Dear Families,

Parent Teacher Conferences

We loved connecting with so many of you during our first round of Parent Teacher Conferences! If we didn’t see you yet, please sign up for our second round of virtual Parent Teacher Conferences, held via Zoom on Friday, May 29th.

Please note:

The link for our morning and afternoon sessions is the same (see below).
Conferences will be no more than 10 minutes; if we need to arrange a longer follow up meeting, we will.
Please join the Zoom waiting room a few minutes before your time slot begins.
If you are late or miss your time slot we likely won’t be able to see you that day, but will reschedule.
Know that we will not be able to answer any questions about the 20-21 school year.
We will discuss how your child is doing with remote learning, academically and socially.
We will not be able to respond to students on Google Classroom on Friday but we will have our regular class meeting at 10:00.

Highlights from remote learning last week:

We tried out breakout rooms during our class meetings and also had a visit from Ms. Chung.
Students’ American Revolution books are underway and are looking great!
Students added to their small group Jamboards about our read aloud Fish in a Tree.

We hope that everyone enjoys an extra day of rest, fun, or remembrance this long weekend!
