Welcome Parents and Students- Class of 2023!  I am excited to be your literacy teacher this year.  Please use this website to find out what assignments we are completing, what my expectations are, and the important dates that are coming up. I will update it once a week, so check back at any day to find out what's going on in literacy.

Here is how you can contact me throughout the year:
  • My email address is: sjbudaj@aps.k12.co.us. I check email twice a day and will return any emails within 24 hours.
  • My voicemail number is 303-326-3559.  I check my voicemail once a day and will return phone calls within 24 hours.
  • The school's main phone number is 303-695-3559.  While the secretary will not interrupt my teaching, she can get a hold of me if there is an emergency.

Online Tools
Throughout the school year, we will use several different online tools and websites.  In this section, I will give you links to those resources.

We will be using Google Drive A LOT!  Here is that link: googleaurorak12.org
Students will use their student ID number for their sign in, and their password is their first name.
On their Google account, students will also be able to access my Google Classroom, where several of their assignments are housed. When you get a chance, check it out.
