Summer Resources

Happy Summer!

As we find ourselves winding down the school year I wanted to take a second to pat all of you parents, grandparents, step-parents, guardians, siblings, etc. on the back for a job well done this last half of the year. You've done spectacular! I enjoy serving the kids and families all year long even if it is virtually through my new text/call line! Here are some updates about that availability:

Starting Friday, May 29th, my text and call line will not be readily or frequently accessed through the summer and up to the week prior to the start of the school year. Students and family members will be encouraged to reach out to the resources below for assistance. Please check the school app/website and my personal website for the most up-to-date information and resources.
