Mission Elementary Weekly News

October 17, 2021

Dear Mission Families, our conferences were a great success! We thank each of you who attended your conference and hope you found your time with your child’s teacher(s) beneficial. Teachers were pleased to share students’ academic progress as well as a plan to address areas of need. Also thanks to all students who participated in our Book Fair. Please make sure your child reads at least 20 minutes every night and completes his/her homework. Feel free to contact your student’s teacher any time you need to discuss your child’s progress at school. Thank you for your ongoing support, Ms. Robinson
