Principal News

Hello NDE Families!

 

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!  We hope you and your children enjoyed the summer, and are as excited as we are for school to start!  We are looking forward to welcoming your children back to school on the first day, Wednesday, August 29, 2018.   

 

We have an incredible year ahead, with so much to look forward to!  We are excited to welcome the following new staff to North Davis this year:

 

WELCOME our new Special Education Staff:

Katie Moseanko -- Resource Teacher (full-time)

Kimberly Harris -- Resource Teacher (full-time)

 

WELCOME to our new school counselor, Maria Cook!  She will be here Mondays - Wednesdays.  Alicia Perry will be returning, and increasing her time with us to three full days, Wednesdays – Fridays.  

 

WELCOME (BACK!) to Kristen Pickus!  Kristen will be joining us as our new first grade teacher, job-sharing with Kelly Valdepeña.

 

WELCOME to the following teachers who aren’t new to teaching or DJUSD, but new to NDE:  

Christina Cole (Science), Pam Disney (6th grade), Hilary Spence (6th grade), and Nancy Sanchez (Band).

 

WELCOME to five student teachers:  Kory Choe, Julia Gonzalez, Savannah Vershay-Taylor, Sydney Yee, and Liz Hubbard; and one school psychologist intern, Tiffany Chen.

 

There are a couple of staff members who have decided to move on over the summer.  We wish you both well in your new adventures:

Congratulations to Lynn Aiello, Library Technician, who will be retiring the first week of September. Thank you, Lynn, for your many years of service to NDE and our students.  You will be missed!

 

Congratulations to Yuliya Pankova, Para-educator, Reading, who has accepted a teaching position in special education.  We appreciate your time with us and all you did in our Reading program, Yuliya!  You will be missed!

 

 

Your Next Steps

As you know, many of the programs we cherish at NDE are made possible by the work of parent volunteers and the PTA’s fundraising efforts.  We need your help! The PTA executive board has worked hard this summer to streamline some processes to make things easier for all parents.  It is my hope that you click on the link below and take a few moments to:

1.    Set your Student Directory Options

2.    Select how and when you are able to help out with school events

3.    Join the PTA!

Thank you, families, for your continued support and partnership.  School and home communication is key to student success, so please reach out to your child’s teacher or to me with any questions you have as we start the year.

Please like our Facebook page, stay tuned for our new website (existing website is still up and running), and check out our new School/PTA combined newsletter coming to your inbox starting Monday!

I look forward to re-connecting with all of you, and especially with your children.

Sincerely,

Sarah Roseen

Principal, North Davis Elementary School
