February 7, 2014 Volume 17 Issue 20 Dear Meadowview Parents and Guardians, During the week of February 10th you are invited to meet with your child(ren)’s teacher(s) during Conferences. During the first conference of the year parents and teachers established goals for the children. Throughout the first portion of the year your child’s teacher has been working with him/her with those goals in mind. As your child has achieved his/her goals, new goals have been established. At our second set of conferences the students are invited to join us. By including the students in the conference they are able to articulate their learning with you and receive immediate feedback while they share their progress. In order to arrange conference times that best meet the needs of all of our parents, students will be dismissed at: 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 13th (P.M. kindergarten attends) There will be no school on Friday, February 14th. All conferences will be scheduled during the week of February 10th. If you will be out of town, please consider the conference schedule in your planning. If you are unavailable the teachers will schedule a phone conference with you. The teachers look forward to conferring with you regarding your child’s learning. Since the students will be involved in their conference, many teachers have asked that you arrive to their classroom fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled time. Please watch for information from your child’s teacher with specific details. Many of you are in continual communication with your child's teacher through the use of the voice mail system, e-mail, notes to school and phone calls. However, if you feel you require additional time to speak with the teacher without your child present, please let your child’s teacher know and that will be arranged. Sincerely,

Laura Morgan
