It's time...to go BACK TO SCHOOL!
Yours in Education,
Jocelyn Young, Principal
Let's Meet the Teacher!
This year, our teachers are really going to focus on the importance of Social and Emotional learning and adjustment of the students. In addition, there will be an increased focus on establishing a classroom community that is inclusive and family oriented. These students will be spending a lot of time with each other and it is of the utmost importance that they feel that they are a part of a greater community filled with people that support them as well as their academic, social and emotional success.
You should soon receive additional correspondence from your child's teacher regarding the virtual Meet the Teacher event. If you have NOT heard from the teacher by Tuesday afternoon, please feel free to send them an email. Our staff directory can be found on our school webpage. https://ktes.fortmillschools.org/
