News from Addams – October 9, 2019

Dear Addams Community,

We wanted to remind you that student-led conferences will be held tomorrow, October 10 and Friday morning, October 11. If you have not signed up to come for conferences, it is not too late.

The following are some reminders for conferences and upcoming events:

Infinite Campus Parent Portal
An excellent way to keep abreast of your child’s academic progress is to regularly check the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Please click here for a short tutorial to help you maximize your Infinite Campus Parent Portal experience.

Addams Family Bingo Night
On Wednesday, November 6th, we are excited to announce that we will be holding our first ever Addams Family Bingo night. Come for some fun and to win valuable prices. Please click here to sign up.

Family Photo Booth
Please stop by our photo booth in the library at conferences tomorrow to take a fun “championship” picture with your family. It is our goal to send the pictures out to the community in a celebratory slide show.

Social-Emotional Student Survey
Thank you to those parents that took the survey about your child that was emailed last week. We will have a station setup at conferences tomorrow for those that have not yet completed the survey or need assistance to complete it. Stop by the library for help and details.
