Fall conferences start next week. Students will have early dismissal at 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, September 24th and Thursday, September 25th. We will eat lunch at 9:30 a.m. on both days so students will not need a snack. No slushies will be sold on Thursday. I am so excited to share your child's progress with you during conferences!
