BASKETBALL AT MATANZAS
The Dolphins girls’ basketball team is looking great on the basketball court! Under the extraordinary coaching of Coach Parry, our diligent Dolphins displayed athleticism, teamwork, and a supportive community spirit as they faced off against Whited on Tuesday. Thursday they take on Austin Creek here at Matanzas. Go Dolphins!
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES
The weeks of September 23rd and 30th are parent-teacher conferences. Meeting with your child’s teacher provides an excellent opportunity to not only get to know your child’s teacher and the curriculum expectations for the school year, but it is also a chance for you to help your child’s teacher get to know your child. You may want to prepare for your conference by reflecting on your child’s strengths, areas of challenge, interests, and talents to share with the teacher. This important information about your child helps teachers get to know your child not only as a scholar, but as a whole person. Conferences truly help teachers meet every student’s needs as they work in partnership with you and your student for a productive and successful year. Remember: The two weeks of parent-teacher conferences have a release time of 1:55 each day!
