Fall Conferences

If you have not yet signed up for a conference with your student's teacher, there's still time! The front office is here to help with scheduling and can verify appointment times you have made, if helpful.

Conferences are a time to meet with classroom teachers and specialists to:

  • Discuss your student’s strengths and challenges

  • Highlight growth that has occurred

  • Make goals for the remainder of the year

  • Ask questions and share noticings

  • Learn more about the assessment tools we use and how this guides learning/supports

  • Review reports cards in more depth
