Welcome back to school parents, families, and students.

2012-2013 school years has started off with a bang. I have an exciting group of students in my class this year, and I know that we are going to have a lot of fun. I had the pleasure of meeting some of the parents and families this week. Thank you for stopping by the class. It is the joint effort of the parents and the teacher that allows our children to grow.

Please remember to check your child's homework everyday and sign their agenda to ensure that they have completed their work.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Mrs. Gorajia Montano
