Report Cards, “State of the School,” & International Night Volunteers

aplusReport cards will be distributed at parent-teacher conferences on Wednesday April 17 between 11:00am-3:00pm and 3:45pm-6:00pm. There will be no classes Wednesday. Teachers tend to get backed up right at the end of the day, so it’s always a good idea to come as early as possible (but not during the 3-3:45pm lunch break). The school is hoping to achieve a 100% pick-up rate.

Along with report card pickup, the school is hosting three “State of the School” sessions to update parents about student assessments, testing, performance, and how they relate to grade level preparedness and high school options. The three sessions will be: 12:30—1pm, 12:15—2:45pm and, 4:45—5:15pm

Also on Wednesday, visit the FFO table for info about this year’s International Night (Wednesday, June 5). Grab a flyer, and find out how you can help out by volunteering your time to help with setup, serving, or cleanup at the event, donating food or supplies, or donating a raffle prize. This year will feature a 50/50 raffle and we’ll also be raffling off a variety of fantastic gift baskets. Proceeds will help the FFO to support the school. Watch this site for more International Night info coming very soon.
