    Happy Memorial Day and the start of our last week of school!!!  You have done such an amazing job getting through the end of the school year and remote learning :)  I hope that you have a fun last few days of school and enjoy every single minute of summer vacation.  Can't wait to see you back at South Elementary School in August but for now enjoy some sunshine and well-deserved free time!!!

    Happy Monday- speech friends and families :) 

    So the end of our school year will not be what anyone had expected or planned but we will all work together to make the very best of it.  And we will make sure to plan for an epic Speech "Dojo point- Prize Party" when we get back to South for the 2020-2021 school year!!!

    I hope that you had a lovely weekend.  Check you emails for this week's "penny board" speech assignments.  Let me know if you have any questions or need any support to complete the activities.  Miss you all so much!

    Spring is definitely in the air and hopefully will be here to stay soon!  This week speech students will be enjoying some nature themed lessons on their individualized penny boards.  Hope everyone has a great week :)

    This week speech students will be receiving emails from their case managers containing individualized Special Education Penny Boards.  These Penny boards contain the week's lesson that will coordinate with IEP goals being targeted for the week.  Please contact Mrs. Ferretti if you have any issues accessing the documents or questions about the assignments.

    Dear Parents, Guardians, Caregivers and Students,

    We are all traveling on a new path at this time.  Missing school and routines is never easy for any of us, but I fully intend to support the speech and language students as best I can during this time.  I will be providing intervention through the possibilities of email, google documents, and zoom. I am available to students/parents via email (jmferretti@d47.org) during the regular school day hours (Monday's and Tuesday's for South Elementary School). It may be a bit before I can get back to you if I am working with other students.

    I will also try to make additional free resources available to students and families.  These may or may not apply to your student needs, but I am making them readily available for families in hopes that it helps make your time at home easier :)  Thanks as always for your continued support, flexibility, and collaboration :)
