Talking to your child’s teacher

Talking to your child’s teacher can be intimidating. When parents and teachers communicate well, children benefit. You are a partner in your child’s education. Teachers want to get to know you and work with you.

Learn how to talk to your child’s teacher at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 761 Birch Ave., Rifle from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16. This class is being offered in Spanish only.

For more information, call Literacy Outreach at 970-945-5282.
