DATES: October 5 – October 21
TIMES: 15-minute increment at various times of the day
PLACE: Room 41
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Monday, October 5th

Once the page opens, you will be prompted for your Entry Code, where you should enter RFG164890
If you have signed up for an after-school conference, you are welcome to meet me at door 13 which is the first grade pod door. This will save time from having to walk to and from the front office. If you have signed up for a morning conference, I will meet you at the front doors of the school.
I look forward to discussing your child's progress with you.
