Please Sign Up for Parent Conferences

We hope that everyone takes a moment to choose a conference time in the book in the office. We offer conferences as late as 7pm this Wednesday, and are willing to go later if needed. We are also willing to do phone conferences or open up alternative times to ensure that we get to see everyone. We are planning a special group activity at school if we get 100 percent participation.
