Conferences are next week!

This year we will be conducting Student Led Conferences. These conferences allow your child to be a part of the conference where he/she can showcase what they have been learning and together we can celebrate accomplishments and discuss future goals. If needed at the end of the conference, parents may request a few moments to speak to the teacher without the child present.

· DATES: October 13 and 14

· TIMES: 15-minute increment from 4-8pm

· PLACE: Room 32

· REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Monday, October 5th
