It has been an exciting start to the school year, and it is hard to believe that it is already November. As you most likely anticipate, the next month is quite busy in our schools. Our annual conference days are scheduled for next week beginning on Monday and ending Wednesday. Parent-teacher conferences are occurring at every school, and it is the first time that you may have an opportunity to sit with your child's teacher or teachers. Rather than focus on report cards or test scores, conferences afford you the time to have a conversation with the teacher about the progress of your child, share positive points and perhaps some of your child's school work. It is also a time for the teacher to share some areas of success and points for growth. The conference should give you an overall sense of how your child is doing academically, socially and emotionally in school.
On Monday, conferences will be occurring on the following schedule:
Elementary School - 1:00 pm-8:00 pm
Middle School - 2:00 pm-9:00 pm
Tuesday and Wednesday are minimum days at every school and parent-teacher conferences will begin about an hour after school dismissal.
While all elementary parents are able to be scheduled for a parent-teacher conference during these three days, due to the number of students, this is impossible at the middle school in the amount of time allotted. Throughout the school year, conferences are available to middle school parents by request. If you are interested, please contact your child's team leader or guidance counselor.
Finally, the Thanksgiving Holiday will be upon us shortly. Please be mindful that Wednesday, November 22, 2017 is a minimum day.
As always, if you have any questions, please reach out to me via email at email@example.com or by phone at 201-848-5700.
