Parent Teacher Conferences Information

Today is the first day to sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences! Please follow the directions in the letter, attached below.

Important note: we greatly value the time to meet with parents face-to-face to discuss progress, growth, and our new progress reports, but we also know that many families leave town during the week of Thanksgiving. You are welcome to schedule a phone conference with your child's teacher/s. As we set aside these two (very long) days for teachers to meet and conduct Parent Teacher Conferences, we do not offer Conference times outside of these two days. If it is not possible to schedule with your child's teacher/s during those days, please reach out directly to me via email and we can discuss from there. Teachers work incredibly hard to prepare for and conduct conferences during those two days, and we all want them to be fresh and prepared to meet the needs of all of our students during the days before and after the break, not short on time with added meetings. Thank you for your understanding and support of our teachers' hard work for kids!

Thank a Staff Member

Don't forget to "Thank a Staff Member" this week - we appreciate it! These thank you's go "live" for our staff on Monday, and the PTO and I would love to flood them with Field Park love.

Take a moment to thank our nurses, who do so much to help our tummy aches, boo-boos, and skinned knees... and all the other things they do behind the scenes to keep our kids SAFE and HEALTHY:

Michelle Pusatera

Joan Krillic

Does your child receive additional support/intervention for reading or math, or receive enrichment services? Take a moment to thank these phenomenal professionals - they do so much to help our kids, often behind the scenes and in small, intimate moments!
