Reminders

  • Make sure you are checking your PTC sign-ups and contacting those parents that have not signed up ASAP. You should have received a link in the last email sent which allows you to see any time you want who has signed up.
  • Parent-Teacher Conferences this week. As you get ready for conferences try to have something to talk with the parent about that they don't already know. Try to shed some light on their child at school that they would not know. If they ask you a question you don't know remember it is good to say I don't know, but I will find out and get back to you.
  • We will have a fire drill on Monday at 9:15 am.
  • Here is the link to the Technology Help Website. If you would like me to put anything on here please let me know.
  • Thank you for all of your hard work every week. We could not do everything that we do without it.
