Parents, Students and Friends –

 Parent Teacher Conferences

P/T Conferences will be held next week on Wednesday, February 17th, from 2:30 – 7:00pm Our P/T Conference is a great time to visit with teachers and discuss how your student(s) is doing in class.  Teachers will be in the cafeteria, but before you head in, please stop at the counseling table to pick up a copy of your student's midterm grade report.  The counseling table will be set up at the main entrance of the school, outside of the main office.

PTA Book Fair
