We are looking forward to connecting with parents and guardians during our upcoming conferences.
Conferences are an excellent opportunity early in the year to talk with teachers about your student’s progress. Arena-style conferences will be on Thursday, October 5 from 4:30-7 p.m. in the Bear Den (MPR). Online conferences via Teams and phone calls will be on Friday, October 6 from 8-11 a.m. and 12-3 p.m. Below is more information about our upcoming conferences.
Thursday, October 5:
Arena-Style Conferences from 4:30-7 p.m. in the Bear Den (MPR)
All parents and guardians are welcome to attend our arena-style conferences during the evening of Thursday, October 5th. Just show up--no need to sign up in advance. Teachers will keep conversations around 5 minutes so they can talk with all their families. Since conferences will end on time, please arrive early enough to have plenty of time to both wait in line and talk with your student's teachers. Interpreting services will be available.
Friday, October 6:
Online via Teams or Phone Call from 8-11 a.m. and 12-3 p.m.
Parents and guardians may sign up in advance for conferences with any of their student’s teachers or their counselor.
When you sign up, you will have the option of choosing a conference either via Microsoft Teams or a phone call. If you choose a conference via Microsoft Teams, on the day of your scheduled conference, please click on the link in the confirmation email you will receive after you sign up at the start time of the conference. If you choose a conference over the phone, the teacher or counselor will call you at the designated time using the number you include when you sign up.
Because conferences are scheduled to start every 10 minutes, the teacher will end each conference so they can be on time for their next conference. You can anticipate having around 5 minutes for each conference.
Here are video instructions for signing up.
If you do not know the names of your student’s teachers, you can check in Skyward Family Access under the schedule tab.
Attending conferences is optional for parents and guardians. Furthermore, you may choose to only conference with some of your student’s teachers. Our staff is always willing to talk with parents and guardians if you ever think it would be helpful for your student(s).
Note that our students will not attend school on Friday, October 6 as teachers will be in conferences.
