1. Teacher Parent Conferences

  • – A couple of reminders for parent teacher conferences:
    • Send a schedule to the front office and let Marta know if you need help with translating
    • If you have an SST 1 scheduled during parent conferences, please let Marissa know so that she can attend.
    • Mindlab Teachers will be available for parents to sign up for parent-teacher conferences to discuss students’ grades and will have a sign-up sheet outside their door.

2. After-School Clubs:

  • During parent teacher conferences after-school clubs will continue! Clubs will be from 1:40-2:20 Monday-Wednesday and Friday. Please communicate this to your classes. Ballet Folklorico will have practice tomorrow!

3. Parent Interest Surveys:

  • This Friday parent interest surveys were placed in your boxes. Have parents fill this out while they are waiting or as they are leaving their parent teacher conference. We would like parent input as to what workshops they would be interested in attending. All completed surveys can be put in Mrs. Sleiman’s box in room 201.

4. Donors Choose/Feaster Blog

  • Mrs. Walker is available to help anyone who is interested in funding a project for your classroom find the resources or set up a Donors Choose. Those interested in funding flexible seating, rugs, couches, bean bag chairs, etc. can email her and she will follow up with you to set up an account!
