Spring conferences are fast approaching…hopefully some warmer weather as well! Teachers will meet with parents on Wednesday afternoon, March 18th; Thursday afternoon March 19th; and Thursday evening March 19th.
Your child will bring home the conference letter by Friday. Please return the sign up portion promptly so teachers may coordinate days and times with you as soon as possible.
Conferences are intended to be a celebration of academic learning and importantly, a conversation about your child’s social development. You will hear an academic and social progress report for your child, with ways you can assist your child with learning at home.
Here is an informative link from the Harvard Family Research Project. The tip sheet provides suggestions for a positive conference experience.
Please remember that students are dismissed at 11:30AM on Wednesday, March 18th and Thursday, March 19th. Please be prompt at pick up so teachers may begin conferences in a timely manner.
The special teachers will be available ; and we kindly request you schedule a meeting with the teacher if you’d like to discuss progress in a special subject area.
Please call or email me with any questions. Hope to see many of you this evening at our Family Literacy Night!
Donna Hutton, Principal
