Thank you to all families who attending parent teacher conferences this week! I
received much positive feedback about the conferences. If you did not have an
opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher, please reach out to them to schedule
a conference.
A very special thank you to parents Gina Chung Fortt, Kaya Miller and Linda
Kow and also teacher Fern Seaman for organizing and supporting at tables on the
first and second floor during conferences to provide families with samples of books
at all reading levels as well as helpful resources for families for reading with your
children at home!

to your child’s teacher if you have any questions regarding your child’s report card.

Nishuane’s Annual Holiday Gift Giving
Dear Nishuane Family, thank you so much for your amazing outpouring of generosity during the Holiday
Giving project. It is truly heartwarming to see the number of items people have committed to providing to
help other Nishuane families this holiday season. We are very lucky to have such a warm, giving spirit in our
special school community. We do still have a few remaining items on the Sign Up Genius website.
If you have not dropped your gifts off in the school office yet, please do so by MONDAY, DECEMBER
15th. Please let us know if you are having trouble finding an item or if its shipping gets delayed. Also, if you
are sending your items in your child’s backpack, please let us know so that we can be on the lookout for them.
For those issues, any questions, or if you are interested in volunteering your time to help sort and package the
gifts next week, please contact Claire Kennedy-Wilkins [email protected] or Eileen Lundberg
