Distance Learning Opportunities

Hello!  I hope that all of you and your families are staying safe and healthy. I am missing being in the classroom with all of the students.  I realize this is a difficult time for all of us, but we are a strong community and I know that together we can get through this and emerge even stronger than we were previously! Please know that I am committed to teaching your children and helping them through this. As before, I am available through text, e-mail, and phone call. For those who may not have it, my cell phone number is 815-751-6891 and my e-mail addresses are stacey.denbraven@rps205.com (district) and staceydb524@yahoo.com (personal).
