We are quickly approaching the time for Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences!
September 16th and 17th have been designated as P/T Conference days. Students will be dismissed at noon both days.
Conferences can be conducted in-person, virtually using Schoology’s Big Blue Button, or via phone.
Please refer to the information below regarding how to sign-up for your student’s conference. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re having trouble signing up.
Teachers will be sharing Q1 report cards with you at the conference.
Please reach out to me or your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
Your partner in education, Kendra Forgacs, M.Ed. Principal
