Senior Parents,
Thank you to the parents who were able to make it out for our conferences this week.  I know that it takes time out of your work and day, but I've truly appreciated getting to touch base with so many of you.  I love getting to praise our students and share students’ progress with you.  It really has brought me great joy and helped me feel a renewed sense of purpose. 
I greatly appreciated Shelley Urben’s thoughts in her Nov. Newsletter about the sense of commitment and dedication to our school.  I couldn't agree with her more.  We’re moving forward, making progress, and developing a deeper sense of community along the way.  Thank you all for your continued part in that journey.
If you weren't able to make it out for a conference, have no fear!  You can always check your students academic progress on Engrade, email any questions or concerns, or schedule a time to check in with me.  There’s lots of opportunity for communication between pick-up/drop-off, my website, Engrade, email, and any parent education nights that we host.  Choose the communication avenue that works best for you.
Quick Reminder - I wanted to remind all parents that we have only two weeks left in the 1st Trimester.  (1st Trimester = Sept. 4th – Nov. 16th)  At that point, we will no longer accept missing or late work from this term.  If your student currently has any missing or late work I highly encourage them to use homework club to their advantage this upcoming week, pace themselves over the next two weeks, and, as always, give us their best effort.  We’re thankful and recognize when students are working hard. 
Enjoy your weekend.  Thanks again to those who were able to touch base with us.
