Thank you to Becky Bills for quickly getting a schedule together to cover all of the needs of our students! She will begin on Monday of this week seeing kids on that schedule. We will have a sub in the aide position until we can hire someone.

Thank you to Linda Ward and Deby Stephenson for subbing in the computer lab and in Dinh's room respectively. We appreciate your help!

Thank you to each of our classroom teachers for eating in the cafeteria this last week while the kids learned the routines and expectations. We are in the process of looking for two more lunch monitors, but will continue to always have one to two teachers on duty in the cafeteria as well. The relationship and expectations of the teacher just cannot be replaced by our monitors, no matter how much we like them! If you know of someone interested in being a monitor, please let Mr. Nuss know.
