I'm here if you need me!

I know it can be hard to check in on how your child is doing, especially this year with social distancing, health regulations, and our super speedy dismissal process. I do not get to see many of you very often, but if you ever want to check in or need anything, please let me know. You can email me or send me a message in Class Dojo, and we can set up a time to meet in person, or Zoom. Our Parent Teacher Conferences will be a great time to connect, but if anything comes up before then, I'm always here for you and your child.
