TE ACHER SPOTLIGHT
Taylor Wingo was born and raised in Redlands, California. She graduated from Grand Canyon University with a B.S. in Psychology. During college and after graduating, she has been working as a respite and habilitation provider for clients on the Autism Spectrum. After being in Arizona for college, she has decided to move here and pursue a career that will eventually blend education and psychology. She wants to continue making an impact in people’s lives by entering the field of education. Outside of school, she enjoys hanging out with friends, walking her playful puppy, playing volleyball, and spending time with family.
EARLY MORNING DROPOFF
As a reminder, we provide supervision for students beginning at 7:30 a.m., thirty minutes prior to the start of the school day. Many students are being dropped off unattended prior to 7:30 a.m. and participating in increasingly dangerous behavior. For the safety of all, please keep your children with you in the vehicle until the school doors open at 7:30 a.m. and proper supervision is available. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Carpool safety: Please keep your students' arms and bodies inside your vehicle (including the sun roof) at all times in the carpool lanes until it is time for them to exit your vehicle.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
There is still time to register for a club!
FINGERPRINT UPDATE
Great Hearts has purchased a new system for background checks of our visitors and our volunteers. The system should be live by the end of January. There will be additional information as soon as we have a date. We thank you for your patience and understanding while we wait for the new system.
