PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES & FAMILY POTLUCK DINNER
TUES, MAY 22
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES - 4:30-6:15pm
POTLUCK DINNER - 6:15-7:30pm
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.
