Thank You!

Thank you all for the warm welcome to Athens City Schools. I enjoyed spending time in all four elementary schools last week. If I have not met you in person yet, I look forward to doing so in the very near future. Please do not hesitate to email, text, or phone me for support. My contact info can be found at the bottom of this newsletter.

My schedule for the remainder of January is as follows:

Mondays- Central Office Meeting Day

Tuesdays- AES (a.m.) / CES (p.m.)

Wednesdays- District Data Meetings & Training Sessions

Thursdays- Training or Open for Teacher Appointments

Fridays- JNES (a.m.) / BES (p.m.)

I look forward to learning with you!

Have a great week!
