Parent Teacher Conferences

Don't forget your conference time on Tuesday or Thursday this week! Advisory teachers scheduled 15-minute conferences, so please arrive on time and know that teachers might not have long to visit before the next family arrives. Students will go over their Learner Profile with parents, and advisory teachers will discuss progress and important documents. If you do not have a conference scheduled, please contact your child's advisory teacher or the school.


¡No olvide la hora de su conferencia el martes o jueves de esta semana! Los maestros asesores programaron conferencias de 15 minutos, así que llegue a tiempo y sepa que es posible que los maestros no tengan mucho tiempo para visitar antes de que llegue la próxima familia. Los estudiantes revisarán su perfil de aprendizaje con los padres y los maestros discutirán el progreso y los documentos importantes. Si no tiene una conferencia programada, comuníquese con el maestro asesor de su hijo o con la escuela.

Scholastic Book Fair

Vandalism Warning

Parents & Students: We need your help. 'Devious Licks' is the latest viral trend on the social media app TikTok. Students are destroying school restrooms and/or stealing items.

Our school has experienced several of these incidents. It's important for parents to monitor students' social media activity and have conversations with their kids about the destructive and disrespectful nature of these pranks. In addition to suspension from school, vandalism can result in financial and legal consequences. We have caught almost every student through school cameras and notified parents and law enforcement.

Please report any suspicious activity or information related to school vandalism to the principals or through the See Something, Say Something link.
