Parent Teacher Conferences
Included is the Parent Teacher Conference schedule. As a reminder, the conference schedule does not allow for a meeting with every parent /guardian during this time. Conferences are mainly scheduled by teacher request. Please know that if your child’s teachers do not reach out to schedule a conference at this time, it is our hope you’ll take this opportunity to celebrate your child’s year and successes so far! If needed, please reach out directly to your child's teachers to schedule a conference. All teachers are available throughout the entire year for a conference as needed and requested.

Native American Heritage Month
The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native Americans. What started at the turn of the century as an effort to gain a day of recognition for the significant contributions the first Americans made to the establishment and growth of the U.S., has resulted in a whole month being designated for that purpose.
Please stop by the LVMS Library to visit Mrs. Taylor-Flynn and get some great text recommendations for Native American Heritage Month.
