No School on Monday

Reminder that teachers have a staff development day on Monday, so there is no school.


Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for the evenings of February 23rd, February 28th, and March 2nd. If possible, I like for my students to attend his/her conference, but I know that families are very busy and that does not always work. Thank you all for confirming your scheduled times. If you should forget your time, please email me or give the office a call. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!
