Parent Teacher Conferences on Nov. 3 and 6, 3:30-8 PM - Sign Up Here
Sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences, which will take place on Monday, November 3 and Thursday, November 6. While teachers would love the opportunity to meet with the parents of each of their students on those evenings, there are simply not enough time slots to do so, and some teachers schedules are already filled. If you are unable to schedule a meeting with a teacher during these times but you would like to conference with a teacher about your child’s progress, please don’t hesitate to contact that teacher via phone or email.

We had 76 literature entries but were allowed to select nine to advance. Thank you to Mrs. Rook & Mrs. Jones for helping with the judging! It was a difficult process because there were many great entries. If there are 3 or less projects submitted for any given category, all 3 projects are advanced automatically. In December, we will find out which entries will advance from the WWPTA level on to DuPage West (District 36) Region which is comprised of several area PTAs. Watch for an email in December. Thank you to all of the creative students who participated!Yearbook Orders Due by December
Have you ordered a yearbook? If not, now is the time! Students are encouraged to check the list outside of the guidance office to be sure. If their name is on the list, they have NOT ordered a yearbook. Yearbook order forms are available in the Main Office. All orders must be submitted by December!
