PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES & FAMILY POTLUCK DINNER
On May 22nd, we will be holding Parent Teacher Conferences from 4:30pm – 6:15pm with a Potluck Dinner from 6:15pm – 7:30pm.
From 4:30pm – 6:15pm, parents are invited to meet with classroom and cluster teachers. This is not a traditional Parent Teacher Conference. Please note that because of the number of students we serve, conferences are by appointment only. There will be no report cards given prior to this conference. These meetings are intended for parents who have follow-up questions after the March conferences or have questions related to how to best support their child over the next month and through the summer.
Please indicate on the form that went home in backpacks if you plan to attend. The teacher will assign the time of your conference. Time for each conference will be determined by demand. Your teacher may reach out to you if he/she feels that a conference is necessary. Conferences will be a minimum of ten minutes, and if a teacher cannot meet with all of his/her parents on the 22nd, that teacher will schedule an alternative time with you.
We also hope you can join us for our first ever Family Potluck after our evening conferences from 6:15pm – 7:30pm. This will be a time when parents, students and teachers are out socializing in the school yard (weather permitting) and enjoying each other with some delicious food. Sign up Here to Volunteer: Family Potluck
Friday, May 25 is our Annual Field Day in Prospect Park for 1st - 5th grades. Students come to school as usual that day and then, by class, make their way to Prospect Park. (Kindergarten will have their own fun planned. Please touch base with your K teachers for more information.)
Don’t forget - we will be wearing our PS 154 T-shirts! Permission slips and general information went home in backpacks already.
We would love for you to join us. Find out more here: Sign Up
