Ms. Lobelle’s Report Card Conference Sign-up Form on Google

Parents: Please sign up for a conference using the Google Forms link. As per the Parent alert, I have decided to have earlier conference times – I now begin conferences at 2PM! If a time is not shown, it is taken/unavailable. Students must attend conferences with their family. If you are unable to attend for any reason, e-mail me directly at dlobelle@olcacademy.net or post a comment in the form. We can arrange an in-person or phone conference for a future date and time. Thank you!

Only three families have yet to sign up. If you can’t make it, or have another reason for not being able to attend, e-mail me immediately. Otherwise, please choose one of the remaining times listed on the Google Form. 

Look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow!
