News & Announcements

***IMPORTANT***IMPORTANT***IMPORTANT***IMPORTANT***

Dear Titans Team Parent or Guardian,

       

The end of the first nine weeks is fast approaching and we are preparing for Parent/Teacher Conference Days. Since we have nearly 90 students, conferences will be scheduled in 20-minute intervals.  If you feel that more time will be needed, we will offer some alternate times during the weeks immediately following our scheduled Parent/Teacher Conference Days.

 If we have met with you recently, an additional parent conference is not required; however, we will be more than happy to meet again.  As an added incentive, students who return this letter (sent home Oct 24) paper within 24 hours of receiving it will earn a free “Drop-A- Grade” in one of the four core classes.

Please read through the important information below. Thanks for your time and for entrusting us with your child.

                                               Sincerely,

                                                The Titan Team Teachers

                                                Mrs.Barnsback (Language Arts)

                                              Ms. “S”nyder-Jones (Social Studies/Science)
