Grade 8 Staffing Update

Dear Families of Team 8-2 Students,

As you may know, Mrs. Monica Swain, Team 8-2 English teacher, ¬†gave birth to her third child, a daughter, in June right after school ended. Mrs. Swain will return from her maternity leave on Monday, September 19. Mrs. Maggie Hartnett, a veteran teacher and long-time in-house substitute at Oak Hill, began the year in Mrs. Swain’s place. Consequently, students are familiar with Mrs. Hartnett. Mrs. Swain left a detailed curriculum map for these nine days to ensure that students received the desired introduction to the expectations for this class. Special education co-teacher, Mrs. Laura Boehm, and grade 8-1 English teacher, Ms. Maureen McCann, serve wonderful as supports to Mrs. Hartnett during this time. Should you have any questions for Mrs. Harnett, she can be reached at maggie_hartnett@newton.k12.ma.us

Sincerely,
Eva M. Thompson
