- Just a heads up that this Friday, September 30th, will be my last day before my maternity leave for the remainder of the school year. Mrs. Karen Weiss will be my maternity sub beginning in October. She can be reached at: [email protected] She will also be taking over my Jupiter account for grades, so if you get a Jupiter email from “me” after that date, it is actually from her. Please don’t hesitate to contact her for anything at all. The weekly homework schedule will stay the same, with occasional projects throughout the year. Please help us in welcoming her when you see her around! ?
- Parent-Teacher Conference information will go home sometime this week. I will not be at my conferences, but Mrs. Weiss & possibly Mrs. Floyd will be there in my place. I will type up any notes to pass on regarding each student in 6th grade, as well as any concerns/celebrations that I have for any 7th or 8th grade students.
