With 2020 behind us, we can look at the new year as a chance to use all we learned over the fall to further our learning. I am really excited to be able to use the new resources we have found and continue our learning. We now know that even though it is difficult, we can learn in a remote setting.
I will continue checking in with kids and families to make sure you have what you need for a productive work environment and appropriate materials.
Here's to a new year and our continued growth as learners!
I look forward to seeing the 5th graders during the graduation drive by ceremony!
Usually my services tend to end a week before the end of school. Because of the unique situation we have and that we had a prolonged period where there was no new learning going on, I am continuing my services up to the end of the school year.
Progress reports will go home on June 18th and will look different than usual. There will not be data points but more of a narrative with input from parents, gen ed teachers and support staff. I will be available to answer any questions you might have about progress and what next year will look like during the summer.

The UW Autism Center, The Arc of King County and Ryther are sponsoring the following online meeting this Thursday. I am going to guess that this could turn into a regular event if they get enough interest.

If you identify as Autistic, you are welcome here.
If you are Autistic and would like to attend with your Autistic child, please RSVP for one adult and one child.
We have capacity to host about 10 people for this first meetup, and we’d like to have a good ratio of Autistic adults to non-adults. If we receive more RSVPs than we have room for, we will start a waiting list.

If you would like assistance with academics or have any questions, please email me and we can set up a time to conference. I have been using zoom for meetings and it has been very helpful.
Hello Families, I wanted to let you know that I will try to be present at your child's conference. If I am unable to attend due to a schedule conflict and you would like to speak to me about your child's progress, please let me know and we can schedule another time to meet.
I am moving to a quieter office. My new room will be Rm 152 across from the downstairs Kindergarten bathroom.
