The last conferences of this school year are coming up Monday, May 5, and Tuesday, May 6. Soon there will be a sign-up sheet to reserve your conference time on the elementary kitchen door. Conferences are a very important part of your child’s education at the Magnolia School. Since we don’t send home report cards, test scores, or graded papers, this is when students and teachers communicate directly with parents about how students are performing in school. Students and teachers spend a lot of time preparing for conferences. Parents can help by signing up for a conference time, arriving for conferences on time, spending time on home conference materials sent home by teachers (check your parent pockets), and following up with recommendations teachers make for assistance at home. Thank you for helping conferences run smoothly.
