Welcome to a new school year of virtual learning! I know this is a time like no other, but we will make the best of it while having fun! I am very excited to meet you all online and begin a new page in our academic learning. We may be new to distance learning, but we are not new to learning! Let's stay positive and bear with Ms. Tambu as we navigate distance learning together this year! Please stay safe and join class via Zoom on
Canvas.
Stay Safe! 
Ms. Tambu
