      During the month of March and April, be on the lookout for information regarding Student-Led Conferences.

Parents can ask questions and comment on student work. The teachers is the classroom host/facilitator and the student conducts the conference. Conferences are by appointment. Parents/Guardians will be contacted about scheduling a time on May 3 by their student’s homeroom teacher. Stay-tuned for more information.

Our floors are waxed and we are preparing! 6th grade students will kick off the year with a morning orientation on September 6th. Parents are welcome to walk students to the cafeteria for name tags and then to the auditorium. While 6th graders get oriented, returning 7th and 8th grade students will reconnect with their peers in homeroom and get ready to begin the year. New 7th and 8th graders will have a special orientation—more information will be available on our website. Remember to check the website regularly for updated information.
