finally, we will be mailing your child’s supply list and homeroom assignment by June 30, 2016. Please alert the office if your home address has changed. Bus Transportation information will no longer be mailed to your home in August. The Transportation Department will be directing parents and schools to their webpage to find their bus information http://www.pps.net/Page/141.

Until then, enjoy a restful and replenishing summer with your families! Don’t forget to visit the construction site of our new Faubion + Concordia School.

Yours in Bulldog Pride,
LaShawn A. Lee, Proudest Principal in PPS
