District Wide Expectation
Please be reminded that we are continuing the District Wide Expectation of incorporating student voice into Student Learning Goal-Focused Parent Teacher Conferences. A simple way to do this is to connect and align the student’s input into the conversation between parents and teachers via student goals in core subject areas, in addition to other subjects as needed and determined by the student.
All students are mandated to reflect on their performance and create a goal. The goals that students create will be used to drive or inform parent teacher conferences. In the event that the student does not attend the conference, the parent may bring the Student Voice/Student Led Parent Teacher Conference Goal Summary Document. Students are invited and suggested to attend their conferences.
We will be using an online scheduling system, Eventbrite, to provide parents and guardians with the ability to pre-register for the most convenient time frame. Parents will need to set up an account and include an email address. It is very important that parents include a personal email - do not use your child’s Scholars’ email account. Parents/guardians who have children in multiple grade levels/cohorts should schedule time slots at least one hour apart. Please use the links below to reserve your time slot today! It is very important that you register for your child’s grade level. Please reserve your time slot as soon as possible as they fill up quickly!
Parents and guardians who pre-register must “check in” with a printed or electronic copy of their appointment on the day of the event. Students are encouraged to join parents at the conference if possible.

We would also like to announce that we will host open classrooms on Friday, March 9th from 8:15am – 10:30am (periods 1, 2 & 3). On this date you are welcome to visit your child’s classes to watch teaching and learning in person.
