Happy November Menlo Park!

Fall is truly here. We have been busy learning and growing as a community. We have had the best time getting into classrooms, and getting to know students and families. Menlo Park is such a special place. We enjoyed seeing everyone who was able to attend Boo BINGO. It was a joy to come together as a community and have fun. As we look ahead,  there are some exciting things on the horizon.


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

  • There is Early Release (1:40pm) Monday, November 21st.
  • Conferences will be Monday, November 21:  4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m & Tuesday, November 22:  8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m
  • We will be offering HYBRID options: both in person or virtually.
  • Your classroom teachers will be reaching out to schedule conferences beginning in November.

We have been using ParentSquare as a major mode of communication. Classrooms can post info, and families can message with teachers in an easy way.

The ParentSquare app is the easiest way to use the platform. It is free on Apple Store and Google Play.

You can register without the email invitation. Just visit (or install the ParentSquare app). Follow the prompts to sign up. 

YouthTruth Survey: 

Our annual YouthTruth survey opens November 21st, 2022. Menlo Park and DDSD use this information to help us plan and make decisions to support our students. We would love all families to participate. We will be sending out more info the closer we get. We will also have computers at conferences (Nov. 21st & 22nd) for families to be able to easily take the survey.

Go Pumas!
