Parent-Teacher Conference Wednesday in city school district
The Elementary Division of the Dunkirk City School District is looking forward to hosting a Parent-Teacher Conference Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Research shows that a close parent and teacher relationship greatly en-hances communication be-tween home and school. The communication, in turn, greatly increases children's progress in school.
The faculty and administration of Dunkirk elementary schools are looking forward to discussing student progress.
It is hoped that all parents and guardians will make every effort to attend the scheduled conferences.
Teachers will meet with parents on a first-come, first-served basis.
Parents and guardians should contact their child's school if they have questions.
