eFolder for November 11
Happy Friday! Parent/Teacher Conferences went well, and hopefully everyone got a chance to meet with their child’s teacher. If you did not make it to conferences, but feel that an issue needs to be addressed, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher. Please make sure that you are checking Renweb regularly to stay up to date on your child’s grades. Mid-terms will be emailed before Thanksgiving.
