Monthly eNewsletter School Report


Welcome back from your well-deserved February break. Hemlock School is back in full swing, with a variety of exciting events coming up.

Upcoming Important Events
Parent Teacher Conferences are scheduled for March 4th and 5th. In order to generate the most productive discussions with the teachers, please talk to your children prior to the conference. Also, this week, please take some additional time to monitor your child’s progress during homework and reading exercises. Preparation will help you drive a more targeted, collaborative, positive, and informative conversation with the teachers. Remember to discuss your child’s social and emotional development in addition to academic growth. Finally, try to leave with a clear statement of what you will work on, and what the teacher will do moving forward.

PARP Pick a Reading Partner will take place the first two weeks of March. Please follow the link for a schedule of events and the student tracking sheet. The event launches with a Kick-Off Video on March 1st and a Dress Up Event (wear a shirt with words) on March 5th. This year’s theme is “Lights … Camera …. Read!” and the featured book is The Good Egg by Jory John. Please join us and participate in this interactive, educational, and fun series of events. Don’t forget the Selfie Challenge at the Public Library!.
