    Dear fourth grader and family,

    Welcome to Room 22C and home to our Inspiring Otters! My name is Shanda Denny and I am honored to be your 4th grade teacher this year at Opstad Elementary School. Growing up and as a young adult, I had the pleasure of living in the great states of New York, Michigan, Wyoming, and California but it wasn’t until I moved to Washington in 2000 that I truly felt like I had found my home. I have lived in walking distance to Opstad for nearly 17 years and have been involved in our Opstad community for the last five years as a parent, volunteer and teacher. I love our community and I feel very fortunate to be a part of it.

    As we gear up for the start of the school year, I would like to invite you to attend our Meet the Teacher event from 1:30-2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 28th. This event is an informal opportunity for us to meet and for you to see where your classroom is located before the start of the school year. Feel free to bring your school supplies to our room on Tuesday. If you have not already seen the school supply list, you can access it under Quick Links on the homepage of the Opstad website: svsd410.org/Domain/11.  In addition to the items on the list, your child is welcome to bring a water bottle to school to leave in our classroom. If you are unable to attend Meet the Teacher, you are welcome to bring your supplies on the first day of school. Our school year begins Wednesday, August 29th at 9:05 a.m.

    I am very excited about our upcoming year together and I cannot wait to work with all of you to make it a year full of wonder, growth, hard work and fun! If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at: dennys@svsd410.org.


    Looking forward to meeting you,                                 

    Shanda Denny
