Parent-Teacher Conference Week
Thanks to all parents for attending conferences last week!   Conferences are an important opportunity for parents, teachers, and sometime students to communicate about and discuss academic progress.   We typically have 100% attendance at conferences, and appreciate your commitment to strengthening the school-home connection.
Thank you to the PTO Hospitality Committee for the delicious dinner on Tuesday night!
Another thanks goes out to the many volunteers who work in our classrooms!   On behalf of
the faculty and students, we appreciate your support as we work to have every child meet
his or her potential.
