         Welcome to school year 2017-2018! It is with great excitement that we welcome you to this school year. Please know that plans have been made that will challenge your student academically, functionally, personally, and socially. Your student will move between two classrooms to give diversity in teaching styles. Our classes have embraced the Personalized Learning concept and will work collaboratively with general education courses to acquire knowledge through various "hands-on" experience and projects. Your student will also receive transition and vocation training in the community and on school based work sites. Additionally, our Partner's Club students will support the class in and out of LHS. We are planning several fun filled, educational trips with our students that will enrich our time together.
     
         I am looking forward to spending a wonderful year of learning and relationship building with your student. I believe that success in education can be accomplished if the student feels comfortable, enjoys being here, and has fun at the same time. Feel free contact me by e-mail at alan.couch@henry.k12.ga.us or through your student's daily agenda. Let's have a great year!
