JUNIOR IGP MEETING SIGN-UPS

This year, we will be using an online scheduling system called Calendly to schedule junior IGP meetings. We are hoping this will increase parent participation in the meetings. The deadline to choose your student’s IGP meeting date and time is Friday, October 13th. If you do not choose a date and time for your student’s IGP meeting, we will schedule the meeting. We will be sending out IGP letters with the dates and times on Tuesday, October 24th

Sign up for your student’s IGP meeting according to who his/her counselor is. If you are unsure of who your student’s counselor is, select the counselor who has the set of the alphabet for your student’s last name.
