Parent Teacher Conferences

As a Black Bob staff are hoping to provide our families and the teachers with a time saving tool this year as we sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences. Families with more than one child will be receiving a link today, Friday, to aid with scheduling multiple conferences for the children. Families that have one child here at Black Bob, will be receiving the link on Monday. If you have any problems please contact me or Mrs. Putthoff.

Use the link below to get started. First find your child’s grade level, desired date and time, then your child’s teacher.


Conferences will be held:

  • October 14 from 4:30 -8:30 PM for 1st Grade-5th Grade
  • October 15 from 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM for Early Childhood- 5th Grade, with a dinner break provided for teachers from 4-5PM on Thursday.
  • Early Childhood/ Pre School and Kindergarten will not have school on October 14 and their conferences are from 8:00 AM- 8:30 PM.

Math Standards

KSDE has published a site specifically for parents who are interested in learning more about math standards. The website is listed below.



Mid-Quarter grades went out last Friday. I just wanted to inform you that you can keep up with your child's progress within the classroom, by checking his/her grades on parentvue. A form with your information was sent home in your enrollment folder. If you have misplaced that or if you are having trouble getting signed in, Terry in the office can help you with that.
