Parent & Teacher Conferences
Face-to-Face Conferences March 16 & 17
n this age of technology, where grades are available online and teachers are accessible through email, our Board of Directors felt that it was important that teachers and parents have the opportunity to communicate by having a conversation face-to-face. River Mill Academy will hold Face to Face Conferences during the afternoons on Thursday March 16 and Friday, March 17. Teachers will distribute the third quarter report cards at these parent-teacher meetings. Please click the "read more" button for additional information.
