Snow Day Packets: Last Mon. & Tues. Grandma & Grandpa Schoner worked on snow day packets.  I was able to see what Ms. Snyder prepares for her students.  With Catholic School activities on Thurs. & Fri., I have to say our granddaughter’s most productive part of the week had to be those snow day packets! I loved the religion and science assignments. 


Parent Teacher Conferences: The conferences scheduled for Feb. 19 & 20 will be optional.  They will be scheduled between parents & teachers.  On the report card envelope is an area where either parents or teachers may request a conference.  If you would like to schedule a conference check the box and a teacher will contact you.  Teachers will contact parents if they request a conference.  This is the first year we have tried this, so please let me or your child’s teacher know how you feel regarding this option.
