Conferences are Coming!

Surprising as it is, we are already approaching the end of our first quarter.  This year we have tried to accommodate the schedules of our working parents by hosting our conferences in the early evening hours.  You should have received information from your child’s school about conferences and how to schedule them.  If you have not received information, please contact your child’s teacher.  Conferences will be held on Monday, October 26th and Tuesday, October 27th after school.  Please note that we will have a 30 minute early dismissal on each of those days.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school.  This is a great opportunity to connect with your child’s teacher.  No matter the age of the student–we hope to see all parents at conference!

Things to Know/Do:

  • Did you watch the video posted last week with your kids?  If not–there’s still time! Heroin:  Not a Problem, An Epidemic–Have you had the chance to watch this video put out by the Porter County Sheriff’s Department?  This is a powerful look at the growing problem in Porter County–and is something that every parent should watch.  It is even more powerful to watch it with your child.  Take the time to watch it today!

  • Now hiring substitute teachers! Please contact Linda Dusek at the administration building if you are interested in substitute teaching and she will help you start the application process and discuss qualifications.
  • Do your friends and neighbors know how to find our weekly updates? Even if your neighbors don’t have kids in school tell them about our weekly updates so they can hear the great news of what happens at PTSC!
  • Every Wednesday is a 30-minute delayed start. If we have a 2-hour delay, students will arrive at school 2 hours after the regular start time for the building.
  • We are also looking for bus drivers to drive our extra-curricular runs. If you are interested, please apply online. It’s a great way to earn some money and attend extra-curricular events!
