Dear Parents and Guardians,

Fall is my favorite time of year: the decorations, the warm beverages, blankets, sweaters, sports and just an overall feeling of coziness!  The students in my groups have been talking about their sports, decorating and getting ready for pumpkin patches!

I will be sending out draft ALP information to each family next week.  Please read over the goals for your child and let me know you have received and agree to the goals.   I will use your reply as permission to e-sign the ALP in the official system.  If you do not agree with the proposed goals we can make changes. 

I have been working on updating the Franktown Elementary GT Website.  You will find resources for you as a parent and for your child.  If there is a topic or link you would like to see added let me know! 

Please feel free to reach out to me via email at if you have any questions or would like to connect.

Thank you for sharing your kids with me!  We are learning and growing together every day.

Warm regards,

Rebecca Shields
