Principal's Message

The month of November is a time to give thanks. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for reading with your children, checking homework, communicating with
your child’s teacher and countless other things you do as a parent to encourage and support the education of your son or daughter.
November is certainly a busy month! Be sure to view the upcoming important dates in this newsletter so you don’t miss anything!

This year's Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, November 16th and the sessions are from 1:00-3:00 and 4:30-7:30.

It is vitally important for you to attend our conferences so that you can discuss your child’s progress with his/her teacher. All faculty and staff members are in the building during conferences for your convenience so that you can feel free to communicate with all of the teachers that instruct your child. Please ask your child's teacher for the Parent Handbook which has all of our school policies.

Lastly, we need all families to update the blue cards. Some students have not submitted a new blue card, which has made it difficult for us to contact the parents in the event of an emergency. Also make sure that you submit the web/photo permission slip so that we can post pictures of your child while participating in our special events on the school website.

From the Parent Coordinator

As we gear up for another exciting school year, I'm excited to assure that my purpose here at Young Diplomats Magnet Academy is to serve as a helpful resource to our families.  Coming into the 2017-2018 school year; I encourage all parents to communicate creative ideas and concerns that many of us have regarding your child's education.  My role in partnership with the principal is to facilitate support networks and workshops of interest to you.
