Hi parents!

I just checked my appointment schedule for tomorrow’s Parent/Teacher interviews and  there is plenty of room after 12:00 for any parent who would like an interview to discuss their child’s progress.

Please phone the office to see if there is a time that works for you.  If you need an earlier time the secretary may be able to tell you if I am available.

Cheers!
