Durham Nockamixon Elementary School, March Edition
Spring Parent Teacher Conferences Are Coming!
In an effort to coordinate spring conferences for students who are receiving support from multiple teachers, you may receive an invitation to schedule a conference from your child's teacher the week of March 9th. By Monday, March 16th, all teachers will have emailed an invitation via a Google Doc in order to sign up for spring conferences. Conferences are scheduled to be held the afternoon and evening of Wednesday, April 1st and all day on Thursday, April 2nd.
Individual classroom teachers will email you a Google Doc indicating the conference schedule for that classroom. You will click the link contained in the email to open the document. It will show you the conference schedule for your child’s teacher(s). Once you have scheduled your appointment, if for any reason you are unable to attend your child’s conference, please communicate directly with your child’s classroom teacher to in order to reschedule.
I understand that there are some families who do not have email accounts. If you are one of these families, please inform your child’s teacher. We will then be sure to send the paper copy of the conference schedule home to you on March 16th. Also, if you wish to conference with a special subject teacher (Art, Music, PE, Spanish, Library), please contact them via email or voicemail, as they will be traveling among our buildings during conference time and will be scheduling their own appointments.

Be A Phanatic About Reading!
Students are encouraged to read for at least 15 minutes each day. Classroom teachers have been setting reading goals with their students each quarter. Collectively as a school our students have read over 2, 000 books so far this year! Way to Go, Bulldogs! As we continue to strive to keep the momentum going and pass away the last days of winter more quickly, we are encouraging our students to "think spring" as we get "Phanatic" about reading! Reading logs were sent home with students on February 27, 2015 in order for them to log their reading for the month of March. All students who turn in a log will receive a gift from the Philly Phanatic! Please stop in the office or click on the below link if you are in need of a log. Happy Reading!
