Thursday, September 11 is the first day of parent conferences. This means that students will be released at 1:15 ever day from September 11 through September 19. Please contact your teacher if you have not yet secured an appointment. This first quarter, you will get a report from your child’s teacher on “Responsibility for Learning and Behaviors”. You will not receive a full and complete report card until the end of 2nd quarter. Your teachers, however, will share with you your child’s current performance in reading, writing, and math. Here are the categories for which your child will receive marks this quarter:
Responsibility for Learning and Behavior
