First Quarter Director’s Wrap-Up: 2018-2019 School Year,

It was such a pleasure to welcome back both familiar and new faces for the start of our 2018-2019 school year. Our teachers put in a lot of time preparing engaging academic lessons and Social Thinking activities this quarter that will help each student not only progress academically, but also develop a strong sense of how to maintain their emotional well being while working towards their Big Life!

This year we will focus on the “Power of the Group”. KEYS staff will continue to promote and encourage expected and age-appropriate group behaviors throughout the day. Our hope is that with explicit instruction and guided practice in group situations our students will be able to independently maintain appropriate group discussions, behaviors, and interactions.

I look forward to watching each student learn and grow through this new school year, and I also encourage parents and caregivers to call if they have questions. I have included a list of important upcoming dates below:
