    Announcements/Upcoming Events:

    Parent-Teacher Conference on Feb. 20, 2020-We were so surprised to see how many parents were excited about the parent-teacher conference opportunity that we made available. Based on our previous information, we weren’t expecting so many parents to sign up. We want to make sure that everyone who wants a conference, particularly if your child is not meeting proficiency expectations, can have one.  We recognize that there were a few parents who were unable to sign-up for a time slot on Feb. 20. Please know you are always welcome to schedule a conference with your child’s teacher and it does not have to be on Feb. 20.  If you would like to schedule a conference, please email your child’s team leader or homeroom teacher.  They will communicate with you and schedule a conference.

    For those parents who signed up, if you need to cancel, please email Sara Morey (smorey@wcpss.net) as soon as possible, so we can open up the slot for another family.
