Want to show our amazing teachers just  how much we appreciate them and all that they do? Here’s your chance. On Thursday, November 9th,PAR is feeding the teachers dinner during parent/teacher conferences. We are providing the main course and would love for you to provide the rest. We are feeding 31 teachers and staff members and will also need help with set-up and clean-up. Dinner will be served around 6:00 during their brief break. Items can be dropped off anytime before 4:00 that day. Sign up at  PAR Teacher Appreciation Dinner-November

If you have been scheduled for any parent-teacher conferences, then you should have received an email with your schedule Sunday night, October 29.  We apologize if you did not receive appointments with some of the teachers you had hoped to see.  Please communicate with those teachers any time after next week, as they are now preparing for their scheduled conferences.  

All conferences will be in the large (north) gym.  Please enter at the gym entrance doors next to the parking lot. Parents move from table to table, according to the schedule emailed to you, to meet with up to three teachers for ten minute appointments with each.  There is no need to check in, but if you are not certain of your schedule, please check with the staff member sitting at the front table.
