Our vision is to be a Healthy and Literate Community!
As I go through my day, assuming positive intent is often the only way to approach a situation. Sometimes that is hard to do! I know in my heart that we are all here because we believe in what we do and want the best for our students. May is a tough month for many reasons.
This has easily been one of the most challenging weeks of my career. I have to remember that, "this too shall pass" and sometimes I have to take things "one minute at a time." In the end I am here to support all of you and our students.
We often do not know what another is working through. We don't know exactly what our children, staff and families experience in their daily lives. My consejo (advise) for the remainder of the year is to be gentle with one another.
with love and appreciation, maite

Special Education Update
In addition, going forward next year I will be meeting with the special education staff one week prior to the IEP to review the plan, present levels and possible goals. This will add a a layer of support for the students and staff that we have not had in the past.
I look forward to working in collaboration with the special ed team as we work to support our students.
