January 2017

Happy 2017!

Dear Van Brunt Families,

Welcome back! We are so excited to kick of 2017. I hope everyone enjoyed the extra time together over break and had an opportunity to do things you enjoy. It was wonderful hearing how our students and staff spent their time over the holiday break.

Just as many people set goals and resolutions in the new year, teachers will be working with students to set learning goals. These goals will be individual and will help move each learner forward in his/her education. We are looking forward to a very successful second half of the year. Please ask your child about their school goals, and more importantly, how they will reach those goals.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact me or your child's teachers if you every have questions or things you would like to discuss. This open communication will help us better meet the needs of all learners.
