Scheduling the new year!

Wow! We are already half way through December! There are only 3 school days left in 2014! This school year is flying by so fast!

In such a short time we have accomplished so many things--each and every day I am in absolute awe at what our kids can do, how much they've grown, and how independent they are becoming! We are all so excited to hit the ground running in January. Though we don't have a field trip planned, our space unit is going to be out of this world! :)

Also coming up in 2015 is your child's annual IEP! As you know, our rockstar specialists serve many kids at many schools, so scheduling meetings can be quite a challenge. We try our best to have everyone there, so we can all celebrate and plan ahead together. This means that the SRC specialists and teachers get together every August and look at all the necessary meetings for the upcoming year, and try to tentatively schedule all of the meetings around each other. In the next few days, I will send an email (or note home in the communication journal) with the tentative date we hope to schedule your student's IEP meeting. Some of these meetings are several months away, but we try our best to plan ahead so our specialists can attend meetings for all their kids. Once you receive this email or note, please let me know as soon as possible whether or not this works for your family. Finding a new date can be complicated, so the sooner we know, the better!
