Good morning, Parents.
It seems a little surprising to share that the first quarter of the school year is coming to an end this Thursday. It does not seem very long ago that the students had just come back to school and were settling into their new classes. However, here we are preparing for the first grade reporting period of the year.
With the quarter ending on Thursday, November 6th, the HS teachers will be submitting their grades by early Monday morning. During the day on Monday, our guidance department will be processing each students report card, and they plan to have copies of the report cards available by 3:00 pm on Monday when the HS Parent/Teacher Conferences begin. When parents come to Parent/Teacher Conferences on Monday or Tuesday, you can pick up a copy of your child’s report card in the guidance office and go see your child’s teachers in their classrooms. We will also provide maps of the school designating where each teacher’s classroom is located. You do not need to schedule appointments for HS Parent/Teacher conferences because all of the teachers are available between 3:00 and 7:00 pm. Our turnout of parents visiting with teachers for conferences is generally mild—certainly not as busy as the Elementary School—so parents usually find they can talk with most of their children’s teachers in about 45 minutes. Occasionally you will encounter short wait times for certain teachers, but we will set up a few chairs outside each classroom so you can sit and wait comfortably for a few minutes until it is your turn. Our experience would suggest that the busiest times are after dinner from 5:00-7:00 pm, so if you can come earlier you will find you can be more efficient with your time.
We hope to see as many of you as possible for Parent/Teacher Conferences on Monday, November 10th and Tuesday, November 11th from 3:00-7:00 pm. We will also be offering sessions on how to use Infinite Campus as listed below in the HS Conference Room on Tuesday, November 11th. The Infinite campus demos/workshops will be at 3:30, 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30.
Hope to see you next week Monday or Tuesday,
