ptconferenceNOV 16-20: Parent-Teacher Conferences
School ends @ 12:50

Look for an invitation from your student(s) teacher to sign up for a Parent/Teacher Conference during the week of Nov 16-20. These are important check-ins with your child's teacher(s) to see how they're doing!

Each teacher handles their classroom sign-ups and makes every effort to provide a range of time-slots to accommodate families, especially those with more than one child at Miraloma. Check with your teachers for more info.

School will end at 12:50pm each day that week. After school programs will begin at 12:50pm.
