Portfolio Conference Information

Portfolio Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, April 2nd. As always, conferences can be held about one week before and one week after this date. Please work with your child's teacher to schedule this valuable, reflective, and celebratory time.

The parent portal opens on Wednesday April 1st for your review.

Grades 2-6 will be sending portfolios home:

  • We plan to send home portfolios for preview on Thursday, March 26th. We ask that they be returned on Monday, March 30th so teachers can finalize preparations for the conferences.
  • We will not assign homework on these nights so families can spend a few nights reviewing, reflecting, and celebrating the contents of the portfolio.

Grade K will hold an in-school preview (TBD - teachers will notify classes of specifics)

Grade 1 will hold an in-school preview (TBD - teachers will notify classes of specifics)
