FIRST TRIMESTER CONFERENCES – OCT. 8
Our Parent-Teacher Conferences are on Tuesday, Oct. 8, 4-8 pm. Every Teacher will be available in their classrooms to meet with both parents and students. We strongly encourage you to bring your student and take a few minutes to meet with each of your student’s teachers. Conferences will be conducted on a drop-in, first come-first served basis. All grades will be updated, and it will be a wonderful opportunity to make sure that the channels
of communication are wide open in regard to your student’s performance. This
communication could be the difference in making sure your student is achieving to his or her potential!
In addition, our Counseling Department will be available for Conferences and informational presentations. Mrs. Mahlum, Ms. Scott, and Mr. Cosner will be on the following timeline:
4 pm to 5 pm: Available to all parents and students for Conferences (Counseling Office)
