    Greetings Star Lake Families,

    Well, even though the cold weather lately may be saying, “It’s still winter!” spring actually is right around the corner! And springtime is a busy time here at Star Lake. We have student led conferences, Battle of the Books, spring break and state testing all coming up!

    Speaking of student led conferences; the district has added seven hours of conference time to our fourteen current hours.

    Here’s what this means for Star Lake:

    1.  ALL teachers will be here for conferences Thursday, March 21st from 8:00am to 7:00pm and Friday, March 22nd from 8:00am to 11:00am. These hours went home to you on our original conference form and are the best days to schedule conferences if you have more than one child at our school. We will do our very best to schedule conferences close together.

     2.  Because the district plan to add seven hours to conferences came after our initial conference schedule went home, teachers have the option to choose when they would like to offer the additional seven hours.

    They may offer the following time slots, in addition to 8-7 on 3/21 and 8-11 on 3/22, in a combination that equals seven additional hours

         --3:30pm-6:30pm on Wednesday, March 20th

        --11:30am-2:30 or 3:00pm on Friday, March 21st 

        --slots before or after school 3/18-3/20 and/or 3/25-3/29

    3.  Each classroom teacher will send home an email, hard copy or remind app message with their specific additional conference hours.

    4.  If you have already returned your conference time preferences and are happy with the original conference dates of Thursday 3/21 and Friday 3/22, you do not need to do anything additional; your child’s teacher will send you a confirmed conference time by Monday, March 18.

    5.  If you wish to change to one of the additional conference times presented by your child’s teacher, please return the form, or call or email them after they provide you with their additional hours.

    Star Lake staff met the 100% goal of meeting with all families for SLCs  last spring and this past fall, and our goal is to meet that again this spring.  We hope these additional conference times help our families to join us!

    Best regards, 

    Kris Rennie, Principal
