Thank You


Now that school is out we wanted to give a quick shout out to the elementary teachers who welcome us into their rooms every week making Group by Group possible.


IMG_0283Our week starts with a sensory group in Ms. Joi’s room. The ladies in this room are so full of enthusiasm and laughter. They also have great ideas and suggestions for our groups.

Thank you ladies for helping us keep the “fun” in learning!





IMG_9629As Ms. Tonja retired at the end of the school year, our time in her room has been a little bittersweet. We will miss her intuitive knowledge and sensory insights.

Thank you to her staff and volunteers who help make it a great sensory group every week.





IMG_9168Our last sensory group class is Ms. Maria’s. It has been a year of contrasts with a sad goodbye to our dear Ms. Nita and a joyful welcome to Maria’s beautiful baby.


Thank you ladies for everything!






IMG_0241We could not do the language group without the ladies in Ms. Robin’s room. They are up for whatever activity we have planned and are great at helping us adapt things so that each student can participate. This is also our go to classroom for props and costumes—–Robin has an amazing array of things in her closet.

Thank you ladies for making it a great year!






IMG_0082Jeannie just wanted to thank her wonderful staff and volunteers for making the fine motor groups a blast week after week.


I also want to thank Ms. Joy (Occupational Therapist) and Ms. Cara (Speech Therapist).  They are the glue that holds us all together. Without there planning and preparations each week the blog would not be possible. Thanks also to Ms. Cleaver (teacher) for her help.  My thanks to everyone and I hope you all have a great summer. See you in August for another great year with Group By Group.
