Happy Valentine's Day! 


Greetings from your principal:

As the weather turned colder for a short spell this week, our thoughts turned to the springtime and the 2nd annual Mazzuchelli Mudder. On Thursday we had a kick-off assembly for this Parent Association-sponsored fund(d)-raising event which is scheduled for Fri., May 15. That's still three months away but the enthusiasm among the students is already growing. More specific information will be coming your way in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, we hope to see you at Parent-Teacher Conferences next Monday or Wednesday night if you weren't here last night. We have many successes to celebrate!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences are designed for families to meet with the child's mentor and teachers to discuss information that is already available via PowerSchool, Edmodo, the Summit platform, and the progress report. Because current technology offers access to this information, no significant surprises should be anticipated during Conferences. Parents who choose to attend Conferences should sign up for a 15-minute time slot under their child's mentor's name. The "OPEN" times indicated below are for parents to visit with teachers in the arena-style set-up in the Commons and in the gym. No specific appointments with teachers will be scheduled during the "OPEN" times. The same 4:00-8:00PM schedule will be used on all three Conference days: Thurs., Feb. 13 & Mon., Feb. 17 & Wed., Feb. 19.

4:00-4:30 OPEN

4:30-4:45 Mentor

4:45-5:00 Mentor

5:00-5:45 OPEN

5:45-6:00 Mentor

6:00-6:15 Mentor

6:15-7:00 OPEN

7:00-7:15 Mentor

7:15-7:30 Mentor

The instructions that outline the sign-up process were emailed out to parents today and can also be found on the Mazzuchelli webpage under “Quick Links” or by clicking here.
