CONFERENCES 11-16 &11-21

Middle School West Families,
We will be hosting Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, March 2nd and Monday, March 6th from 3:45-7:45. We appreciate your active engagement in your child’s education and look forward to the opportunity to meet with you to support your student. Traditionally, students with the last names A-M come the first evening and N-Z the second evening. What is most important to us is your involvement, so please attend whichever night works best for your family.
We want to make you aware of a change in the format for our conferences this Spring that will be different from what you have experienced in the past. We will be hosting families in our classrooms versus the gyms and cafeteria. We are excited to invite you into your child’s learning environments as well as allow you to see a larger part of our school.
These changes will cause some initial adjustments in finding your child’s classroom teachers. I have attached a map of St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West to this email and copies will be available each evening in our school atrium. Also, we encourage you to use ParentVue to monitor your child’s grades but will also provide a list of courses, current grades, and room numbers to assist if needed.
Our second round of conferences is designed to foster relationships and build support for any area of struggle students are experiencing. While our Fall conferences allow us to meet you and begin this relationship, we do focus our meetings later in the year on working together to support your child in any aspect of their education that has presented a struggle. While we certainly welcome all families, we know that many of you have extremely busy schedules and have been keeping up with your child’s progress using our online resources. Attendance at our conferences isn’t a requirement of all parents, though our goal is to be in communication whenever necessary.
If you do plan to visit us on one of our conference evenings we hope that you consider a few ideas to assist you in navigating our school. Please consider bringing your child to the conferences to empower them in their education. They will be able to help you with walking their schedule, introducing their teachers, and showing you their lockers. Also, please bring a copy of their schedule or stop by the atrium to be sure you have the locations of their teachers as well as an update on current progress. Please limit the conference to five minutes to be sure we are able to visit with as many families as possible. Certainly, if you need more time with a specific teacher, we would be happy to schedule another time to meet with you more on your concerns. Finally, our peak times are between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. You may find lower wait times later in the evening if it fits your schedule.
We appreciate the opportunity to work collaboratively with you in educating your child and look forward to seeing you at Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please be sure to let us know how you feel these changes in our conference format were for you as a parent. We appreciate the feedback in an effort to continue to improve.
 
Sincerely,
 
Andy Merfeld
