    Welcome back to school!

    I hope everyone had a safe weekend during Typhoon Mangkhut. It sure was a strong storm. Thank you for reading your We Chat group messages, respecting parents by only responding to me directly instead of on the group chat, and for informing students to check Microsoft Teams for assignments. I will continue using Microsoft Teams and Class Notebook to establish communication with students throughout the school year, especially during inclement weather.

    Tomorrow, September 19th, will be our first Parent / Student / Teacher conference of the academic year. As such, this is not a regular school day and students will not be coming to school for the entire day. Students should come with you to the conference. This is an opportunity to check in with your child about his/her progress this year and work together to set goals to help him/her continue to be a successful learner.

    Focus of Parent/Teacher Conferences

  • Share how students are settling in
  • Explain recent assessments and set goals for students
  • Clarify the role parents can play in supporting these goals
  • Ensure you have access to the Blog, Seesaw portfolios, we chat class group, etc.
  • Meet with EAL teachers, Chinese Language teachers, and other specialist teachers (if desired)

    Your child will sit with their iPads at the carpet in the classroom during the first 10 minutes to work on their summative project while we discuss data. Then, students will attend the last 10 minutes of the conference, explaining his/her academic and social goals for the first trimester. Please have them bring their iPads.

    Please make sure to be on time for your scheduled conference. We only have 20 minutes to confer. Any additional time outside the scheduled conference will have to be established at a later date / time. Thank you for understanding.

    Looking forward to seeing parents and students tomorrow at conferences!
