We encourage every child's parent or guardian to take this opportunity to talk with their teachers. It is a chance to get to know your child's teacher in an informal setting and understand the goals they have for their success.

But this is just the start. Get contact information from the teacher and encourage a dialogue throughout the year to check on your child's success and develop cooperative strategies for the challenges they will encounter. This should be a positive meeting with the objective being your child's wellbeing and supporting the teachers learning goals.

If you have any questions please contact your child’s classroom teacher or Mr. Gillman.

PS, the Book Fair will be open until 8:00 pm on these nights. Stop by, browse and buy a book for a child or classroom.
