Dear Parents,

This year we will be using the conference scheduler PTCFast to schedule parent/teacher conferences. Please visit this page to schedule a conference. 

Once you are on the conference sign up web page please follow these steps:

Step 1: click the checkboxes next to all the teachers you wish to see and click ‘Submit’ on the bottom of the page.

Step 2: Enter your students’ information then your information. Include your email address. After pressing submit you will immediately receive an email with a link to pick times.

Step 3: Pick conference times and press “Confirm and Submit” on the bottom. 

You will then receive a confirmation email, you can also revisit that link to remove and change your appointment. 

Parent/Teacher conferences are an opportunity for parents and teachers to meet to discuss how students are doing academically, socially and emotionally in class.  It is a great opportunity to meet your children’s teachers, and get an idea of how they are performing in school, and what they are working on. It is a great way to strengthen the partnership between parents and teachers.  

Parent/Teacher conferences will be held on the following dates and times:

 

Date Time Grade Levels
Friday, November 22, 2019 9:00-2:20   6-8 Only
Monday, November 25, 2019 1:00-7:00 K-8 and Specialists
Tuesday, November 26, 2019 8:00-2:00 K-8 and Specialists

 

Conferences for classroom teachers K-4 are scheduled in 20 minute increments.  You will meet with your child’s main teacher. For example, in grade 3, if your child has Mrs. Urkevic, you will sign up for a 20 minute conference with Mrs. Urkevic, and then any specialists you may want to meet with.

 

6th grade conferences are conducted in a team atmosphere. Parents of 6th grade students will meet with both Ms. Lynch and Mrs. Blanchard. At that time, you will discuss your child’s progress in all four subject areas. Please sign up for one 15 minute conference slot with the 6th grade team.

 

7th and 8th grade conferences occur in 20-minute rotations.  There are three openings available for each time slot. Please sign up for one 20-minute rotation.  You will meet for five minutes during that rotation with each of the four content area teachers. For example, if you sign up for a 9:00-9:20 rotation, you would meet with Mr. Afonso to discuss your child’s progress in math from 9:00-9:05, then Mrs. Kovacs to discuss progress in ELA from 9:05-9:10, Mr. McSweeney to discuss Social Studies from 9:10-9:15, and then Ms. Herliczek from 9:15-9:20.  When you come in the day of your conference, your specific rotation given to you in the front office. 

 

We are a very unique school in that virtually every parent requests a conference with each of their child’s classroom teachers.  In order to accommodate meeting with all of our families, it is imperative that parents arrive for their conferences on time, and stick to the allotted time for conferences.  If you or the classroom teacher feel as though a follow up is warranted, please feel free to schedule an additional time to meet with the teacher/s at a time that will work for both of your schedules.

 

Conference sign ups will close on Wednesday November 20th.
