In the Nest This Week:

We would like to thank everyone that joined us for the Parent/Teacher Interview evening yesterday.  It really is the only formal time in the school year for parents to meet with their child and child’s teacher.

Thank you for making time for building the relationships between home and school.  If you were unable to make your appointment, please contact your child’s teacher(s) to rearrange another time.
