Parents should not feel obligated to sign-up for conferences. If your child is doing well at school, both academically and socially, then you might choose not to have a conference. (It does not make you a bad parent not to sign-up for conferences!)
If your child is struggling, we would suggest that you do come to conferences! You might only feel the need to meet one or a few teachers. There is no obligation to meet every teacher.
If your child is doing well academically, there may not be a need for a conference. Teachers can always be reached via email.

Fox River Helpers River Cleanup Group
Hi! I’m Callie Ramirez and I am a Wredling student! I grew up next to the Fox River and would visit it very often, it’s not until now that I have noticed all the garbage and debris in the river and animals getting caught in fishing lines. I think this is a problem that needs to be noticed and we need to take action! Do you love nature and care about the environment? This river clean up group will go to different areas of the Fox River once a month and clean up all the garbage that is either floating around or washed up onshore. This will not only help the wildlife in the river but you are also doing a good deed by volunteering your time and effort. It’s time for us to give back!
The first river meet will be October 10th at Fabyan Park in Batavia from 9:30-12:00(meet at the parking lot by the windmill)
What you will need:
Rainboots/other shoes that can get wet
Clothes you can get dirty
You can bring your own snacks (but small snacks will be provided)
A water bottle
Appropriate clothes for the weather
Music/speaker if you wish to play music
A large garbage bag
