Dear Ron Russell Families,

Welcome to November and the end of the first grading period.  We hope that you will join us for Parent-Teacher Conferences on Monday, November 20 from 2:00-8:00PM and Tuesday, November 21 from 11:00AM-4:00PM and 5:00-8:00PM.  This is a great time to connect and collaborate with teachers and school staff to help our children succeed.

Spanish and Russian interpreters are available both days at all times.  Vietnamese, Chinese, and Somali interpreters are available both days from 5:00-8:00PM.  Sixth grade teachers are in The Commons.  Seventh and eighth grade teachers are in the Lower Gym.  Special education teachers are in their classrooms.

Here are some possible questions for conferences:  What are my child’s strength and area of improvement?  Why is my child’s grade what it is?  Does my child turn in homework on time?  Does my child participate in class?  What can I do at home to help?  How can my child raise the grade?  What should my child do if they do not understand the assignment?

Other events during conferences include the SUN & Family Leadership Team Winter Clothing Drive in the Upper Gym, Wild Wild West Book Fair in the Library, and ParentVUE & Parent Survey in the Library.

I look forward to seeing you all there.

Best to you,

Thu Truong, Principal
