Parent Conferences in February

January 22, 2012

The second opportunity for parents to communicate with teachers regarding student progress in the “conference day” format is fast approaching. One of the ways we have tried to accomplish this is by adding an additional Parent/Teacher Conference day to the calendar in February.

This year, February 2nd will be used as a full day for the additional conferences. Each school will hold these conferences from 12:00 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. This time frame is shorter than our traditional fall conference. Because of the shorter time frame, schools will be using the conferences to work with families if there is a concern about their child's progress. We will also use the time to meet with parents who have concerns of their own they wish to discuss.

A letter was sent home in the January 20th Friday Folder if your child's teacher felt the need for a conference. If you did not hear from the school, but wish to schedule a conference, please contact the school to set up a time. A request slip is provided below. As parents and guardians, you should feel free to check on your child's progress at any time because we want work together to ensure student success.
