Recess was quite exciting today!
Believe it or not, this is the last day of the second trimester. Have you marked your calendars for the parents/teacher conferences and the change in our daily routine?
* Wednesday, March 29th - 2 Hour Delay, Conferences 9:00-11:00AM
* Thursday, March 30th - No School, Conferences 2:00-8:00PM
As mentioned in the recent Home School Connection newsletter, we will continue to use the online scheduling program (SignUp.com). The sign up links will be posted on the Nabnasset webpage starting this coming Monday (March 13th) at 3:30PM. The links close on Friday, March 20th at 3:30PM. To schedule a conference, please find your child's teacher on our homepage at:
If you would like a student support teacher, a related service provider, a guidance counselor, the ELL teacher, the literacy specialist and/or the Reading Recovery teacher to attend your conference, please notify your child's teacher before signing up for a conference. Teachers need to coordinate the larger group meetings, and will set the conference day and time for you.
Online scheduling is our new procedure for signing up for conferences. Please plan accordingly. If you do not have access to a computer, contact your child's teacher. If your child's teacher does not hear from you, and your name is not on their schedule by March 20th, the teacher will assume you chose not to participate in a conference.
Report cards will be available on the Parent Portal on Friday, March 24th at 4:00PM. In preparation for your conference, be sure to log on and review your child's report card. We look forward to collaborating with you.
Please join me next Tuesday, March 14th at 6:15PM in the library for Principal Hour. I invite conversation, questions, and ideas. There is no set agenda.
We are looking for volunteers to help with a special art project. We need approximately 4 volunteers per class to assist with sponge painting letters. Please follow the link to sign up:
Dates, times, and details are on the sign up. Thank you!
Have a wonderful weekend.
