Thursday night is the third night for parent/teacher conferences. Thank you again to our awesome PTO for organizing the much appreciated meals for our staff. It is another packed evening at all grade levels. If you were unable to schedule a conference time, please reach out to your student's teachers about setting up an alternate time.
