Penn Pride: We have. We are. Together.

Together -- parents and teachers

We all benefit when parents and teachers sit down together to talk. Kids really do like knowing that "their people" are talking. Teachers have information to share with you, but we also love to hear your insights about your child(ren). We respect and appreciate that parents know their children better than anyone. So, please be sure to come in for a chat.

It isn't too late to sign up for a conference! Contact your child's teacher or call the office if you need help getting set up.
