Parent/Teacher Conferences

Thank you to all the parents who participated in parent/teacher conferences this week. We hope you gained a solid understanding of your child's progress this year. Please reach out to your child's teacher anytime this year if you have any questions or concerns.

Right now we know we are asking a lot from you and we do wish times were different. We want kids in the building as much as many of you do. With all the circumstances that we have encountered over the last few months, we are truly making lemonade from lemons. We have been proud of what our teachers and parents have done to make learning possible. This has been a team approach and we want to thank everyone for working together this year.

Thank you!
