We are excited to welcome you to parent-teacher conferences on October 27 and November 3, 3:30-8:00pm. The fall parent-teacher conferences have traditionally been very well attended and in response to feedback last fall regarding the long lines and wait times, we are asking for your cooperation on two details to help ensure that lines move quicker and parents have the opportunity to conference with the teachers of their choice.
Our first request is to attend the evening conference that corresponds to the alpha split for your family. For students with last names:
A-L, we will be available on Thursday, October 27th, 2016 from 3:30-8:00pm.
M-Z, we will be available on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 from 3:30-8:00pm.
Both conference nights will be arena style conferences in the media center and cafeteria with Special Education and Crossroads staff available in their classrooms. Of course, we will welcome families with scheduling conflicts on either evening if there are circumstances you cannot change.
The second request is to honor the 5-minute time limit with each teacher. If you need more time with a particular teacher, we can schedule a meeting for a later date during the school day hours.
Prior to conference night, please work with your child to review their progress in each class. Current grades are available through our ParentVue portal. If your child has a question about an assignment or grade, ask him/her to speak with the teacher. If the concern is not resolved, let the teacher know by calling them or sending an e-mail so that your child can get help immediately. We ask that you please bring a copy of your child’s schedule with their teachers’ names.
