Students and parents convened on the upper school campus today for the first of two days of parent-teacher conferences. This year’s conferences began on Nov. 25 and continued on to Nov. 26, the first two official days of students’ Thanksgiving Break.

School was not held on these two days, but students were encouraged to accompany their parents to meet with their teachers to discuss their progress in the class as well as areas for future improvement. 

Students will receive the week after conferences off for the Thanksgiving holiday, and school will reopen on Dec. 2, two weeks prior to the start of finals.
