October 13th Conference Schedule
Student-led conferences are scheduled for Friday, October 13th. Students are required to attend the conference. 3B homeroom parents, please email me the time you would like to meet, and I'll add your name to my schedule. After your conference with me, you are welcome to go next door to see Mrs. Lambert. You do not need to schedule an appointment with her. If you would like an in-depth private conference, please request an additional conference on another day. 3A homeroom parents will schedule conferences with Mrs. Lambert.

I look forward to seeing you!
