Prior to coming in for Parent/Teacher Conferences, spend a few minutes with your student(s) reviewing the information already provided on Compass. You will want to access and review the following info on Compass prior to attending: tardies, attendance, missing work (assignments, projects, quizzes, tests), poor grades, poor citizenship, discipline, etc. Aside from accessing samples of student work, you will be able to find almost everything you need on Compass.
Please be assured that our teachers want to meet with you concerning your student(s). Help us be both effective and efficient by accessing and reviewing Compass data first, prior to attending, so that your discussion(s) can be focused and meaningful.
Please note the following:
- ELEMENTARY (Kindergarten - 3rd Grades): On average, our Kindergarten through 3rd grade teachers will only have about 15 minutes to meet with each parent or guardian regarding their student(s). Therefore, please schedule your 15 minute appointments online via your Compass "parent" account. If you have not scheduled conferences before please see the attachment for assistance in scheduling you appointments. K - 3 teachers will have a dinner break from 4:30 - 5:00 pm.
- SECONDARY (4th - 9th Grades): As you can imagine, it's nearly impossible for our 4th through 9th grade teachers to meet with all of the parents or guardians of the students they teach (many of our secondary teachers work with at least 175 students), so please come prepared to speak to your specific concern(s)/issue(s).
Note: If you have serious and/or several concerns/issues to address, we encourage you to set up a time with the teacher(s) either prior to the scheduled Parent/TeacherConfer
ALSO, we're pleased to announce that we are holding a Book Fair in the library during P/T confernces as follows (all young children must be accompanied by an adult):
