A Few Reminders...


  • Be sure to mark your calendar for Parent-Teacher Conferences. I will be sending home a sign-up sheet for conference times in the upcoming week.
  • If you have been checking Parent Portal this quarter, I’m sure you’ve noticed that you haven‘t been able to see many assignments. 1st Quarter is spent mostly establishing procedures and reviewing skills previously taught. You will notice assignments being entered more frequently in 2nd quarter!
