It’s report card day!  Check your child’s backpack for that all important document!  Each envelope will contain an interview form.  Most interviews are Tuesday, February 20th.  Some teachers are piloting a program where you book your interview time online.  Look for the google link - it’s specific to your child’s teacher.  Hop on the internet and book a time that is convenient.  On the other hand, some teachers are requesting interviews by form letter indicating a time and asking if you are able to make the appointment.  Whichever method is used by your child’s teacher, please reply as soon as possible as Monday is Family Day and there is no school for students.  As mentioned previously most interviews are on Tuesday due to the Boston Pizza Night on Thursday.
