HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." ~Philippians 4:13
*Report cards will be distributed to your child on Wednesday, 3/15. This will allow you time to review it. Conferences will be "optional", which means...
1) It will be NECESSARY for me to meet with several parents--- your cover letter will notify you if I am requesting a conference with you on Thursday 3/16.
2) For some children, a conference will not be needed. Your cover letters will state that. However, if YOU want to request a conference with me, there will be a tear-off letting me know you'd like to see me on Thursday, 3/16.
