Thank you for all of your preparation for our parent/teacher conferences!

The last couple of days have been long ones, and I know how much energy and effort our teachers invested to ensure that we were ready for our families. Next week I encourage you to reach out to any families that needed to reschedule. We also have the meeting times for our Arabic-speaking families on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Please remember to give Darlene your conference attendance report by February 24.

In addition to smooth conference days, the PTO Scholastic Book Fair was a tremendous success! The total sales from the two days of the fair was $3,700. That's a lot of new books in the homes of our students! :)
