Parent Conferences / Half Days are April 17, 18 & 19

We hope you have a productive teacher parent conference. Conferences are intended to help you understand your child’s academic and social development, to highlight strengths and challenges, and to encourage parent-teacher dialogue. Conference reports are intended to provide information for parents, not children. We, of course, encourage you to paraphrase reports in a manner that is suitable for your child. If your child wants more information about how the teacher views his or her progress, please ask the teacher to talk with your student individually. Teachers are happy to do so. The best parking options for parent conferences will be at the community center and up the hill on Union Street.

Important! Wed. April 17 – Fri. April 19th are half days.

You may pick up your child during lunch as school ends at 12:15 and the afterschool program starts at 12:45. Depot pick-up is 12:15 – 12:25. Please check the Lost and Found cubbies on the porch for items. We will donate any items left after Friday April 19th. Please put your child’s names in sweaters, jackets & coats to keep them out of the lost and found. We will have a table out with extra school shirts available for purchase.
