Dear Parent/Guardian,

During the fall, our Back-to-School nights and Open House days provide parents with an opportunity to visit the school, meet the staff and observe classroom instruction. The third link of this vital communication process between home and school is the parent-teacher conference. The conference focuses on your child in relation to these programs and can be very helpful in providing both teacher and parent with specific and essential information. Conference dates and times are as follows:

Tuesday October 30, 2018 1:45 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.

Thursday November 01, 2018 1:45 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.

Wednesday November 07, 2018 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m.

Thursday March 14, 2018 1:45 p.m.- 5:00 p.m./6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m.

  • Conferences will be scheduled using the on-line scheduling system at

  • Parents are first required to register ~ please refer to the attached instructions for more information. Once registration has occurred, parents may begin scheduling appointments with their student’s teachers. Registration and scheduling will close 24 hours before the first appointment time on any given conference day.

  • Registration and Conference Scheduling (for October and November conferences only) will begin Friday, October 19, 2018.

  • Parents of Fifth Grade students ~ Please schedule conferences with your homeroom teacher only. Fifth grade teachers will be prepared to discuss all content areas.

Please remember that daily communication with your child’s teachers may always be done through the agenda book or email, and conferences regarding student’s progress may be scheduled throughout the school year. If you have specific concerns at any time during the year, please contact your child’s teacher.

We look forward to seeing you at our parent-teacher conferences!
