Tuesday, February 21 - 8:00am - 12:00pm is classroom style & 1:00pm - 4:30pm is arena style.
Folks interested in signing up for classroom style conferences, sign up sheets will be available in the library begining Thursday, February 16. Bring your student's schedule with you. Arena style conferences are on a first come first serve basis with teachers seated in the commons and library. All conferences are 10 minutes long.
Arena style conferences are on a first come first served basis. Teachers are seated by department in the commons, cafeteria and library. Parents find their student's teacher, walk up to their table, sit down and have a 10 minute conference. You continue in this manner until you have visited with all your teachers. Since this style is on a first come first served basis, you may have to wait your turn to see a teacher.
Classroom style conferences are in the classroom and you must sign up ahead of time for a 10 minute block. Sign up sheets will be available in the library Thursday and Friday before conferences. You need to bring your student's schedule so you know which teachers to sign up for and be sure to jot down what time you signed up to see each teacher. This style is a bit more private but may take longer to complete.
