Weekly Updates for the week of September 19

Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences

I will be sending out a Sign-Up Genius soon for Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences. Each conference time will be for 15 minutes. I will give the students 10 minutes to share information about the year so far with you. Then if you would like to talk one-on-one for 5 minutes we can.

Epic!

I had the kids read in class today using Epic. Epic! is free for teachers but is not free for parents. I have set it up so the kids can read in class using my educator account. I am asking that you download the Epic! app because it gives us access to more books.
