At the end of the school year we had not yet filled the .5 Kindergarten and Grade 4 positions.

Sophia Hanson comes to us as a graduate of the Gustavus Adolphus Education Program. Her energy and excitement will be an awesome match for the kindergarten students. She will be teaching AM Kindergarten at Folwell and PM Kindergarten at Bamber Valley. Her classroom will be in what has been the music room.

We have also hired Audrey LeVan as the new 4th grade teacher. Audrey served as the Gifted Services teacher at Folwell for grades 3-5 four years ago. The last three years she has been teaching 5th grade at Franklin Elementary. She already knows many of the Folwell staff and is anxious to begin collaborating daily with Mrs. Larson.

Paul Tessmer-Tuck is going to be serving as the Long-Term Sub for Mrs. Fix's maternity leave. He will begin the school year in her classroom and the position will end on February 15.  

Since we will be having kindergarten using the music room this coming school year, you are probably wondering where music is going to be located. Music is going to be sharing the Art room. They meet on different days so we have developed a plan for setting up the room for Art for two days in a row and then transition it to a music room for the next four days in a row. 

Take care and enjoy your family.
