Parent Teacher Conferences

As part of our partnership with your family, we would like to invite you to participate in the Upper School Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday, September 20, 2018.  The first session will take place from 1:00-3:00 and the second session from 3:30-5:30 p.m. This time will be an opportunity for parents and teachers to meet and share together about how to best help your students succeed.  It is our sincere hope that you will come to meet with your child's teachers.

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held in the gymnasium.  Tables with two visitor chairs will be set up around the gym for all teachers to be stationed.  It will not be necessary to make an appointment.  When a seat opens up with a teacher you are hoping to speak with, feel free to take a seat and enjoy hearing and sharing about your children.  Please feel free to contact the Upper School office at (561) 354-1923 with any questions you may have.
