Register for parent teacher conferences
Have you ever been to a parent - teacher conference at Guido? These conferences are held once per semester, giving you a chance to sit down with the teachers and discuss your child’s progress. But that’s not all they are intended for. This is also a great way to get to know the teachers in your high school. Often we hear the names but we don’t have a face to go along with it. Maybe your child is a straight ‘A’ student and you’ve never considered attending a conference. Please don’t let this stop you. The Parent-Teacher conference is a terrific opportunity to strengthen and build your relationship with the high school staff, enabling you to begin to get to know the men and women who instruct and influence your children.
How does it work?
The process is easy. About a week before the conferences, you will receive an email from the office stating that electronic booking is now open for scheduling. There will be a link attached to this email in order to book these appointments on the website. It is recommended that you book your child(ren)’s conferences ‘back to back’ as much as possible for time and efficiency sake. A typical conference is 6 minutes in length however if you require more time, you may schedule a double time slot. Once you’ve selected the time slots that work for you, a confirmation email will be sent to your inbox detailing the schedule. Print this off and take this with you on conference night. We encourage you to have questions prepared which you would like to discuss with the teacher. Also, talk to your child beforehand to get an idea of how they are managing. This preparation will make the brief conference all the more valuable for everyone.
The conferences are held in late October and early April (see the School Calendar for exact dates). All appointments are booked online during the week of the conferences.
Where do I go?
The conferences are all held in the gym. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your first conference time slot. The bell will ring when one conference ends and the next one begins. The teachers will sit alphabetically. Their names will be attached to their desks so they should be easy to find! But no worries if you are struggling to find a teacher. There are always plenty of people standing by the door ready to greet you with a smile and help you through the process.
So if you’re a new parent who has never been or a returning parent who never thought the conferences were for you, please join us in the gym on conference night and show your support not only for your child but also for the teaching staff as well. We hope to see many of you there!
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email the school at email@example.com.
