Next week FLEC will be hosting a virtual Week of Prayer. Each day a different staff member will give a worship thought and pray with our students. There will also be a challenge for the week in which students can participate. These videos will be posted on our Facebook and Instagram pages. This Week of Prayer will not take the place of the original Spring Week of Prayer that is scheduled on the school calendar. We are planning to still have that one as well. More details about that later. We thank you for continued prayers for our Forest Lake community – our students, teachers, staff, and the e-learning that is taking place – while you are home with your families. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myflec #distancelearning #spiritualenrichment #virtualweekofprayer...

After 38 years of dedicated service to the FLEC students and community, Linda Batto has decided to retire at the end of this school year. While Mrs. Batto has served as a teacher in multiple grades over the 38 years, she is currently a 5th grade teacher. During her time with FLEC she has impacted thousands of students and left a distinct mark on our school. We are all better because of it and she will be greatly missed! Mrs. Batto is looking forward to retirement and plans to remain part of the FLEC Family. Take a moment to comment below and share your memories and warm wishes. Thank you, Mrs. Batto, for your dedication to Adventist Education! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #myflec #StaffChanges... See MoreSee Less
She is a great person to talk to about anything. ❤️❤️
Congrats! Enjoy your upcoming retirement!!
She was one of my very favorite teachers! This warmed my heart just to see her! Enjoy your retirement! ❤️
When I was brand new to FLEC, Ms. Batto stopped me during the first week of teacher meetings and told me that she was making a lanyard for my ID! I didn’t even know that I needed one and she was already taking care of it. That pretty much sums up my experience with Ms. Batto. She anticipates needs.
The Wall family was blessed by your ministry!! Enjoy switching gears ❤️
Love you Mrs.Batto! Thank you for everything
Best wishes & congrats, Linda! Thanks for being a great teacher for our Julie back in 93 or 94! God bless you 🎉🙏🎈💗🎉🙏🎈💗
I always enjoyed subbing in your classroom. I loved all the snoopy additions but you were so organized and the students were always fun to be with. You are an awesome teacher🎉💐🎊
I wish you a happy retirement, Linda!
She's the first teacher my daughter had when we moved to FLEC. She's more than a colleague. She's family and I love her!
Snoopy and I want to say her birthday is April 17... I always think of her on that day. Kind lady and great teacher!
You are so loved! Thank you for pushing Bradley with his reading! He sure did put up a fight but you were so awesome. His favorite memory of your class was they got to have cups and he got to go collect the ice and got a little 💵 for helping! ♥️🥰
One word..snoopy! I can’t see anything Peanuts now, without thinking of you, thank you for your years of dedication
Congratulations Linda, please know I will be forever grateful for everything you did for Lanny and Douglas.❤❤
Thanks to Mrs Batto I got to take care of "LaBlanca" over the summer 🐁Some of my favorite FLEC memories are with Mrs Batto. Enjoy your retirement, you deserve it!👏👏
She welcomed me into the class when I came in halfway through the year. It was a celebration when I arrived helping me feel special not scared
Yay! Enjoy every minute of YOU time!! You certainly do deserve it!💜
Congratulations!! You are a wonderful Teacher!! Wishing you all the best! Sending lots of love!!
Congratulations! The girls will miss you!!!
Blessings and best wishes. 38 amazing years. God bless.
Hands down one of the best teachers ever!! Thank you for everything you’ve done Ms. Batto ❤️
Congratulations and thank you for your dedication and love to our children for so many years. Just amazing! God bless you Linda!
Congratulations on your pending retirement, please enjoy!
Thank you for EVERYTHING you have done for all our kids. You are loved and blessed 🙏❤️👍
I got stuck in traffic and got to school a bit late. I went to aftercare assuming that is where my daughter would have been. She was not there. I went to the classroom and she was sitting on Mrs. Batto’s lap crying. Mrs. Batto didn’t have the heart to send her as Lauren said “my mom has always picked me up on time, something must have happened, was she in an accident?” (We didn’t have cell phones!) Thank you for loving Lauren and all your students with active care!
Today’s Trivia Thursday is brought to you by our 4th Grade Teachers in honor of the 4th Grade St. Augustine field trip that would have been today. St. Augustine is the nation’s oldest city and this annual field trip has been a big part of the FLEC tradition for decades. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that of all the streets named after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the United States, he is known to have actually been to two of them, one of which is in St. Augustine? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visit our stories to test your knowledge on a couple more St. Augustine trivia facts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #MyFLEC #DistanceLearning #TriviaThursday...
