Good Afternoon College Park Families,
Thanks to all of the families who helped make our Valentine’s Day celebrations a success. Students focused on friendship and what it means to be a true friend. Third grade integrated their nutrition study into the party, with an attempt to focus on healthy snacks! It was a great day of celebrating special people in our lives.
We have scheduled conference dates on March 8 and 9. Teachers have contacted families regarding meetings using Sign-up Genius, an on-line scheduling tool. We have also worked to hold conferences with families at appropriate times during the year when needs arise. Due to this, not all families will need to hold a conference during the scheduled times. If you have not had a chance to discuss your child’s progress with his/her teacher or scheduled a conference time, please contact the teacher directly.

Dinner forms were sent home with students last Friday. To ensure your family gets their dinner selections, it is important to return the choice forms by February 24. If you have misplaced your original, you may click here for a form.
