Our Spring Open House is scheduled for Thursday, March 16 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Teachers will be available for conferences in their classrooms. Please introduce yourself to your student’s teachers because family and school collaboration is a key factor to student success.
Although parents and students can access grades through Family Access, we sincerely hope you will take this opportunity to personally meet with our faculty. Teachers will be available to meet with you and discuss your student’s academic progress. Establishing an open line of communication among teachers, parents, and students is essential if we are to best serve student learning.
