WELCOME BACK!  I hope you all had a wonderful summer as I know I did.  The first day of school seemed to go well.  I had a chance to work with some of our kindergartners today during their phase-in.  I also had a chance to see many of my students at lunch and in the hallways.  I will be continuing to conduct screenings on our kindergarten students through next week.  I will be touching base with all of my students next week.  I have some great things planned this year including several social skills groups, a classroom language circle and language group for students in Mrs. Shingleton's room, intervention groups, 1-1 and group therapy, and collaboration time. I welcome my student teacher Mallory Logan, who will be with us until December.
