Wasco Weekly


September 16, 2022

Wasco Families,

Our communication and connection processes include school events such as Back to School Night and classroom newsletters. Soon we will begin our the next stage of communication and connection: Parent Teacher Conferences. The purpose of conferences is to provide personalized time for the discussion of the year's learning goals for your child. During the conference families will have the opportunity to learn and discuss their child’s development and understand more about expectations for the school year.

Parent/Teacher Conferences are Thursday, October 6 from 8am-8pm, and Friday, October 7 8am-12pm. Parents will once again be given the choice of an in-person conference or a virtual conference. The Pick-a-Time window for parents to sign-up for Fall Conferences is September 23rd-October 3rd. In advance of the sign up window opening, you can expect an email from me providing the directions.

In the meantime, if you have any questions about your child’s progress, please connect with the classroom teacher. They work very hard every day to ensure an engaging learning path for your child and your input is valuable.

Kind Regards,

Principal Brennan
