(There is school for MS/US students.) You will be given an evaluation form, at your conference, to provide feedback on the structure of the student led conferences.

There will be child care in the LS gym for those parents who need services during the conference times.

M.D. Club Initiated
Students Allison Ackerman and Adeja Lambert have started an M.D. Club for Upper School students. They would like to shadow or have mini-internships with individuals who are in medically-related professions. The primary purpose of this club would be to help students learn about career pathways in the medical field. If you know of individuals who could assist with club activities, please contact Dr. Dimke at

Advanced Placement Exam Registration
For parents of students who will be taking Advanced Placement Exams, look for registration documents that will be sent home the week of February 19. It is our intent to have better communication on the entire AP exam process. The faculty will also be making announcements to students on AP registration procedures.

Butter Braid Sales for Music Boosters
