Don't Forget to WASH YOUR HANDS WITH SOAP! Water and soap is always better than hand sanitizer even after recess!

FYI: DUE TO ASBESTOS REMOVAL, the building will not be open to ANYONE MAY 23rd-May30th. Admin and secretaries will be working at another school. Floor waxing dates will be coming soon.

Sometimes this time of year when IEP's are all due, grade cards are due, and children seem to know summer is around the corner, you just need to watch something to make you laugh and smile ....

A Pep Talk from Kid President to You

Changing Positions and Rooms for 2015-2016

  • WIlde's Kindergarten room will move upstairs to room 205
  • Huntley will be moving to Suzy's old classroom and teaching 2 sections of ECSE
  • Jenna will remain in her room. She will be teaching 2 sections of ECSE with intensive services focused on compliance, language development, and social engagement. We will be using Discrete Trial Training (DTT) to develop these skills. In order to provide the level of intense intervention needed for the identified students, there will be significantly lower teacher to student ratio in order to provide these services. Jenna and aides will be receiving additional training to provide these services.
  • Glassner will have a 1/2 day ECSE class in the afternoon and be serving as an iterate teacher in the morning. Until her caseload is full in the morning she will be assisting the evaluation team. Her room will remain the same.
