Dear Parents and Guardians,

Happy first day of Spring! Thank you so much for your attendance at your child’s student-led conference last Friday.  I could tell the students were excited to share their hard work and growth. We had about 92% attendance, which is fantastic.  Research shows that students do better in school when their parents are involved. The Mastery Reports for Trimester 2 will be mailed out towards the end of the month.  If you didn’t get to attend a conference, call the school and your child’s teacher will be happy to set something up for you.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS – Next Thursday, 3/30, Community Dinner and Family Math Game Night; Free dinner followed by math games you can play with your children and take home!  This is the Community Dinner from February that we had to cancel due a snow day. Please call the office soon to RSVP with how many are coming from your family so we have enough food prepared. All community members are welcome.
