Conferences will be the week of February 22nd - 26th, depending on the teacher. A Sign-Up Genius was emailed out. Please don't forget to sign up.

Help with Planners

Please remember to check your child's planner each night. The planners have good reminders on things that are coming up or activities we have done that week. They are helpful in opening up the communication with your child. Also, if there is an issue going on at school, such as behaviors that need to be corrected, your teacher will write a note in the child's planner so parents can discuss better choices with their child. Thank you for helping us out with this.
