Scheduling Conferences

The faculty look forward to meeting with parents each conference season! Because our parent-teacher conferences have become an increasingly utilized connecting time for parents, we are encouraging parents to choose the three teachers whom they would most like to meet with and schedule a group conference with those teachers (unless an individual parent-teacher conference is all that is needed). This way, our hope is that more parents will have the opportunity to connect with some of their student's teachers (as much as possible). Of course, if you are an existing family and feel that a group conference with all of your student's teachers is necessary, we are glad to accommodate you. Thank you!

College Brown Bag Visits
