2020-21 SEPTEMBER MEET THE TEACHER CONFERENCE INFORMATION​

Thursday September 24, 2020 – “Meet the Teacher" Virtual Meetings
September 25, 2020 – Individual Program Plan (IPP) Virtual Meetings
As we continue to adjust to the reality and impact of living during our very “interesting" times, we will be shifting from having in-person conferences at the school to conducting them virtually using an online tool called Skype to allow your child's teachers to be able to host a Meet the Teacher evening virtually. This is due to the changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to follow Alberta Health Services (AHS) guidelines.
Our first set of Student Learning Conferences are scheduled for September 24 and 25, 2020, and will look a little different than they did last year.  With the Restrictions on Face-to-Face Events, we were requested that all schools avoid scheduling face to face events such as Meet the Teacher nights and Conferences. So, in order to facilitate a personal connection between parents and teachers, we will be utilizing alternate virtual methods for connecting and will be having “Meet the Teacher" meetings on September 24, 2020. 
At a number of times over the evening (4:00 pm, 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm), each teaching team will do a live “meet the Teacher" presentation on Skype where parents will virtually connect with their child's teachers and learn more about learning in their child's classroom. Teachers will present three times through the night to allow flexibility for parents to attend whichever session works best for them to attend.
We will also have a number of virtual “Meet the Principal" sessions to all parents for 20 minutes to hear from myself, our new Assistant Principal Melanie Bond, and our new Student Services Lead Teacher Eleanor Gillis.
 
These conferences provide you with the opportunity to meet your child(ren)'s teacher(s) virtually. Teachers will not be in a position to give you an academic progress report at this early stage in the school year. The focus will be on what classrooms, routines, supports and learning will look like as we move further into the 2020-21 school year.
Important: 
·      Thursday September 24 – Early Dismissal for students at 12:30 pm
·      Thursday September 24 – Meet the Teacher Conferences (booked at numerous times)
·      Friday September 25 – Teachers will be following up with and meeting with parents of students who are working on an Individualized Program Plan (IPP). Teachers will email these parents to arrange a time as soon as possible.
In the future, our next Student Learning Conferences will be held on November 19 and 20, 2020, and March 25 and 26, 2020. The CBE is working to connecting our Conference Booking Manager online booking system with Microsoft Teams so we can have individual virtual conferences with each parent in a secure, private online environment.
 
How to connect to a TMC Virtual “Meet the Teacher" Meeting:
·      Your child's teacher will send you an email with the link to join a Meeting via Skype.
·      Please check your Junk Mail if you do not receive the invitation, or email your child's teacher and they can resend the meeting link.
·      Enter the meeting 5 minutes prior to the Meet the Teacher meeting time in order to ensure your technology is working properly. It took Mr. R's test subject less than one minute to download it and get it going.
·      You do NOT need a license for Skype to attend.
·      When asked, SIGN IN AS A GUEST (as there is no download needed)
 
Parents, if you only have one child at TMC, you only need to attend the “Meet the Teacher" session that is most convenient for you. The three sessions will be repeats of each other to accommodate families with multiple children.
Skype Session Times on Thursday September 24, 2020
4:00 pm to 4:30 pm – First “Meet the Teacher" Skype Session
5:30 pm to 6:00 pm – First “Meet the Principal and Admin Team" Skype Session (optional)
6:00 pm to 6:30 pm – Second “Meet the Teacher" Skype Session
6:30 pm to 7:00 pm – Second “Meet the Principal and Admin Team" Skype Session (optional)
7:00 pm to 7:30 pm – Third “Meet the Teacher" Skype Session
Teachers will email you the specific meeting URLs for their teaching team later this week. Please stay tuned!
Educationally yours,
Derek
