Parent conferences are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week. If you signed up, you should have received a confirmation e-mail with the time of your conference. If you need assistance, please e-mail us and we can let you know your time slot. We are looking forward to meeting all of you.
Wednesday is half day. Kids will be dismissed at noon. Friday we are off school altogether.
On Wednesday, the health fair and career fair will both be happening at Hixson. Kids will rotate through the career fair and health fair during third and fourth hours. Both are usually interesting and fun events for the kids.
We are still waiting for a few more field trip forms to come in for our trip to the St. Louis Symphony on November 11. If you have not already returned the slip, please do so ASAP.
There are no after school activities this week because of conferences. We do still have morning session every morning from 7:45-8:25 and kids are welcome to come up and work or read during that time.
This week is the Scholastic Book Fair. Please stop by the book fair in the library annex when you come in for your conference. Tomorrow is Hixson Night at Papa Johns. Fliers went home with all of the pertinent information.
We also explained how grading will be a bit different this year. That information is on the "Grading" page. When you look across the top of the blog, click on the "Grading" page and hopefully that information will answer any questions that you may have. We can also talk at conferences about grading this year.
