Folsom Weekly Update

December 5-13

Message from Dr. Mazzoni

Welcome Mrs. Amie Mauro to Folsom! Mrs. Mauro was recently approved as the long-term substitute for the basic skills instruction position. Mrs. Mauro is a graduate of Roger Williams University and has 11 years of teaching experience. Mrs. Mauro will start in the upcoming days! Please welcome her to Folsom once you see her around the school.


Calling all regular education teachers to the S.O.A.R. breakfast next week! We are making a change to the S.O.A.R. breakfast next week by involving classroom teachers to the event. On Wednesday, December 11th, we will recognize K-4 students with a certificate and picture with myself and the classroom teacher. We will do the same on Thursday, December 12th for students in grades 5-8. The S.O.A.R. breakfast begins promptly at 8:45 am in the cafeteria. All classrooms have a staff member that is scheduled to their class during this time or on prep period making this possible.
