A Message from Mrs. Fantaskey

Early Dismissal Days this Month:

As a reminder we have some early dismissal days occurring this month. Please note that early dismissal for grades 1-6 is at 11:55 AM. The following days are early dismissal days: 3/10, 3/17, & 3/18.


Conferences:

The second trimester ends on Thursday, 3/10/22, and our spring conferences will begin in the coming days. Conferences will be held in person this spring. All teachers have sent their links to sign up for a conference. If you have specific questions about your conference time, please reach out to your child's teacher. We look forward to our conference time as it is an opportunity to check in with families, celebrate your students' progress and set goals for the 3rd trimester.


Report Cards:

Report cards will be available for families to view in Parent Portal on March 22nd at 1:00 PM. I want you to be aware that teachers may not report on all the report card descriptors in the second trimester. The descriptors they do not report on will be gray or they will be left blank. This is not a mistake. Students have either not yet had formal instruction on all the skills they will learn this year (math) or information on that indicator is incorporated into another indicator (reading). As always, our teachers are looking forward to celebrating your child’s progress at the upcoming conference.


Read Across America: Thank you to our students and staff for participating in our spirit days and extra-fun reading activities to celebrate Read Across America! Thank you for the very generous donations and supplies for WAGS Rescue. Our furry friends will be so grateful for your generosity!


Have a wonderful week,

Mrs. Fantaskey
