The dates and times of student presentations will vary according to your child’s assigned teacher; you will receive an email that will link you to the “Sign-up Genius” schedule for your specific teacher’s schedule. From there, you can select a time that works best for you and your student. Each teacher has created a schedule that contains a variety of morning, afternoon, and evening hours to better accommodate busy lives! On the day of the event, your student will have twenty minutes to share and discuss with you his/her digital portfolio. As always, we are available via email or phone call to set up a showcase with families and students who cannot attend during these appointed days. Don't miss this chance to hear from your student!
