Welcome

It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over and the beginning of a new school year is upon us. For
myself not only a new year but a new school community. Being here only a short time, I am still getting
acclimated. Each day, I am learning more about the school culture and community. I am excited to begin
our work together here at Tanager Place School.
On behalf of the entire Tanager Place School staff, I wish you a very warm welcome! At Tanager Place
School we take great pride in our school and do everything possible to fulfill the individual needs of each
student. We strive to develop the entire child and we do that through supporting them in their
social/emotional needs as well as challenging them academically so they can reach their full potential. We
believe that open lines of communication are key to student success and when the school and families
collaborate together, the children will benefit. We all have a common goal and that is to provide what is
best for all children. Let us all work together so Tanager Place School can continue to be AWESOME!
Sincerely,

Anne Faber
Associate Director, Special Services
Tanager Place School Principal
