Reminders: Parent/Teacher Conferences and the OCEF/Chili’s Fundraiser.

Good morning, Parents.

Since I sent a message last week about Parent/Teacher Conferences, I just wanted to follow up with a few quick reminders this morning.  
  1. The HS has Parent/Teacher Conferences are tonight, Monday, November 9th, and tomorrow, Tuesday, November 10th from 3-7 pm each evening.  Our faculty would love to see as many parents as possible.  Our structure for the evening is to meet with parents on a first come, first serve basis, and parents can move about the building as they wish to meet with teachers.  If you need a map of the school with room assignments, please stop in my office.  Generally it is not that crowded, so waiting to see teachers is rare, or the wait is not very long. 
  2. First quarter grades have been reported by the faculty and our guidance department is currently processing report cards.  We plan to send the report cards out later this week.  If parents wish to check their student’s grades prior to conferences, you are able to do so via Infinite Campus. 
  3. Please note that during parent-teacher conferences, the Oostburg School District will be offering drop-in assistance for all technology and communication related questions on Tuesday, November 10th in the Innovation Room (MS Room #205). This will be a Q&A format, and we welcome you to stop by with questions on any number of topics such as Infinite Campus (grades, fees, attendance), district website (navigation, calendars, social media, blogs), and technology in the classroom (iPads, Google Apps, Chromebooks).  If you are unable to make these times, we are happy to assist you via email or phone.
  4. The Oostburg Community Education Foundation (OCEF) fundraiser with Chili’s ends November 30th.  If your family has a meal at Chili’s, please let them know “you are with the OCEF fundraiser” or show them your OCEF card.  If you do so, Chili’s makes a donation to OCEF which will ultimately support our schools.  
Hope to see you at Parent/Teacher Conferences.
