This year most parent-teacher conferences will occur the evenings of October 6 and 15 with teachers setting up additional conferences as needed. Conferences for Mrs. Miller's 1st grade class will occur in November after Mrs. Miller's return from maternity leave. This year we are using an online sign-up called PTCfast.com. Online sign-ups began Monday, September 21st; sign-up windows close four days prior to the conference date. If you have any issues using the system or cannot find a time that works for your schedule, please contact the teacher. Sign-up for a conference using this link:

Thinking Ahead to Halloween
- Students may NOT bring candy or other edible treats to distribute to classmates. Party food is provided by the PTA party volunteers who communicate with teachers regarding allergies and other food restrictions.
- With the exception of morning kindergarten, students may not wear their costumes to school in the morning. Teachers will allow students to put costumes on prior to the afternoon parade. Parents may pick up their children at lunch if they prefer their children put costumes on at home.
- Costumes should be school-appropriate. They should not be overly graphic, scary or violent. Weapon-look-a-like accessories cannot be brought to school. Students' faces cannot be completely covered; we need to be able to identify all students.
Please contact Mrs. Craig with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Washington WatchD.O.G.S kicks off!
A big thanks goes to our kick-off team: Gene Olsen, Todd Manning, Mike Peters, Devin Leftwich, John Czechowicz, and Tom Rebro. Thank you also to the Washington staff who helped with the event: Debbie Willems, Julie Banta, J.J. Babb, Dan Cerny, and David Ourada.
The event would not have been possible without the support of Dr. Joanne Panopoulos, Assistant Superintendent and the support of these local businesses:
Giordano's in Glen Ellyn
Jewel on Main & Geneva in Wheaton
Target in Wheaton
Mariano's in Wheaton
Village Market Place in Carol Stream
There will be other opportunities for Washington dads to be a WatchD.O.G. January through the end of the year. There may be additional opportunities to be a WatchD.O.G. this fall once we have the program up and running.
Our first WatchD.O.G.S. are on duty this week!
