Parent-Teacher conferences for grades K-12 in the North Tama School District will be held on Monday, February 27 from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, March 2 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. We hope this will make it more convenient for parents to have an opportunity to meet with all the teachers they wish to visit. Junior High conferences will be student lead with set times. Junior High parents will receive their conference times from their student(s). Students will attend a full day of school on both Monday, February 27 and on Thursday, March 2. There will be no school on Friday, March 3.
Continuing with our paperless policy, the Spring Conference letter and your child's conference time were sent by e-mails on February 14.. This is the only information you will receive regarding conferences, so please keep track of it, so you know when your conferences are scheduled.
Letters with the appointed times for elementary conferences were mailed to parents requesting paper copies. 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.
