Parent Teacher Conferences

We are going into our Quarter 1 Parent/Teacher Conferences. Minimum Days start this Thursday, Sept. 13 and continue until Sept. 21st.

This year our parent-teacher conferences are different.  Instead of a report card, you will receive a conference form. This form is meant to facilitate and encourage two-way communication between teachers and parents.  This is a perfect opportunity for your child’s teacher to learn from you about how your child works at home and specific strategies that motivate your child to do their best.

You will notice a change in how your child’s progress is being reported to you.  It will highlight the preliminary assessment information that has been collected so far this school year.  This will help create goals and next steps for your child this school year.  Come equipped with information on your child’s strengths and areas where you would like to see your child grow.
