Social Worker


Welcome Back! School is here and if you're like me, it's time to get back into a "school routine." I know it's hard to get the kiddos back into going to bed early and getting up early, but it's super important for their brains to have plenty of rest to get back into learning. Kids in the elementary age range need at least 11-12 hours of sleep per night. I know it's hard, because it's still summer, but getting to school late will not be acceptable if it's because we "got to bed late."

For those of you who are new to GIPS and West Lawn...Welcome! We are excited to have you. I am the School Social Worker and am available to all West Lawn families to help with any needs or concerns you may be having at home or with your student. I am hired by GIPS to be available to families and to be your advocate. For those of you who aren't new, I look forward to continuing to get to know you and your children better and please don't hesitate to contact me with any needs or concerns!

Some of you have received an invitation in the mail, and the rest of you will be, inviting you to attend grade level parent meetings over the next few weeks. These are just very informal "gab sessions" for you to be able to get questions answered about your child's school and what goes on behind the doors of West Lawn Elementary. I can't wait to see you all there!!

If your child is in need of school supplies or school clothes/shoes, please contact me as I have some of these things available for you.

I am at WL on Mondays and Wednesdays as well as Friday afternoons so please call or stop by even if it's just to say Hi!!

Welcome back Mustangs!!

¡Bienvenidos de regreso! Les clases han comenzado y si usted es como yo, es tiempo de regresar a la "rutina de escuela." Se que es dificil poner a los niños en cama temprano y levantarlos temprano, pero es super importante para que sus mentes tengan suficiente tiempo de descanso para regresar al aprendizaje. Niños de la edad primaria necesitan por lo menos 11-12 horas de sueño cada noche. Se que es dificil, por que todavia es veran, pero llegar a la escuela tarde no sera aceptable si es por que "nos dormimos tarde."

Pora todos aquellos que son nuevos a las Escuelas Pubicas de Grand Island (GIPS) y West Lawn...¡Bienvenidos! Estamos emocionados en tenerlos. Yo soy la trabajadora Social de la Escuela y estoy disponible a todas las familias de West Lawn para ayudarles con cualquier necesidad o preocupacion que tengan en casa o con su estudiante. Yo estoy empleada por GIPS para estar disponible a las familias y ser su defensor. Para todos aquellos que no son nuevos, yo espero verlos para continuar conociendo a usted y sus hijos mejor y ¡por favor no dude en contactarme con sus necesidades y preocupaciones!

Si su hijo necesita utiles para la escuela o ropa/zapatos, por favor contactese conmigo por que yo tengo algunas de estas cosas disponibles.

¡¡Estoy en WL los Lunes y miercoles al igual que los Viernes en las tardes asi que llameme o llega a saludarme!!

¡¡Bienvenidos de regreso Mustangs!!
