Teacher Conferences

Dear St. Ray’s Parents/Guardians,

Report card time is upon us! We are ready to share the many amazing accomplishments that have occurred over the last 12 weeks.

Fall conferences are mandatory for all students. Our fall parent/teacher conferences will be on Monday, November 19, 2018 from 12:00 PM -5:30 PM and 6:30-8:00 PM. There is no school for students on this day. Teachers will be available to visit with you and discuss your child’s academic and social/emotional progress. Report cards will be distributed at conferences.

Please continue reading to see the approach we will be taking for fall conferences this year.

Junior High Conferences (Grades 5-8)

Parents of junior high students will be able to pick up their child’s report card and meet with teachers between the hours of 12:00-3:30 and 6:30-8. Conferences will be 10 minutes in length. Report cards will be picked up from a main table as you enter through door #1.

Because of the number of slots available and the total number of students in junior high, at first, when scheduling your conference, please select ONE teacher to meet with. This is a good opportunity to view your child’s grades in SchoolSpeak to see what teacher you would like to see. If there are available slots open after Friday, November 16th, then you are welcome to make an appointment with other teachers on the junior high team.

Between 3:30 and 5:30, junior high teachers will be holding group conferences. Individual families will be contacted for students whom a group conference will best support their success.

PS-4th Grade Conferences

Parents of PS-4th grade students will be able to pick up their child’s report card and meet with teachers between the hours of 12:00-5:30 and 6:30-8. Conference time slots for students in PS-2nd and 4th grade will be 15 minutes. Due to the size of the class, conference slots for students in 3rd grade will be 10 minutes. If additional time is needed, please do not hesitate to schedule an additional meeting on another day with that teacher for a discussion in greater depth.

Scheduling

We will be scheduling conferences through School Speak! Families should make an appointment if they are expected to be seen by a teacher. We will open the scheduling of conferences on Wednesday morning, November 7th at 10 AM. For the best selection of times, parents are advised to login and schedule conferences early.

When you log in to School Speak, on your dashboard (home page), you will see a list of the teachers. Select the teacher and you will be taken to the page with all the available times. Click ‘sign me up’ next to the time you wish to schedule your conference. It is very simple and user friendly. Scheduling closes at noon on Sunday, November 18th.

If there is a teacher you wish to see for a conference and all of their time slots are filled or the available slots do not work for your schedule, you will need to contact the teacher directly for an appointment.

If you have any questions about the process or do not know your School Speak login information, please contact Kelly Alt at kalt@csrn.org .

Parents who do not wish to schedule their appointments online can call the office and we will work with you to set your appointment.

We look forward to sharing with you the amazing growth your child has experienced this school year!

Sincerely,

Ms. Marjorie Hill

Principal
