Parent Teacher Conferences (Repeat): With parent/teacher conferences right around the corner, please remember that teachers highly value the time set aside to meet with parents and guardians. Teachers are not able to schedule conferences outside of the designated days in order to keep intact their regular preparation and collaboration responsibilities. If you are unable to attend conferences during the scheduled times and the teacher has a concern, s/he will communicate with you via phone or email. Thank you ahead of time for cooperating with this structure. The conference schedule is as follows:
March 22nd: 4:00-8:00 in the fieldhouse
March 23rd: 1:00-3:00 and 5:00-8:00 in teachers’ classrooms.

Senate Scholar: Congratulations to Joe Pencak who applied for and was selected as a participant in the week long Senate Scholars Program. Taken from the website, The Senate Scholar Program is an intensive week-long educational program offered by the Wisconsin State Senate. Admission to the program is highly competitive and is limited to 33 academically exceptional high school juniors and seniors from around Wisconsin. Each Senate Scholar receives a hands-on, up-close view of the Legislature’s role in our democracy. Senate Scholars gain experience in such diverse areas as policy development, constituent relations, and processing legislation by working with Senators, legislative staff and University of Wisconsin faculty. Joe just returned and said it was a remarkable experience to see everything he is learning in class play out in real life.
Kind Regards, Amy Levek
