Progress Reports

Today I will send your child home with a progress report. We are 5 weeks into the school year and spent a lot of time forming our daily structure and routines. Please know that we have only a few grades in grade book and students have been working hard. If you have questions about grades and progress reports, please sign up for a conference one day this week OR on Friday for Parent Teacher Conference Day. I am very proud of the hard work these kiddos have put in so far! Keep working hard!

Please CALL for transportation changes. Also, please try to make transportation changes PRIOR to 1:30PM to ensure your child's safety in the afternoons.

I am available to discuss any concerns, celebrations or questions with you. Please notify me 24 hours or more in advance in order for me to schedule time with you. I respect your time as a family in the evenings and will not be scheduling conferences after 5:00PM this year.
