*ATTENTION PARENTS OF CHILDREN WHO RECEIVE SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY: 

Starting Monday, April 27th, the Minersville Area School District will be moving to "Planned Instruction"

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY:
Starting Monday, you will begin receiving assignments on Class Dojo, so please check at least weekly. The assignments will be sent out every Monday and will be due by Friday of the same week. Some will be easily accessed through an online site or some can be printed (if able). Printing is not mandatory, you can do them without printing as well with paper and pencil.

These assignments are things your child has been working on all year long with me in therapy sessions. I will be available for questions and interactions throughout school hours each day. Feel free to send me pictures or videos of your child doing the activity to increase our interaction.

On top of these assignments, I will also be posting a weekly themed video and lesson on my website that you can watch with your child to practice his/her speech and language goals.

YOU WILL FIND EVERYTHING UNDER THE "PLANNED INSTRUCTION ASSIGNMENTS AND INFORMATION" TAB

I know this is very different than what we're used to, and I look forward to the days I am working face-to-face with your child, but until then, let's enjoy this time and make the best of it!

Please reach out to me via Class Dojo messenger or email at jcappel@battlinminers.com

*ATTENTION PARENTS OF CHILDREN WHO RECEIVE SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY: 

To keep your kiddos on top of their communication skills, I have provided resources for articulation (speech sounds), language (following directions, answering questions, expressing thoughts, etc.), stuttering/fluency, and much more in the tab labeled "SCHOOL CLOSING RESOURCES" to the left. Just click on that tab and you will be taken to a new page with multiple resources. Click on the topic you'd like to choose and it will download the attachment to the bottom left of your screen. 

I have also made a list of free websites that have everything from educational materials, virutal tours of zoos, museums, etc., as well as gardening and exercise with kids. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at jcappel@battlinminers.com

 Hang in there!

STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I hope you and your child had a wonderful summer vacation!  My name is Johnna Cappel, and I will be your child’s Speech-Language Therapist this year at Minersville Area School District. I wanted to take this time to briefly introduce myself to you.  This is my second year as a Speech-Language Therapist. I received both my Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from East Stroudsburg University. I have a passion for assisting children in gaining knowledge and confidence in communication and “finding their voice”.  In my therapy room, I enjoy using a variety of activities and strategies to encourage your child to communicate at his/her highest level, while still having fun!

 

During the school year, your child will be given a speech folder. Inside, you will find one side will be labeled for items that should remain in the folder and the other side will be labeled for items that need to be worked on or signed by you. I will send home various activities for your child to complete with your assistance in order to practice good speech and language skills outside of school.  These activities will all contain familiar content for your child, as they will be the main targets of his/her therapy in school. Practice at home is intended to be quick and easy to ensure your child reaches his/her highest potential (no stress!). If you or your child are ever unsure about how to complete any home practice activity, please write me a note on the top of the paper and send it back. Your child will earn a class “dojo” point for completed and signed homework, following the rules in my classroom, working hard, etc.

 

As your child’s parent/guardian, you are considered an important part of our team at Minersville Area School District because you are the one who knows your child best.   I will contact you as needed regarding your child’s progress.  I encourage you to communicate with me through Class DOJO, notes, email, or by phone. You can reach me by calling the district at (570)-544-1400-ext. 3222, or sending me an email at jcappel@battlinminers.com

 

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with your child! I am so excited to begin this school year in such a wonderful school district!

 

 

Sincerely,

Miss Johnna Cappel, M.S., CCC-SLP
