Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
Today we have two important pieces of information coming home. The first is the teacher-requested conference sheets. You might receive one of two forms. The most common letter is the one that sates that you are not being requested to come in at this time, and the other is that I am requesting a conference at this time. If you receive the later one please return the letter no later than February 15th so we can make sure there are no scheduling issues. If you were not requested for a conference, but you want one just email me and I can see if I have any open spots.
The second important piece of information coming home today is the results from the Winter MAPs test. Please see how your child has progressed so far. If you are confused on anything please email me and I can help you explain.
Thursday, February 21st will be an early release day where the students leave at 11:30. That same night is teacher requested conferences from 4-8. The request letters will go home next week. Friday, February 22nd is also a no school day for the students.
That is all for this week. Thanks for reading Our Class Newsletter. Please email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
