Dear Students:

I am anxiously awaiting news about the start of the new school year. Normally, I do not feel anxious at all in the month of June, but this year I am uncertain of how "back to school" will feel. Will we all be required to wear personal protective equipment such as gloves or masks? Will we be more self-aware, aware of others' spaces and our own personal space? Will we practice hand washing more faithfully? I have already trained myself to slap my own hand away when I feel the need to touch my own face. I am trying to adapt, but I am uncertain about the start of school. Will we carry-on with remote learning as we have in the past? I guess we will just have to wait and see, which is difficult for us to do!
In the meantime, I hope that you are enjoying your summer, and I look forward to seeing you ALL back at school in August! (Fingers Crossed)
Much Love,

Hello Everyone,

So, by now you know that the word is: we are having school, in person!

Though this school year may be odd, interesting, and present new challenges, we will conquer it together. Wash your hands. See you soon!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone on August 3rd!

school timeIt was good to see everyone this week! Getting into a routine made things feel more normal. There are still improvements to make with virtual learning, but you all are doing well adjusting to the social distancing efforts in place. 


This school year is different, but I am thankful that we are able to be together at school. Even with all of the social distancing measures in place, we are able to focus and learn together, even those of us who are learning from the virtual world. Let's all just keep up the good work. The holidays are right around the corner.

With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas fast approaching, we are heading quickly into 2021! This year, the year of quarantine has brought many challenges to our families, communities, and schools. The way that students are learning is unlike any other time in history. Our youth have made great strides in the digital world with their abilities to create digital artifacts and communicate with educators and peers about education using different digital platforms. Through all of the uncertainties, students and families rise above challenges to find success. I am glad to be here with my fellow Vikings.

I read somewhere, "Now we really can say that hindsight is 2020." As time marches forward, we also need to focus on the future. In approximately 5 months, my students will leave me to go to high school! The time for 8th grade has passed them by, quickly. Here's to an awesome 2nd semester!



MLK Jr. Day- 2 weeks away- no school.
We could all find something positive to conclude from his lessons.
