Family-Teacher Conferences

We encourage our families to participate in our Winter Conferences from February 27 - March 10th. Conferences can be held either in person or through Zoom.

This is a time for families, the classroom teacher, and other Crestwood staff to discuss your child's academic growth, social/emotional needs, and celebrations! We hope for 100% participation from our community and encourage you to work with your child's teacher to schedule a time to reflect on this past trimester together.

Our last in-person Conference for Winter is Tuesday, March 7th, from 4-7 pm. If you have not done so, please contact your child's teacher to schedule a Conference!
