Trimester 2.2 Parent/Teacher Conferences
Posted on 02/10/2021

Thursday, February 18th from 3:30-5:00pm, via Webex

Tuesday, February 23rd from 3:30-5:00pm, via Webex


Trimester 2.2 Parent/Teacher Conferences will be VIRTUAL and by appointment only.

 

The end of Trimester 2.2 is: Friday, March 5th, 2021

The beginning of Trimester 3.1 is: Tuesday, March 16th, 2021


Each conference appointment slot is 7 minutes long. *PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS ONLY FOR CURRENT TRIMESTER 2.2 classes/students - you will have the opportunity to meet with your Trimester 3.1 teachers during Trimester 3.1 (as we will be replicating this process for each "hexmester" for the remainder of the school year!)


We will use PTCFast to facilitate scheduling of Webex virtual conferences for our Trimester 2.2 parent/teacher conferences. If you are already familiar with this system from our sister schools at the elementary and high school level, simply head here to book your appointments. Each appointment slot is 7 minutes long.  


In order to help our teachers stay on schedule during virtual conferences, we ask families to be aware of their appointment time and arrive to their teacher’s Webex meeting room on time. That being said, once your conference time/appointment has been confirmed (you will be sent an email from PTCFast) to please SAVE that email or enter the information in your calendar, to quickly access this information on the appropriate conference date.  


If you are unfamiliar with PTCFast, a more complete explanation on how to register & signup  is available here.


With needing to host conferences in this format, each conference is consequently shorter than usual. Accordingly, you may find that the teacher with whom you wish to speak to has already been booked up. If this is the case, please reach out to that teacher over email to arrange a phone conference for another time. Staff contact information can be found here


Please note that conferences are optional. If your child is progressing and performing successfully, there is no need for a conference.  However, if you have specific concerns or questions regarding  your child, we encourage you to sign-up for a conference and/or reach out to a staff member by email or phone. *PLEASE NOTE THESE CONFERENCES ARE FOR ONLY FOR CURRENT TRIMESTER 2.2 CLASSES/STUDENTS.


**Support staff including special education, school psychologists, counselors, speech, EL, gifted and talented, etc. will also be available during our conference dates.

As parents, we encourage you to check Schoology to monitor your child’s grades/performance which is updated regularly by teachers.  This is your most immediate source of updated academic performance/progress.  We also encourage you to consult Schoology for additional class information including assignments and upcoming assessments. 

 

Again, please feel free to contact your child’s teachers at any time throughout the school year with any questions you may have.  We want to partner with you to help your child be as successful as possible, especially during the current learning models and the changes that the implementation of those models have brought to all of us during the 2020-2021 school year.
