Parent/Teacher Conference- February 14th

January 31, 2011

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This year, we in Springfield Public Schools, are working to expand opportunities for parents to communicate with teachers regarding student progress. One of the ways we have tried to accomplish this is by adding an additional Parent/Teacher Conference day to the calendar.

This year, February 14th 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.

This week, the school will contact you if your child’s teacher feels the need for a conference. If you do not hear from the school, but wish to schedule a conference, please contact the school to set up a time.

As parents and guardians, you should feel free to check on your child’s progress at any time. This is simply an additional formal conference that we wanted to provide to open lines of communication and to work together to ensure student success.

In addition, Lincoln Magnet School will also be offering two Informational Laptop Parent Meetings. If you have not attended one of the previous meetings and would like for your child to take their laptop home please plan to attend.

Informational Laptop Parent Meeting
Please RSVP by February 8th
12:15 – 12:45 and 5:30 – 6:15

Thank you in advance for your time and effort on behalf of your child.
