Parent Teacher Conferences

PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held October 9th and 11th from 2:30-7:30 p.m. This is a special time for you to continue to get to know your child’s teacher and to learn about your child’s progress. The report cards will not be handed out during the conferences. Although report cards, communication folders, phone calls and notes have their advantages, they cannot replace the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher in person. Check your child’s backpack for further information. If you find you have scheduled an appointment you are unable to make, please contact the school immediately to reschedule. We look forward to seeing you at the conferences!
