19 August 2016

Dear Sophomores and Parents,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  It is going to be a fun year collaborating 
with each other, learning new skills you will use, and reading entertaining and 
thought-provoking literature that both you and I choose.

My husband Carlo and I welcomed our little girl, Celia, on August 8th, and I will 
be on maternity leave until January 30th.  You will be in excellent hands with
Mrs. Amy Cheney- Seymour until that time.  She has a great deal of teaching 
experience including in her own English and history classroom at 
National Sports Academy. 

I wish you all a strong start to the school year, and I look forward to getting to 
know you and working with you when I return. Keep an open mind, work
hard and remember that when you feel challenged by the work and are 
feeling stuck, that is when the real learning occurs.

All the best,

Ms. Spicer
