Meet the Teacher will take place on Monday, September 14th from 3-4pm.  If you would like to come say hello, I will be in room 307 of the elementary wing.  Please note that health protocols are in place, and a non-medical mask is required to be worn in the building for the duration of your visit.


Please ensure that a clean mask is brought to school every day.  Students have been doing a good job at this so far this year.
