It’s time for parent-teacher conferences!
In this email you find a link to sign up for a conference time for your student. This year, conferences will be held remotely. Please choose one time slot for your student. You will be asked to provide your first and last name, and an email address for us to send the meet link. In the comment section, please provide the full name of your student.
There will be two teachers from the team at each conference. Although it is not possible for you to request specific teachers for your conference, we will do our best to have shared student information as a team prior to the conference.
We strongly encourage students to attend their conference. They have completed a reflection that will guide the conference conversation.
Conference slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The sign-up deadline is October 19th at 3 pm.

We look forward to meeting with you,
Middle School Team
I hope you are excited to start a new year. I know that I am! We are starting the year with a new and fresh curriculum that allows students to learn by doing. Experimenting with math, and allowing students to figure out what they need to know to solve problems is the way of the world. Students often ask "when will I need to know this?" Well, much of the math we learn is about problem-solving. Being able to think about a problem that we encounter, and working our way to a solution is how we function as adults in the world.
I will strive to give you the math skills you need to proceed in high school and beyond. At the same time, I will strive to show you how you will need to figure out what you would need to know to solve your own problems. I am hopeful that we can work together to make math a useful skill that all can enjoy.
When I am not teaching math, I enjoy cycling, hiking, or reading a good book. My kids are all grown up, but my husband and I enjoy our dog and love to be outside with her.
As we move through the year, please feel free to let me know if there is anything that I can do or any question I can answer. To get in touch, you can leave me a message with the office at 875-7500 and I will return your call, or you can email at the following link. email@example.com
Take care and be well,
