Stay connected with us at school!


Families,

Have you connected with your child's teacher using Talking Points? This is an app that allows teachers to text you important messages/reminders and send pictures of your child learning at school. It also translates messages into many different languages, if needed. We've found it's a great way to stay in touch! Let your child's teacher know if you would like to use Talking Points to stay connected with us this year. Remember: You are an important part of your child's learning team!


We look forward to hearing from you!

Conferences Coming Up

We are looking forward to seeing families at conferences! Student/Parent/Teacher conferences are coming right up on Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th. Please make sure you bring your child to the conference, as their participation is an essential part of their learning. The third graders have made videos, in which they tell about their learning in each subject, and they are excited to share them with you! Please contact your child's teacher or the main office if you are unsure of your conference time or unable to make the time scheduled. 

We'll see you soon!
