SPECIAL NEEDS CLASS NEEDS TA’S   Who would like to learn how to communicate and be with students with special needs?  If you want to contribute and be with our students, we can have more fun this year.  We can go swimming, bowling and have lots of activities that are fun!  It takes patience and compassion to work in our class, but we’d love to have help from TA’s during 2nd (PE), 3rd and 4th periods.  If not possible for the periods mentioned, please sign up for 6th period.  Thank you for considering helping students with special needs.

This year the meetings will be held in middle schools.  The most convenient locations include Los Cerros (9/25 at 9am) and Stone Valley (10/25 at 8:30).  The discussion will be focused on expanding opportunities for student, family and staff choice, improving student wellness, enhancing staff working conditions and ensuring that each student, employee and family feels safe and respected
