Mrs. Lee's Weekly Update

News for the Week of October 10, 2012


Monday, October 29 is a teacher workday and will be used for conferences. I would like to meet with each family to discuss your child's progress for this nine weeks. A sign-up sheet for conferences will be available at Open House next week. If you are unable to attend Open House, I will send home the conference schedule so you can select a time. I look forward to meeting with you!

Open House - Thursday, October 18 - 6:00-7:30pm

We will have a drop-in Open House next Thursday for your child to show you around our class and share some things he/she has been working on.  This will be an informal walk-through that will allow you to take a peek into our day.  You may also sign up for conferences at this time.
