Dear P255Q Families, 


I am thrilled to write to you today in my new role as Parent Coordinator at our school. My name is Elizabeth Durand, and I am the mother of a twelve-year-old child on the Autism Spectrum. As many of you may know, I previously served as the President of the Parent Teacher Association for six years, and I am excited to continue working with you all in this new capacity. 


As Parent Coordinator, my primary goal is facilitating communication and collaboration between parents, teachers, and administrators. I am here to support you in any way I can, whether answering questions, providing resources, or helping to resolve concerns or issues. 


My main priority is ensuring that all families feel welcome and included in our school community. I understand that navigating the school system can be challenging, especially for families new to the educational system. Please know that I am here to listen and help you connect with the resources and support you need. 


I also want to thank the Parent-Teacher Association for their hard work and dedication over the years. As a former PTA President, I know firsthand how much time and energy goes into planning events, fundraisers, and other activities that benefit our school community. I look forward to continuing to work closely with the PTA and other parent groups to support our students and families. 


Finally, I encourage you all to stay connected with our school community. Sign up for the REMIND app or email distribution list if you haven’t yet. Let’s stay connected! Your involvement and engagement are critical to the success of our school. 

I look forward to working with you all in the coming year.
