Welcome Back Eagle Families!
Happy New Year and welcome back! We are excited to have students back at school and hope that you all had a restful and rejuvenating break. As we jump into a new year, we are continuing our focus on PBL, Social-Emotional wellbeing of staff and students, and inclusion. This new semester brings Access (for our language learners) Testing, new PBL projects and a focus on learning and academics. I am also still committed to focusing on student’s first, social-emotional support and open and transparent communication. I value you, our community and the student’s at Asbury! I can’t wait to see what this new year brings!
