THOMAS Parent-Teacher Conferences

Sign-Up information 11/4/20

Dear Thomas Middle School Community,


We are excited to share a virtual sign-up & conference platform called Meet The Teacher for our Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 19th & Friday, November 20th.


Here is some key information about our conferences:

  • Middle school students are expected to attend conferences with their parent(s).
  • This Meet The Teacher platform is now open and provides a seamless conference sign-up that allows parents to select which teachers they wish to meet with for 5-minutes.
  • A Parents' Guide for Booking Conferences is included below.
  • Conference times slots are in 10-minute increments, but conferences are only 5-minutes long. There are break times between conferences.
  • A conference reminder link will be sent upon sign-up completion and again the day before conferences.
  • There is a built-in video feature for easy access to the conferences eliminating the need for multiple Zoom links.
  • If, when you sign up, you only have the option for a TEAM Conference, that is because your child's TEAM is requesting a TEAM Conference. *Only a select number of families have this option.
  • Conference sign-ups are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please know that the TMS Teams are equipped to meet with parents any time a conference is requested throughout the school year. Please reach out to your child's Team Leader if you have any questions.


With hybrid learning, we feel it's extremely important to continue to strengthen home-school connections. We look forward to meeting with as many parents and students as possible.


As a friendly reminder, this Friday, November 6th, 1st Quarter Report Cards will be viewable in PowerSchool.


Lastly, please review the RSVP form below for the virtual Distance Learning Parents' session that we are hosting this Friday, November 6th at 9 AM. It should be an informative session.


Thank you,

~ Lori, Greg, & Nick
