Please check your emails for the parent/guardian high school transition input link so you can let us know additional information as we plan for the March 29th high school transition conferences. On this survey, you will be able to convey:

    • time of day that works best?
    • in-person or Zoom?
    • any updates from you regarding high school?

    I am starting to go out to English classes for my first round of lessons (see above on the lessons infogram. :) Please keep checking back on this site...I will provide recordings of some of the lessons for your reference.

    Thank you for your continued partnership!
