Hello O'Hara Families,
Our Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held Thursday, November 2 and Friday, November 3rd. All parents are invited and encouraged to sign up for conferences. 

We will be using the same online scheduler for conferences this year that we used last year. Please note that all conference sign ups must be done online; the deadline to schedule is Wednesday, November 1st at noon.

Please read through the following information and instructions regarding the teachers you can/should schedule a conference with. In order to schedule a conference, you must use the link below to pick your time(s).
  • Conferences with Specialists: You are welcome to, but not expected to, sign up for a conference with any specialist teacher your child has. 
  • Parents of children in Preschool - 4th grade: use the link below to sign up for a conference with your child's homeroom teacher.
  • Parents of 5th graders: Please use the link below to sign up with Ms. Hurley. Mrs. Foerstler and Ms. Hurley will be conferencing together. 
  • Parents of 6th graders: We recommend and request that you sign up with one or two of your child's core teachers (Obersinner, Conway, and in some instances Cosgrove). Use the link below to sign up. 
  • Parents of 7th and 8th graders: We recommend and request that you sign up for conferences with one or two of your child's core teachers (May, Cosgrove, Bloomer, Larson, Conway).  Use the link below to sign up. If you need an exception to sign up with additional teachers, please contact Mrs. Whitford in the office. 
New and returning families will be asked to create a login (email) and password (one is not provided) and then sign up for each of your children individually.  *Please note, everyone must sign up for a new account, the system has been reset for 2017.

For families with multiple children at O'Hara, after scheduling your first child you can add another by using the boxes on the right hand side of the screen.

SIGN UP DEADLINE: Conference sign-ups close  Wednesday, November 1st at Noon .  

Alternate Conference Times
Please note:  If your family has chosen to take a vacation during our scheduled conference days, there will not be alternate conference times available.  Our conference days are scheduled more than 6 months in advance, giving ample time for our families to mark their calendars. When a family chooses to take a vacation instead of attending conferences, O'Hara does not accept requests for alternate times. Accommodating alternate conference times becomes logistically difficult for our teachers, takes away from their personal and instructional planning time and negates the purpose of taking days specifically for conferences. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Childcare Available During Conferences
After the Bell will be on-site for both of our conference days and will be providing drop-in care while parents attend conferences. The fee is $5 per child, per drop-in, and is available for O'Hara students and siblings.

If you should have any questions or problems, please contact Mrs. Whitford in the office. 

"Rise up in splendor! Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines upon you."

-Isaiah 60:1
