Fall parent/teacher conferences will take place on November 8th and 9th. In your folder, you will find a reminder of the conference times you registered for. If you are unable to keep your scheduled time, or have not yet signed up for a conference, please call the office.
Our school-wide theme for the month of October is, "Our school is a welcoming place where every student feels like he or she belongs." In our morning announcements and school assembly, we will be reminding students to welcome others and act and speak in safe, respectful, and responsible ways. In addition, we will be reminding students of our school rules. We will also begin teaching the Second Step program, which includes lessons that support these behaviors. Please tell your child’s teacher if you have questions about specific ways you can help your child with these behaviors at home.
Please be sure to keep your before and after school bills and your lunch bills up to date. We are happy to work with families to arrange payment plans if necessary. If any circumstances in your family’s life change, it may be possible for you to qualify for free or reduced lunch, so please contact the office if you’d like to fill out those forms. This is something that can be done at any time, not just at the beginning of the year.
