Parent Teacher Conference Schedule Information


Time has come around for conferences! We feel this is an important step towards the success of your child's year of learning. A Parent/Teacher conference gives the teacher and parents an opportunity to review the student’s progress within the classroom and set goals for the next nine weeks.


Conferences will be scheduled for Thursday, February 8th and Friday, February 9th, 2018. There will be half days of school on these days for all students. All students will be dismissed at 11:45 a.m. KIDCO will be on campus beginning at 11:45 am on both of these days.


Your classroom teacher will be contacting you soon if a conference is needed. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher.


Thank you,


Diane Vargo, Principal
