Fall Break and Parent-Teacher Conferences
Parent-teacher conferences begin this evening and run through the end of the week. A reminder that there is no school tomorrow or Friday, with conferences leading us right into next week’s Fall Break. I hope that you all have a restful and enjoyable break. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Monday, Nov. 27.
