Dear Colleagues,

On Thursday we will meet here at Greenacres for our Spring Conference.  We will be receiving specific details concerning plans for the afternoon from Edgar in a few days. In the meantime, enjoy the weekend. Thankfully, the weather is warming up just in time for a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!  Image result for shamrock      

Have a relaxing weekend!




Second Trimester Report cards will be made available to parents on Wednesday, March 20th at 12:00 p.m.

Principal Coffee Dates for the spring are listed below. This is an opportunity to share information and to engage in an informal talk that sometimes demystifies the next grade level for parents.  Please decide on a teacher to attend the meeting for approximately 15 minutes to give parents some ideas for what they can expect on your grade level. Please note this is not a curriculum meeting. Matters such as grade level expectations around independence, homework, class trips and general shifts from the previous grade to the next are some ideas for discussion. Please use the Google Doc to indicate the teacher who will be attending.  I really do appreciate your participation.  Thank you.  (Sometimes the link is not visible in the blog so please click on the words “Google Doc” to access the link.
