Fusion Communication: February24

Hi all,
Great day - and team Red won the student / faculty basketball game… or was it White? Never can remember - guess that’s the point:) Hope everyone enjoys the break as much as your children will.

Spring Parent Conference Sign-up
We are providing the link below to sign up for spring conferences.  Due to the shorter allotted time-frame for spring conferences, offering times to to meet with all Fusion families within the conference window is not possible.  We have often focused this time of the year on meeting with 8th grade families to support the transition to high school, however we want to make sure that we make time for all the families both 8th and 7th that feel the need to meet.  When deciding whether to sign up for a conference, please keep in mind whether you have met with us recently or have a meeting scheduled with us in the near future in order to be fair to other families.  Also, if you do not feel the need for a conference, but would like an email update about your student please feel free to email us and we would be happy to accommodate this.
