And we shout out to Karina Archibald, our early childhood admin assistant, for coordinating, tracking and supporting the planning of these important meetings.

Thank you all of the care and connection that you provided and will continue to provide to our new students and families!

Thinking about paperwork, June and Summer!

Whew! Let's think about June. I know. it is getting closer! Every June we work to complete IEPs that are due or coming due. This year our school year our students continue through June 22nd. It is difficult to complete and wrap up all paperwork prior to leaving when meetings are held later in the year. Look at your calendar and consider planning IEP meetings as early as you can. This will allow you to wrap up other components and finalize them in June and support your students at the end of their school year. Connect with your Instructional Coordinator as you plan for IEPs that are due in June!

Want Extra Hours this Summer?

Thank you to those that have already expressed interest in supporting this great work for students!

We are planning for Recovery Services and we want to recruit you! We are recruiting Paraedcuators, learning specialists, Motor Team, SLPs, ICs - for a robust summer program. If you are interested in supporting the summer program, email us!
