Back to School

Welcome back to a brand new school year!  This year our school motto is “We are all winners…Making it a championship year!”  I have worked with some of your children before, while others may be new to me this year.  As case manager, I will be working with your child based on his or her individual needs as written in the IEP.  I am fortunate enough to have Mrs. Littlejohn on my team and together we will be working hard to help our students reach their goals.  Open house is on Thursday, but if I don’t see you then I will be ready to meet on the first day of school.
