It’s All About Team–Parents and Teachers Working Together

We believe strongly in the power of working together for the best for students and that in doing so we can maximize our positive impact for every student, every day.  One way we do this is through our conferences with parents.

You will be receiving 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 24th and Tuesday, October 25th 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!

Another way to enhance communication is through Harmony.  Login to review your child’s grades on at least a weekly basis.  This helps you to keep up to date on your child’s progress and ask questions as they come up.

We are glad to have parents working together with us on this team–as we all work together to help every student, every day, find his or her fullest potential!
