Parent-Teacher conferences for grades K-12 in the North Tama School District will be held on Monday, September 30 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, October 3 from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. Conferences for elementary students will be at pre-scheduled times. Conferences for secondary students (grades 7-12) will be held in the MPR. Junior High conferences will be student lead with set times. Junior High parents will receive their conference times from their student(s). There will be an early dismissal at 2:25 for all students on Monday, September 30. Thursday, October 3 will be a full day of school for all students. There will be no school on Friday, October 4. Secondary conferences (grades 7-12) will be conducted in the MPR. We hope this will make it more convenient for parents to have an opportunity to meet with all the teachers they wish to visit. You do not need to call for an appointment time.
Letters with the appointed times for elementary conferences were mailed home last week. If you did not receive these details, please call Bev at 478-2265, ext:155.
The faculty and administration would like to urge parents to take advantage of this time which has been set aside specifically for the parents and teachers to confer. Both the parents and teachers bring special insights and understandings of the child to a conference and if these two perspectives can be brought into focus, everyone gains-especially the child.
