Parent - Teacher Conferences

Parent -Teacher conferences are in full swing! Teachers have sent out emails with information to sign up via Sign-Up Genius for a conference time this week. Please check your email or your students Skyward account for more information. Conferences will be held in person or via Zoom this year with your child's homeroom teacher.

Each session will be 10-15 minutes each. We will be sharing important information about your child's progress this year for all classes. If you feel like you need to conference with one or more of the other teachers, you will need to sign up on their sign up list. Please let us know if you have any specific questions or concerns by emailing your child's homeroom teacher before the conference so that we can have answers or help ready before we meet.

We are looking forward to meeting with you. We have so much to share with you about your child.

Important Information to Help Your Student!

What Can We Work on at Home?!?

You may have noticed that your student does not have daily homework. However your student is responsible for bringing a fact grid to Math class every day! The only time a student should have homework is to make-up missed work from an absence or work that was not completed in class. Here are some suggestions if you want your student to have extra practice.

Daily Fact Grid (multiplication chart 1-12 & 25's)

Read daily for at least 20 minutes

Practice fact fluency (multiplication & division)

Log in to ClassLink and work on Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies in Progress Learning (this used to be Education Galaxy), or check out Sora, our online digital library.
