Middle School Conferences on October 17 and 18
In an effort to reduce wait times for this first set of conferences, we are splitting the conference days—last names with A-L should attend on Wednesday, October 17, and last names M-Z should attend on Thursday, October 18. We will be distributing MAP Student Reports at conferences, so please stop by the table to pick up your student’s scores.
We will welcome parents into the cafeteria for conferences at 4:30 pm both nights and then send you home promptly at 6:00 pm. Middle School conferences take place in-the-round and are first-come, first-served, meaning the teachers will all be at tables in the cafeteria and parents will go around the room to take turns meeting with them. Individual conference times are limited to 5 minutes each, so if there is a concern that requires a discussion longer than the allotted time, please plan on scheduling a follow up appointment with that teacher.
In case you are running late, please note that the cafeteria doors (where the conferences will take place) will lock at 5:45 pm and there will be no more parent admittance to the cafeteria after 5:45 pm.
Messages to Students
If you need to get a message to your student during the school day, please contact the front office, not the homeroom teacher. In middle school, students only report to homeroom for a few minutes in the morning, and then they are changing classes the rest of the day.
Officer Essman, Parker Police Officer and Y.E.S.S (Youth Education and Safety in Schools) instructor will be presenting our annual classes to our middle school students. Cyber bullying, sexting and school violence are a real problem in today’s society and through candid education, we are hoping to give our students the skills they need in order to face these situations head-on. In addition, students will receive tips in keeping safe in our constantly progressive technological world and understand the real-life consequences to negative choices.
These classes have already begun and will continue throughout the next few months, and all of the programs will take place during the school day. Visit the Douglas County Sheriff’s website
for more information on the program. The schedule and topics are as follows:
