Principal Dunn Update,Nov. 15, 2020.
Posted on 11/15/2020

Dear CCE Community,

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled to take place this week, November 16-20, 2020 for all K-6th grade families. Please note that teachers may be adjusting their live synchronous and asynchronous instruction this week in order to accommodate parent schedules for conferencing. If needed, conference appointments may be scheduled during morning hours or before or after the Elementary Conference Week.

During the conference, Teachers will ask how your student is experiencing Distance Learning, what your child enjoys, and how your child best learns. Though, if you have thoughts or questions before coming to the conference, please consider sharing them with your teacher in advance. This will support the collaborative effort with your child’s teacher and help them think of possible responses prior to meeting. Your teachers are dedicated to collaborating with you to promote positive outcomes for all students and help them thrive.

Your CARES is appreciated,

Sra. Dunn
