Conferences are quickly approaching!  They are scheduled for February 20th and 22nd.  Students are completing our winter screening assessments this week and next, so staff will be prepared to share these scores, along with student growth in the classroom that has occurred over the past few months.  The sign-up link will be sent out in early February.
