Hello,

I am excited to start this new school year!  It is going to be different than any other school year we have ever experienced!  There are going to be changes and challenges, but we will make the best of each situation! 

The first two days we will be getting to know each other, becoming familiar with the new campus, reviewing procedures, figuring out our schedules, and setting up notebooks.

It is going to be a busy start with a lot of information shared!  Be ready......and welcome back!!
