It is hard to believe that the first quarter of the 2018-2019 school year is over! Most of the students in our class had known each other from last year which means that buttons could be pushed but bonds were also strengthened. While we work on our reading and math skills the student are keen scientists who have enjoyed the deductive process and hands on exploration in science. We are continuing to build our communication, conflict resolution, and coping skills in this class. I am proud of the students’ ability to express their needs and emotions as this will benefit them in interactions with other students and adults in their future. I hope I do not speak for myself as I am looking forward to more growth to come from the students, staff, and myself!
