We are looking forward to connecting with families at our second round of student-led conferences on Thursday, February 13 and Friday, February 14. Since our conferences are student-led, we ask that students attend so they can share with parents their progress in academic and social emotional areas, as well as goals they have set for the remainder of the 2020 school year. Teachers will also be sharing their insights and establishing areas of focus to bridge home and school support.
Please remember that our school day schedule is adjusted to accommodate these conferences. Thursday, February 13 will be a half-day of school with a dismissal time of 11:40. Also, there is no school on Friday, February 14.

If the student’s last name begins with the letters A-L, they will come on Monday, February 10, and if the student’s last name begins with the letters M-Z, they will come on Tuesday, February 11.
