    Thursday, October 27, 2016, is the date for Paulo's Fall 2016 Parent-Teacher Conferences. Students will be dismissed at 11:20 a.m., with usual bus transportation provided. Afternoon conferences will run from 12:20-2:20 p.m., and the evening session from 4:30 -7:30 p.m. This year, the first marking period report card will be distributed on Monday, November 14. Come meet your child's teachers! Let's work together to insure that this will be a great year!

          Please also note that attendance in school on that day is very important, as students will take an English performance task assessment that will be used as part of your child's second marking period grade, and will be useful practice for the actual state test in April.
