Bagley Monday Message

Bagley Families,

We want to extend a huge welcome back to Ms. Parker, our Intermediate Distinct Special Education teacher. She has been out on leave since November for medical treatment and we are so grateful to have her back with us again! Thank you to Amy Weaver and our entire Special Education department for stepping up to support our students while Ms. Parker was out. We have such a fantastic and collaborative team.

This week all SPS schools with staff openings for the 23-24 School Year will host their first round of interviews for next year’s positions. We will be hosting interviews for our teacher vacancy in the Primary Distinct classroom and an additional teacher added to our Special Education department in the Extended Resource role. In addition, our wonderful Social Worker, Ms. Pulkkinen, is retiring this school year and we are interviewing for her position as well. We have a large crew of staff that will be on our interview teams this week to find a great candidate for hiring.

Every Monday teachers will show the Nectar News to share upcoming events, appreciations, and to educate and celebrate varied cultures and school expectations. Check your email/texts for the link.
