Parent Teacher Conferences
Dear Parents,
We have been listening and have made the following schedule for you to meet your student’s teacher and to be proactive in remediating the academic plan for your student to succeed. 
In previous years we held meetings with parents after report cards were distributed. This year it is the halfway point before the end of the first quarter. OCTOBER 17th (Mark Your Calendar). This year we are asking that your student accompany you to discuss their progress/or lack of progress and what each of them should do differently to be successful in any given class. If you will not be attending, but need or want to speak with the teacher, please send the teacher an email.
Our goal is for every student to be academically successful. We are committed to meeting and assisting parents/students for this to occur. Please always remember that students in high school are not able to succeed without your assistance. We look forward to seeing you on the 17th.
Please remember the following:
  • Two sessions: 3-5PM and 6-8PM
  • Parent and student are encouraged to attend. It is best to hear the plan and how you can help your son/daughter to succeed.
  • MID-Point—plenty of time to learn strategies for success. End the quarter strong !!!
Thank you for choosing a great education for your children. We are here to help.
Mrs. Diane Casey
Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs
