Wishing you a Healthy and Happy Holiday Season!

I can hardly believe that the holiday break is upon us. As we head into this break, I am a little bit nostalgic looking back over the last few months. As Gigi and I said at the start of the school year, we feel like we have been on a roller coaster ride with ups, downs, and quick turns. We are so grateful to have had all of you along for the ride this semester. You are the best team ever! The members of the EL Team have proven to be united not only in serving students but each other as well. Please take the much-deserved time this holiday season to enjoy family and friends so that we can all come back rested and charged to continue the ride!

I am so proud to serve this exceptional group of special educators and look forward to continuing to work with you second semester, making positive changes for our exceptional learners!
