Parent – Teacher Conferences are scheduled for:
Wednesday, October 29 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm and
Thursday, October 29 from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm.
There will be no school on Thursday, the 29th or Friday, the 30th. Teachers will email conference sign-up information soon, which will be similar to how we scheduled conferences at the start of the year.
Meeting with your child’s teacher should help build strong family – teacher partnerships. Partnerships that are needed if you and their teacher are to reach your common goal: helping your child get the best education possible, which is especially important during distance learning.
The October conferences will be different this year. In previous years, the focus had been on grades, assessments, and class work. This year the focus will be on how your child is adjusting to the distance learning format and giving time for a conversation about your child.
Be sure to talk with your child before the conference. Find out what they think of school this year and find out why. What parts do they enjoy? What parts are a challenge? Also, ask your child if there is anything they would like you to talk about with their teacher. Make sure your child doesn’t worry about the meeting. Help them understand that you and their teacher are meeting together in order to help them.
