Family Connection Conferences - August 29 & August 30

Family connection conference dates and times will be sent out soon.  These conferences will take place for all Kindergarteners and First grade students.  This time will be used for the teacher to get to know you and your child and for you to get to know your child's teacher.  During this time you may provide any information you wish to share with your child's teacher.  This is also a wonderful time for you to discuss any concerns and for the teacher to answer any questions you may have.

Due to the conferences, there will be no school for Kindergartener's and First Grade students until August 31st.  All other grades will start school on August 29th.
