Conferences are ten minutes each. Grades 6, 7 and 8 teachers are meeting in two pairs. If you want to see all of your child’s teachers, sign up for two slots, one for each pair of teachers.

Additionally, specialists will be in the gym and enrichment teachers will be in Room 123 to meet with you before or after your conference, if you are interested in speaking with them.
We are looking forward to seeing our Middle School Families during these dates!
