Parent-teacher conferences are an opportunity to engage in conversation about your child’s learning. Parents/guardians and teachers are able to connect face-to-face and communicate openly about student learning, especially with respect to areas of strength and areas of growth. They help build and sustain respectful relationships that allow both parties to share information and develop strategies to support student success.​​​

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Conference Dates

Student Learning Conferences may be scheduled through myCBE/powerschool

The next SLCs are scheduled as follows:

  • March 19, 2020 –  8:00 - 8:45am, 1:30 - 3:30 pm and 4:30 - 8:00pm
  • March 20, 2020 –  8:00 - 10:00 am

Celebrations of learning are when your child is in charge and will lead the experience. Students benefit by accepting responsibility for sharing their learning with to their parents. The student is accountable for the work they produce, improved communication, learning organizational systems and increasing leadership skills. Students learn about time-management techniques, problem solving strategies, decision-making methods, and self-evaluation.

Parents benefit by seeing their children as enthusiastic, adept beings within the classroom who can adequately report what they are doing and how well they are doing at school. Most important, parents have the opportunity to encourage their children and provide positive and accepting feedback for their children’s efforts and learning.

We recommend you schedule approximately 45 minutes for each child to show you everything they are planning to share. Please try not to rush them, this is a really big day for them. Students love to share what they know and what they are learning!  Because this is a special time for parents/ guardians and their children, we ask that extended family remain at home and allow the parent/ guardian the time to bond and examine school work.
