Parent Teacher Interview Booking Opens March 17th!
This is a reminder to go online and book for our upcoming parent student teacher conferences using Conference Manager. These are scheduled for Thursday March 20, 2014 from 5:30-8:00 PM and Friday March 21, 2014 from 9:00-12:00 PM.
Teachers have been contacting parents of students that they believe need some extra support and booking appointments this week.
The site opens for booking by parents at 8:00 AM on Monday March 17, 2014 and closes at 4:00 on Wednesday March 19, 2014. Each time slot is 5 minutes. Core teachers recommend booking two consecutive sessions. You may add any comments to let the teacher know if you have a particular concern you would like to talk about. Be sure to put travel time between interviews.
You are able to view marks and attendance records on HomeLogic on a consistent basis now. Please check your child’s information prior to your appointment so you can have the most up to date information available to you as you discuss your concerns. http://www.midsunschool.blogspot.ca/2013/12/midsun-homelogic-news-update.html For more information about Home Logic, please go to http://schools.cbe.ab.ca/b691/parents.htm and click on HomeLogic introduction for parents.
