Mid-year - We Made It!

Today officially marks the middle of the school year in the School District of Waukesha. We have been face to face as an elementary school community for an entire half a school year (minus the two days we were whole school virtual). This is a tremendous accomplishment for us all. I'm so proud of how our entire school family continues to pull together to take care of each other.

Teachers will be conducting Winter Conferences on an as needed basis for students next week on Thursday from 4:00-7:00. These virtual conferences will be scheduled by teachers if a conference is needed. Many students will not have a conference scheduled so be sure to reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns. There is never a need to wait until a conference to talk about your child. Our second Trimester runs until the beginning of March and report cards will be available in Infinite Campus at that time. Until then, checking the gradebook in Infinite Campus and reaching out to your child's teacher are the best way to stay updated.

We can't wait to see what our community accomplishes together through the rest of this remarkable year.
