Parent Teacher Conferences
Hard to believe we are already in October! September was fast paced but we managed to keep some of our important traditional learning activities up and running! We had a very successful Terry Fox Run on Friday, September 25th. We set a goal of 2 dollars per student and we easily reached that goal by collecting $312.00 for the Terry Fox Foundation! Students completed the run in their cohorts and set goals and challenged themselves during their class runs. Last week we recognized Orange Shirt Day! We had many new learning opportunities throughout the week and were very pleased to see so many student wearing orange shirts.
Parent Teacher Conferences – Early Dismissal Days
Next week we will have our first early dismissal days for parent conferences.
On Wednesday, October 14th and Thursday, October 15th students will be dismissed at 12:24.
This year our conferences will look and feel different as we will meet with families remotely. Teachers will be holding conferences with families either through Microsoft Teams (MSTeams) or phone calls. Please look for emails from your child’s classroom teacher to set up conference times and how to access your meeting if using MSTeams.
