The recent pandemic brought about many shifts to the school calendar as well as changes in procedures in order to keep everyone safe. Interestingly, we found many silver linings.
One silver lining is the virtual method of connecting parents and teachers in order to hold conferences. Parents reported back that it was much easier to connect online than to try to acquire a day off, to coordinate meetings for multiple children, to hurry from one meeting to another, to be delayed due to the conference ahead of yours running long, childcare, etc.
So, we shall continue with virtual conferences.
Virtual conferences will be held on Friday, December 1, 2023.
Parents will be able to schedule their December parent-teacher conference, beginning Monday, November 6, 2023, by clicking the link below.
Good communication between parents and teachers creates a positive atmosphere for children to learn. All of the conferences are scheduled at ten-minute intervals so that every parent has the opportunity for a short meeting with the teacher. If you have a serious concern, you may need to schedule a longer appointment at another time.
