Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held next Wednesday and Thursday February 12th and 13th.. Conference days and times remain the same as first semester if you did not reschedule with the teacher. If your conference was on Tuesday first semester it will be held on Thursday this semester. If you have questions about the day and time of your conference please contact your child's teacher.

Family Engagement Survey

Next week we will have computers available during conferences for a family engagement survey. We would love for each family to take 5 minutes to fill out this survey. If you can't fill it out at Parent Teacher Conferences the link will also be available on our website, Facebook page, and right here on this newsletter. It is available in multiple languages so you can take it in your home language. Click here to take the survey
