The special education department would like to welcome our school family back to class! We would also like to welcome two new teachers: Ms. Drennan, who teaches the lower grade class for students with Autism, and Mrs. Davis, who teaches the general special ed class for 3rd and 4th graders. These first few weeks we will be focusing on getting back into our school routines. Also, we are always practicing our social skills and learning how to treat each other with love and respect. This school year we are all about keeping a growth mindset. We know that with dedication and hard work we can experience incredible growth. The lower grades are working on addition, subtraction, number bonds and place value. The higher grades are tackling decimal place value and writing mixed numbers in word form. In ELA we are always working on improving our reading comprehension. We will be doing close reads all year, getting lots of practice identifying the main idea and key details. We will also be putting much effort into improving our writing skills. As long as we keep positive this will be an awesome school year!
