Coming Soon: Parent-Teacher Conference Registration

What? Parent-Teacher Conferences

When? October 27th and October 28th (afternoon/evening times). These will be half days of school for students.

Where? On Zoom

A change to note:

  • Parents will need to select specific teachers (by checking or unchecking their boxes) to schedule a conference.
  • There are many teachers who help your child learn, grow, and navigate the school environment. For the purpose of Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences, we highly recommended sitting down with your child to determine which teachers they see with regularity to inform your conference sign-ups.

Stay tuned for more information to come from AW and MM on Friday!

Innovation Grants Committee Seeks Panelists

The PTC is looking for parent volunteers to serve on the panel that reviews Innovation Grant submissions. Innovation grants are awarded to teachers to continue the amazing work they do for our students. The commitment requires attendance at up to five meetings and agreeing to read all grant submissions.
