From the Principal

We are thankful for the partnership between home and school in the education of your children and, with Parent-Teacher Conferences coming up in mid-February, we have the opportunity again to develop this partnership through direct conversation.  While we can always communicate about students throughout the school year, parent-teacher conferences provide a formal time of making sure that we connect face-to-face about how the school year is going for your daughter or son.
In the next week, you should see a "Sign Up Genius" coming from your child's grade-level teachers in order to have you sign up for a conference time on February 19 or 21.  These conferences are not required, but we hope to have the opportunity to connect with you in person about the progress that your child is making this year.  

The focus of the conference conversation is your child — not a grade on the report card.  

Together, we want what is best for your child in order for her or him to grow spiritually, academically, and socio-emotionally.  We take seriously the responsibility you delegate to us as Christian educators, and we thank you for taking the time to be present at conferences and to support us through prayer, communication, and partnership to help your child to become who God has created her or him to be as a Kingdom-builder and disciple of Jesus Christ.
