Conference Update

Parents are now able to begin to sign up for time slots for conferences. If you wish to schedule five minute time slots between your conference, you may. Parents have been given directions and information on how to sign up, and many already have. Please log in to Skyward to view your conference schedule. You can continually check this up until conference day. This is new for everyone this year and I appreciate your help and patience with this as we embrace this new process. Please view the tutorials below. They are very worthwhile, helpful, and short.

Student Council Pumpkin Sale

The Student Council will be holding their Pumpkin Sale on Thursday, October 15th from 5:00-7:00 PM in the gym. Pumpkins will be sold from $5-$8. Games will take place and food will be served. Please stop by for this fun event to support Dublin and our Student Council.

Advisory Team Meeting Wednesday

Our Dublin Advisory Team will meet on Wednesday, October 14th at 8:00 AM in the Media Center. We will be discussing our upcoming PD days and making plans for these important days.

I-Ready Diagnostic

All grades should now be giving the I-Ready Diagnostic using the computer lab and Chrome Books. Kindergarten should plan to give the diagnostic twice, and all other grade three times this year. Kindergarten should plan to give the diagnostic sometime in Nov-Dec. and then again toward the end of the school year.


Please let me know if you have questions about this. All grades, except kindergarten should have the first round of I-ready completed by the end of October. Please let me know when your class has completed this task. I will check your classes performance and reports then with you.
