Dear Joaquin Miller Families and Staff,
It was so hard to miss the first week of school, but I heard that the students, teachers, and my incredible office staff did a fantastic job getting the year off to a smooth start! My mother is now out of the hospital and on the mend. I am really glad I was able to make it out to Illinois to take care of her and to see my 96 and 92 year old grandmothers as well.
I truly appreciate all of the kind emails and texts I received from many of you. Your love and support was felt over 1700 miles away! I am excited to see all of my "kiddos", staff, and parents in the coming week!
