August 30

WELCOME to a great year!

The 20-21 school year is going to be one to remember, for its uniqueness as well as all of our flexibility.

School officially begins August 31. You will hear from your child’s classroom teacher by phone. I will be in contact with you as well this week to touch base and let you know what special services look like this year.

I am so excited to talk with you and see your child both on the computer AND in person in a safe way:)

Hello parents and students! I am going to be setting up a google classroom to help me communicate with my students and provide some learning while we are home over the next few weeks.
