Dear Learning Coaches,

You have done a great job getting started this year!

You may still be a bit overwhelmed with all of the materials to sort through and learning the ins and outs of the Online Learning school, but you will become a pro soon. I am here to help you. Please do not hesitate to kmail or call when you have questions.

Students, you will be learning new and exciting things each day. Some topics may be really easy for you to understand while others may take extra time and effort to master. I am here to help you learn along with your learning coach.

We are going to have a great year!

Mrs. Hammer
