Parent/Teacher Conferences

Hello Parents! It's that time again! Parent teacher Conferences are here.
DATE: May 7, 2020- May 22, 2020
Parent Teacher Conferences (PTC) are an important way for teachers to learn more about their students from families, and provide feedback to families about students’ academic performance. During the COVID-19 pandemic, home is school for most of our students, and families are playing the role of administrators, educators, facilitators, and coaches for student learning. The
