Dear Coventry Hills School Families,
We are very much looking forward to sharing your child's learning progress at the upcoming parent teacher conferences this Thursday and Friday. Thank you for all those who have booked a conference already. Teachers will be reaching out to families who we have not confirmed an interview time. If you cannot make the interview time booked due to illness, we understand and teachers will hold a phone interview during your intended time. Note, that the teacher will be calling you from a “Blocked Number" so be prepared to answer during your interview time.
We are continuing to monitor our illness rates which have been improving and therefore we are going forward with our in-person interviews. For many of our families, this may be their first experience with in-person interviews. As a part of this process, we invite the student to also be at the center of the conversation regarding their learning. The purpose of this interview is to update families about the students' learning progress to date. During your visit, the teacher will be sharing work samples that demonstrate the students' progress in relation to the curriculum standards.
For your in-person conference, enter the school through our front doors. We would ask for your support in keeping our school clean by removing your wet shoes before going up to your child's classroom. There will be chairs outside your child's classroom to sit on if you arrive early. The teacher will greet you at the classroom door when it is your designated time. If it is your scheduled time, feel free to knock to let the teacher know that you have arrived and they can wrap up their interview with the previous family. As we know, as conversations start they can go a bit over. The teachers will be concise and if you have more to share, then a follow up conversation can be booked for another time.
Mrs. Armstrong will be available on Thursday and Friday in our Grand Hall to support families who have not signed up for their MyCBE Account. The MyCBE Account is critical for families in order to book conferences, pay assorted school fees, and to access student achievement information such as the January and June report cards. In addition, School Council/CHEF's is looking for ways to be able to share information with you. If you are interested in receiving updates from School Council/CHEFS, see Mrs. Armstrong for details. We will have our lost and found on display in our grand hall and we encourage all families to take a look as we are gaining quite a collection of lost clothing.
