Folwell Family Listening Posts for Students and Families

6/2/2020
Dear Folwell Families,
Earlier this week we shared a message with you acknowledging our mourning of the death of George Floyd and the unrest in our nation.  The message was also to affirm you and your family that we love you, care about and we are here for you.
Our Folwell Staff wants to remind you that we are here for you and your families.  We love and care about you and your families!  All are welcome here!  You are respected here!  You are supported here!  Folwell: “Together We Will!”
Please remember that if you want to talk with someone, you can call my office, 328-3224, email me, wemoritz@rochester.k12.mn.us, or call our school resource line to work with our counselor, Stephanie Evans Hanson, or our school social worker, Lindy Lange, at 328-4971.
At Folwell we use the acronym S.O.A.R. with our students and I am truly astonished as to how often this connects to life, too.  We are A – Always Learning and during these unprecedented times, we want to look for new ways to talk through things that are happening around us. 
Tomorrow night, Wednesday, June 3, from 6:30-7:30 p.m., we will be hosting a Google Meet Listening Post, inviting all of our students.  Students of color are also invited to an additional Google Meet Listening Post from 7:30-8:30pm.  We want to offer a safe space to respectfully listen to how all of our students and families are feeling.

Please join us! 
Sincerely,
Wendy J. Moritz, Principal
