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 Bookings

Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for:

Sep. 19, 2020: Meet the Teachers Open House
Nov. 19, 2020: Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences
Nov 20, 2020: Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences
March 11, 2021: Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences

This is another opportunity for parents to check in formally on student success and achievement – and for students to share their efforts and strategies for learning with parents too.

Conference Attendance

Because Eric Harvie School has a very high level of parental attendance at interviews, we adhere to the policy of only one conference per student per semester.  It is very difficult for children and teachers to truly "repeat" a conference – things are not always expressed in the same way and this can lead to confusion or lack of clarity in communication.  

Please note we will not allow more than one interview per child to be booked on our conference manager program.  If parents have concerns about this policy, they may contact the principal.  The principal or any member of the Administrative team may attend any conference as requested by the teacher, a member of the diversity team or at the discretion of the principal.

Both custodial and access parents may bring a third party (i.e. step-parent, relative, or friend) with them to the parent-teacher conference at their discretion.  Neither the custodial parent nor the access parent has any authority to refuse the other parent's desire to have a third party attend unless that is clearly indicated in a legal document.  However, third party members cannot be present at a conference without a legally connected parent present (i.e. a step-parent cannot attend alone in lieu of a custodial or access parent) unless there is agreement on behalf of the parent attending.

Every year many CBE schools participate in a Terry Fox Run. In 2020, our schools raised an incredible $163,886.64 for cancer research. Thank you to all of our students, staff and school communities who have kept Terry’s dream alive 40 years after his journey began! #WeAreCBE

RT @UsihChristopher: We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make this learning shift for next week. While it is yet another significant change, we hope that it will serve to reduce the current learning disruptions that are continuing to occur in our schools.

Starting Monday, April 19 students in Grades 7-12 will transition to at-home learning for at least two weeks. #yycbe #WeAreCBE

RT @DalhousieCBE: Social distancing requirements hampering reading buddies? No problem! Our @DalhousieCBE Gr 4/5 HUB students recorded read alouds for younger students to listen to. Authentic audience and sense of ownership and pride! #SomosDalhousie #WeAreCBE @yycbedu @CBElanguages

Each year Alberta Education sends an important survey to parents/guardians of students in Grades 4, 7 and 10. The results are used to assess satisfaction with the quality of education & we use the information to improve teaching and learning. #yycbe
