Conference week is next week! We will have an early release schedule all week. Lunch will be from 11:25-11:45 Please remember your conference time and knock on the door when it is your turn. Twenty minutes goes by quickly so in order to stay on schedule, you can knock and open the door at the time of your conference. If for some reason you need to reschedule at the last minute, let me know so I can adjust my schedule accordingly. I will share your child's report card with you, as well as talk about strengths and weaknesses. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions. I am looking forward to meeting with all of you!
