Parent Teacher Conferences
Students do better in school when parents are involved in their academic lives. Attending parent teacher conferences is a very important way for you to be involved and help your child succeed.
A parent teacher conference is a great opportunity to:
- start or continue ongoing conversations with your child's teacher
- learn how to help your kids do their best in school
- let your child know that what goes on in school will be shared at home
Get ready for a parent-teacher conference by making a list of the questions you want to ask. A prepared parent with a positive attitude and an open mind is on the right track for creating a successful, year-long partnership with your child's teacher.
Watch the East school calendar for dates for the fall and spring conferences.
East Parent Teacher Conferences for Spring are scheduled for March 9th and 14th
In order to make our conferences more efficient and easier for our families in attendance, parents will be required to register for conferences with teachers.
In order to start the process click on this link.
This will allow you to register for 5 minute conferences for each teacher with whom you wish to visit. Should you need the names of your child's teachers, you can access their class schedule using the Infinite Campus Parent Portal
A few important pieces of information regarding the registration process:
You will be asked to register using the link provided. Once you've registered, a message will be sent to your email address. You can then begin the process of scheduling your conferences. The registration is a two step process.
While we encourage you to schedule time with each of your child's teachers, it is not necessary to schedule a conference with every teacher.
You will note that we are allotting 5 minutes for each conference. Please be considerate of others who have scheduled time after you by keeping your conference to 5 minutes. Should you need additional time with a particular teacher, please contact them and they will have the ability to schedule additional time.
To ensure that you arrive to the next room on time please block at least a 5-10 minute window between each conference. Do not schedule back to back times without a travel break.
All parents must schedule conferences. Should a parent arrive at conferences without a scheduled time, we will provide computers at the door so that they can schedule a time to meet.
Should you need assistance with the scheduler, we have created a short, video tutorial to assist you.
If you continue to experience difficulties, please contact Paul Weisse
While we are confident that this will make our conferences much more efficient for our staff and students, we understand that we may experience a few growing pains.
