Homeroom Parent Advisory Council Monthly Meeting with ES Principal Munnerlyn- March 15, 08:45-09:45- A002)
This meeting is an opportunity for our Elementary Homeroom parents to connect with Mrs. Munnerlyn on a variety of topics in the Elementary School. All Homeroom Parents are welcome to attend.
Elementary Conferences- Friday, March 24, 2017
Our Elementary Spring Conferences are planned for March 24. While this is not a school day for students, please note that students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 will each participate in their conferences.
Why? Because your children are a vital part of the learning journey! Celebrating what has gone well, and being able to speak to what he/she will do next allows students to have a voice in their own learning journey. Being present for and part of our conferences help children feel connected and empowered.
Please remember, teachers are always available to meeting with parents throughout the year. If there is an important need for you to speak with your child’s teacher, don’t wait for a conference date! (We will do the same.)
Please be on the lookout for a special email from the ES Office on Wednesday morning with conference sign-up sheets for all classes.
We are hoping for 100% attendance on this special day.
