A parent–teacher conference is a time when important people in a student's life can talk about how that student is doing in school. It's a chance for you to ask questions about the class and your child's progress, and allows you to work together as a team to discuss ways you both can help your son or daughter at school and at home. For older students, parents can inquire about future coursework that would be suitable for their child given their present and past performance in that subject area. Your child's teacher is an invaluable resource.
Parent-Teacher conferences occur at all school buildings and grade levels. This year they are scheduled for the weeks of October 23 and March TBD
