833 Young Scholars

Nurturing Potential, Sustaining Support

October 2020

Happy October!


We made it! Wow, September was a huge month of learning for everyone. Whether it was adjusting to Hybrid and VLA, finding new ways to balance home and school life - including time on and off technology - , or trying to stay on top of the many other challenges that seem to keep coming our way, this first month of school was a true character builder.


In this month's newsletter, you'll find resources to help support you and your Young Scholar as you both manage learning during this global pandemic. There will be resources just for parents, others for students, and a fun activity for you both!


And, as always, reach out if you have any questions or need help navigating through this new way of learning.

Young Scholars works with students, families and schools to increase...

About Me

Hi All!


My name is Colleen Redmond, and I am thrilled to work as the 833 Young Scholars advocate and lead teacher.

I'm a mom, a wife, small business owner, avid biker (the pedal kind), book enthusiast, and beekeeper. Plus, on top of all of that, I have the happy job of implementing and growing the Young Scholars program here in 833!

I've been lucky enough to teach in South Washington County Schools for over twenty-five years and have had the incredible opportunity to be a part of the lives of so many students and families over the years.

Now, as part of Young Scholars, I have the honor of working with the amazing staff, students, and families throughout 833. I am so very excited to work with and support you and your Young Scholar. I can't wait to see where the journey takes us!
