Parent teacher conferences will be taking place on October 12th. Our goal is to meet with every parent by the end of the first 6 weeks. If you have not already schedule your conference, please contact your child's teacher. Please remember your scheduled conference time. If you cannot make it to your conference, let your child's homeroom teacher know as soon as possible so that alternative plans can be arranged.

How can you help?

There are many opportunities for you to help. We will need help this year with class parties, field trips, and small group tutoring. If you can help in any way please let us know.
