Menlo Park!

Who would have thought we would have such a snowstorm in February. We feel fortunate that everyone made it home safe and okay to hunker down for the blizzard. 

Spring is just around the corner and there are some exciting events happening.

Spring Conferences:

Spring Conferences are a time for teachers and caregivers to connect. We get to come together to talk about student learning and growth. 

  • Wednesday, March 22nd: 1:40pm Early Release 
  • Wednesday, March 22nd:  4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m Conferences
  • Thursday, March 23rd:  8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m Conferences
  • Friday, March 24: No School
  • We will be offering HYBRID options: both in person or virtually, whatever works best for your family.
  • Your classroom teachers will be reaching out to schedule conferences at the beginning of March.

Spring Break:

Monday, March 27th to Friday, March 31st is Spring Break. Menlo Park will be closed for this week.

Classified Appreciation Week

The week of March 13th is Classified Appreciation week. This is a time to celebrate all those who support throughout the building (Reading group teachers, classroom IAs, custodial, office, kitchen). 

Family Social & Family Club

We have made a shift where our Family Social now happens 30 minutes before the Family Club meetings (every 3rd Wednesday of the month). Family Social is a great opportunity to meet with Nick & Sarah and give feedback about Menlo Park. Family Club is the group that fundraises and organizes events at Menlo.

  • Family Social: 5:30pm
  • Family Club: 6:00pm
