Principally Speaking

Last night we held day one of our parent-teacher conferences. There are still opportunities to sign up for our second night of conferences. Day two will be the evening of Thursday, November 8 from 4:30 - 8 PM. You may sign up to meet with your choice of your student's teachers. We ask that you sign up to meet with just one teacher. Should you need to meet with multiple teachers, we are happy to oblige this request through an additional meeting time outside of the all-school conference days. Please contact the teacher(s) directly or seek help from the appropriate guidance counselor to set up an additional meeting or meetings.


Please enjoy your weekend!

You Can Still Sign Up for Parent Teacher Conferences - November 8

Please sign up for one ten-minute time slot to meet with a teacher to get a quick snapshot of your student's performance thus far. Should you need more than the allotted time for Parent-Teacher conferences, you will have the opportunity to request an additional appointment for another day.


Below are the most frequently asked questions regarding Parent-Teacher conferences.


Q & A

1. What if there are no time slots available to meet with any of my student's teachers?

Please call the teacher by contacting the school office at 317-745-5491 to let the teacher know that you wish to meet with him or her. The teacher will then accommodate you the best that he or she can by providing a before, during, or after school appointment on another day. As well, a telephone conference is also an option if that works for you.


2. Do I need to attend both evenings?

No, you only need to attend one time-slot on one of the evenings. You may pick which night works best with your schedule.


3. How do I sign up?

Use this link: http://signup.com/go/VfuoecP or go to the school website and click on the signup.com icon.
