Parent Teacher Conferences

October 4, 2021
 
You Are Invited!
 
Join us for fall Parent/Teacher conferences on Monday, October 4, 2021. You met your child’s teachers at Back-2-School night, now spend a little more time talking with them individually to find out how your student is progressing in class. We are excited to have the opportunity to engage with you in the education of your child!
 
Conferences will take place in two 3-hour blocks of time. The first will run from 12:00 to 3:00 PM, and the second will run from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. The teachers will be stationed in the commons and gymnasium, ready to share their insights with you.
To help make your time efficient and productive, please consider the following tips:
  1. Print off your student’s schedule ahead of time.
  2. Be prepared to have a conference that lasts just under 5 minutes – if you need additional time you can always get in touch with the teacher later.
  3. Find the short lines – some teachers will have longer lines than others, and there is an ebb and flow in the process, so if you see a chance to have a quick discussion with another of your child’s teachers, take advantage of the opportunity.
  4. Teachers will be arranged alphabetically by their last name, with A’s starting in the commons and Z’s in the gym.
  5. If you run out of time at the end of the night, please remember your child’s teacher is an email or a phone call away.
 
Attached is a tip sheet for parents from the Harvard Family Research Project that we think is pretty good.
 
Please let us know if you have any questions.
