Mrs. Yoder's class

Conferences start next week!

On Monday, a sheet will come home that can help you better understand your child’s NWEA scores and report card which will be available to view on Skyward towards the end of next week. Because our conference will focus on your child sharing work and setting personal goals, I will send a progress report with you the week of Fall Break. In conjunction with the report card, this will be helpful in understanding how your child is doing in class.

Each conference is scheduled for 15 minutes which will go quickly. If you have more questions, please feel free to get in touch with me.

If you have signed up for an after-school conference, you are welcome to meet me at door 13 which is the first grade pod door. This will save time from having to walk to and from the front office. If you have signed up for a morning conference, I will meet you at the front doors of the school.

Lost and Found

The lost and found in our school cafeteria is overflowing! Please ask your child to please take a look during lunch if they are missing anything. Anything left over fall break will be donated.
