The conference times will remain the same, only the day has changed. Any parents who will now not be able to attend the conference should contact their child's teacher to set up a different time to visit.

Kindergarten Information Night Scheduled for March 19:
We want you to know that our Kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten Information Night will be held on Thursday evening, March 19 at 6 p.m. in the School's Commons (Lunchroom). Please enter at the District Office (Eagle entrance). We will have signs posted to help show you the way. Parents and future students will begin by being able to eat a light supper together in the commons.
At 6:30 p.m., the students will have some special activities while the parents remain in the commons for a chance to find out more about Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten in New York Mills.
This special information night is a time for us to share school policies, curriculum, and health information with parents. Needed paperwork will be explained and tours of the building will be given to those interested. If you are unable to attend, the information and paperwork will be sent to you.
A special letter will be going out in the next few weeks to the parents of the potential kindergarteners we have on our census. If you have any questions, please call the elementary school office at 385-4208.
