With the end of the quarter comes our first round of Parent/Teacher Conferences. Conferences will be held on two consecutive Thursdays, October 27 and November 3, from 4-8 pm each night. School dismisses at 2:30 each of those Thursdays as well. We'll still have our usual 2:30 Wednesday dismissals those weeks too so there will be back-to-back early dismissals the next couple of Wednesdays and Thursdays. High school conferences are unscheduled. Teachers will be available to meet with parents/guardians in their classrooms. We encourage students to attend conferences with their parents. Please stop in the high school office when you arrive for conferences to pick up your student's report card. Report cards that are not picked up at conferences will be mailed out after November 3. Only a parent/guardian can pick the report card up in the office. I encourage you all to attend Parent/Teacher conferences. The face-to-face conversation between parents, students, and teachers is beneficial for all parties.
Some final quick thoughts:
*We will be using Iowa School Alerts again for notices about school cancellations, late starts, etc. If you haven't signed up before see the school website to get signed up now or we can help you do that at P/T Conferences.
*I hope to email parents more frequently this quarter with timely information. If your email address changes please notify the office.
*Parent Online Access is a great way to keep track of your student's grades, attendance, and lunch account balance. Ask in the office at P/T Conferences how you can get signed up if you aren't already.
