Key Elementary

Weekly Family News | October 17, 2021

Staff Spotlight ~ Mrs. Finkelshteyn, Ms. Glanton, & Ms. Anderson

Mrs. Finkelshetyn joined the Key family during the 2018-19 school year as a self-contained teacher of students with disabilities! Mrs. F loves knitting, crocheting, reading, playing Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, and spending time with family and friends.

She is supported by two fabulous para-educators, Ms. Blair Glanton and Ms. Shanna Anderson (pictured below)! Together, this awesome trio provides engaging learning opportunities for their students! Since the beginning of this year, students have had exciting lessons such as matching number names and groups of objects on posters around the room while racing each other and doing science experiments to determine if students could use ingredients to make slime. Students enjoyed both activities!

Let's give a Key Kudos to Mrs. F, Ms. Blair, & Ms. Shanna for providing wonderful learning opportunities for their students! They are firm believers that, regardless of needs, all students deserve high-quality learning experiences!

School Picture Day is Wednesday, October 20th!

Every student will be photographed. If you would like to purchase a package, please follow this link and enter your email address. -----
