I hope that everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather! Conferences begin tomorrow. Please take a minute to note your day and time. Each conference is 20 minutes. This time always goes by quickly so if you have things to discuss that we don’t get to, please email me. Please don’t be offended if I end our time because I want to give each family their designated conference time. I look forward to meeting with all of you.
