Message from the Principal

Greetings to all members of our Baldi community, 

Third grading period report cards will be distributed during Parent-Teacher conference time.  Report cards will be available from your child’s homeroom teacher. Baldi teachers are anxious to meet with parents.  There will be three afternoon meetings for your convenience. 

Date                                                    Last Initials                                Time
Wednesday, April 30,  2014               A through F                             1:00 - 2:10 P.M.
                                                            G through L                             2:10 - 3:15 P.M.
Thursday, May 1, 2014                      M through R                            1:00 - 2:10 P.M.
                                                            S through Z                             2:10 - 3:15 P.M.
Friday, May 2, 2014                            ALL PARENTS                         1:00 – 3:15 P.M. 
                        Please adhere to the schedule above so that a “back-up” can be avoided.  Students will have a half-day of school on the three conference days and will be dismissed at 12:00 Noon.

A room schedule can be found on the reverse side of this letter and there will be student guides in the building to assist you.  If you feel that you need an extended period of time with any teacher, please call 215-961-2003 to make an appointment for another time.

If you cannot attend at any of these times, but wish to speak to any of your child’s teachers, please send a note to the appropriate teacher(s) to request a phone conference.  If you have general concerns, please contact your child’s counselor as follows:
Dr. Flemmings               215-961-2086
                        Please make every effort to attend one of these conferences.  It is only through communication between parents and teachers that students meet their potential.  I look forward to seeing you during report card conferences.
