Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

Hello, I want to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year at M.C. Cash Elementary School.  My name is Ms. DiDonna and I am your child’s Special Education resource teacher.  This will be my tenth year of teaching at M.C. Cash and I look forward to working with your children this year.

The best way to reach me is by email. I check my email daily and can usually get back to you within 24 hours. You can also call me at work and leave a voicemail.  My email is and my phone number is 602-237-9120 ext 3259. Feel free to contact me anytime.

Lastly, I want to inform you and your child of my expectations for them this year. I try to get students to be responsible for their education.  This is always a work in progress for students. Being prepared for class, having their assignments completed, paying attention in class and following school rules are a few of the responsibilities that I expect students to work on. I will be here to help and guide them on their journey this year.  Attendance is critical to a child’s success.  Please have your children at school on time everyday.   I look forward to a great year.  Together we can make this a successful year.

I do not post my schedule on my website but if you are interested in the specific dates and times that your child receives special education services please do not hesitate to contact me!


Thank you,

Lauren DiDonna
