It is hard to believe that we will be welcoming March next week. At this time last year, we could not have imagined what the next 12 months would have looked like. Thank you for weathering them with us. The strength and resilience of our community never ceases to amaze us. Here’s to the brighter days of the approaching spring.
Please be reminded that Parent Teacher Conferences will take place on Thursday, March 4th. In-person B group students will have early dismissal on Thursday at 11:30. Be sure to keep an eye out for conference sign-ups with your child’s teacher(s). As was our practice in the fall, conferences will be used to discuss progress thus far and report cards will follow at the end of the month. A benefit of this shift from our usual practice is the additional time that is offered for students between parent meetings and report cards to submit missing work or assessments, as well as the additional time for skill development. Report cards are available through your child’s NYCSA account.
From the 5th Grade Committee:
Reminder that the next 5th grade committee meeting is on Tuesday, March 2nd at 6pm. All meetings will be brief and will help us move forward with making the year special for our 5th graders. The zoom details are:
