November 2019


Conferences are scheduled for the evening of November 21st and the afternoon of the 22nd. Both of these days are early dismissals for students. Conference sign up is done through the Parent Portal which opens for Conference Scheduling on November 1st.

Conference Tips for Parents

Before the conference:

  • Ask your child how she feels about school.
  • Make a list of topics that you want to talk about with the teacher.
  • Prepare a list of questions such as:
What are my child's strengths and weaknesses?

Does my child participate in class?

Does my child seem happy at school?

What can I do at home to help?

During the conference:

  • Be on time (or early) for the meeting.
  • End the meeting on time. Other parents will probably have a conference after yours.
  • Relax and be yourself.
  • Stay calm during the conference.
  • Ask the most important questions first.
  • Ask for explanations of anything you don't understand
  • Ask your child's teacher for ways that you can help your child at home.

🍎 A Nature Walk with Mr. O'Brien's Class 🍁

πŸŽƒ Halloween Parade ReminderπŸŽƒ

Classes will exit the building at approximately 10:30 and walk along the front path highlighted in yellow below. Parents are asked to line the walkway area so our students can walk through and show off their costumes before returning to their classrooms.

Parents will not be permitted to take their children home directly from the parade. All students must be signed out in the office if leaving. Please let your child's teacher know ahead of time if you plan to take your child home after the parade so he or she can let the office know.

Teachers will be having their own individual classroom parties throughout the day. To ensure the continuity of our day and for security purposes, parents will not be invited in the classrooms after the parade ends. We appreciate your under understanding.


  • Students may not wear any masks.

  • We ask that hand-held items or parts (ie: wand, sword, bag, etc.), be left home.

  • Costumes can be worn to school but then should be taken off for the rest of the school day.

  • Parents are not permitted in the building after the parade for safety reasons and to ensure the continuity of instruction.
