Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are an important way for you connect with your child's teachers regarding your child's progress in school. Your participation in parent-teacher conferences sends a strong message to your child that you care about their education and helps build a strong connection between school and family.

This year we are utilizing the same on-line scheduling system as the middle school and high school. The link below will take you to the schedule, there is no password needed.

March 2nd (3:30-6:30pm)
