Making the Grade Conference

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped this year at the Making the Grade Conferences held at all three District 186 high schools; Lanphier, Springfield & Southeast!
Conferences were held four times this year and they were a way for community members to meet our young people and encourage them to pursue academic excellence. They met with students as they reflected on their progress and set goals for each quarter.

We are looking forward to seeing you at Making the Grade Conference in 2015-16.
