- Did you ever wonder what teachers do with the extra 2 hrs on late arrival day?  They become the students!  Thank you, parents, for keeping the kids for a couple of extra hours.  Our goal is to continue to grow as learners to provide the best possible opportunities for our students.  Today's topic of professional development was Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and our teachers were listening, discovering, creating, engaging, collaborating, and more.  It's exciting to find new and creative ways to navigate the barriers to learning so that each and every student can learn.
