McIntire Minutes 10/14/16
By Mark Clements, Principal
The School Year is Flying By!
You should receive a note soon if you haven't already from your child's teacher about Parent / Teacher conferences on October 25th and 27th. We relish the opportunity to discuss your child's progress with you and appreciate your attendance. While many of our teachers (especially in grades 2-5) opt for "open" or "student-led" conferences, you do as a parent have the right to request a traditional "closed" conference with just you and the teacher. Just let us know if that's what you prefer and we'll be happy to oblige. Both formats have their strengths and weaknesses and we're happy to accommodate your families needs.
With Parent / Teacher conferences you will receive your child's report card, attendance record and MAP testing results as well. Thank you for your continued support of your student's education and allowing us to partner with you in that endeavor.

A Reminder About School Opening Times
As the weather turns colder, I felt the need to remind everyone about our policies regarding the opening of school. Doors open everyday at 7:45 - Students arriving before this may not be allowed into the building as our staff is not yet on hand to aid in their supervision. PLEASE help us keep your students safe by not dropping them off prior to 7:45.
