This is such an important time - we are building relationships, giving kids a fresh start, and planting the seeds for success. This picture may help you if you are already starting to get frustrated with one of your new littles... Since you still have over 170 days with them, it might be helpful to bear some of this in mind. You can do it! I know you will be successful with your icebergs, but we are here to support you if you need a "co-captain" for your ship!
We welcome new faces to our team! Tricia Booth has joined our special ed staff as a Life Skills aide and Donna Moriarty has replaced Nita Hassell as our ESL teacher. Please continue to keep Nita in your thoughts. She has been ill and needed to stay home for recuperation. Nancy Doty will be joining us as well within the next week. Nancy replaces Beth VZ to support our special ed inclusion kiddos.
