Abbi Dunning and Nancy Schlesinger at Sandburg - and ALL of our nurses - thank you, thank you, thank you! While there isn't a soul in the school system that has an easy job during a pandemic, there are many things that make it extra hard to be a school nurse right now. You all are wonderful and know that we appreciate you!!

Huge SHOUT OUT to Ann Desens, Emerson Elementary's Advanced Learning teacher! Thank you for your willingness to step in and help with FastBridge testing and Targeted Skills Practice lessons for AL and more. Your expertise is so valuable especially when classroom teachers are feeling the stress to focus on students whose reading skills are less independent.
