Family/Teacher Conferences

Please read through all of the information below to be fully prepared for conferences.

Purpose: The purpose of our fall conferences is for families, students, and teachers to discuss the student’s progress, grades, and classroom objectives.

Format: This year, conferences will be done in a drop-in format. No appointment is necessary; simply drop in for brief (4-5 minute) conversations with teachers. The drop-in format allows all families to come and meet with as many teachers as they wish. All teachers will be in their regular classrooms. Families are encouraged to come on either day.

Parent Portal: Prior to conferences, families should review parent portal and check for missing assignments and assessments, as well as checking the student's current grade in each class. It is recommended that families and students bring a copy of their current grades from parent portal. We will provide parent portal assistance in the main office. Instructions to access Parent Portal are here (en Español|af Soomaali). If you have questions about assignments, learning targets, assessments, and/or grades, feel free to email specific teachers any time.

Interpreters: Both Somali and Spanish interpreters will be available. The interpreters will be at the main entrance.

Common Questions to ask teachers:

  • How is my student getting along with his/her peers?
  • How is his/her engagement in class activities?
  • How can I support you from home?

If you have a larger concern, please contact the teacher to make a longer appointment.
