Great job with conferences this week!

I had numerous parents approach me throughout the week to let me know their kids were having a great start to the school year and they were highly complementary of their teachers. Great job! Continue to closely communicate with your parents so they remain well informed.

Also, please let Amanda know your participation numbers so we can report to the district.

DAs During Specials (reminder)

In order to maximize instructional time in our core classes, upcoming DAs will be given online during Specials October 1, 2, 5, and 6 as follows:

[NOTE: Art and Music for grades K, 1, and 2 will follow the normal specials rotation.]
