​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

Parent-Teacher Conference Dates

  • Please see our calendar for upcoming dates and times.

Format

Student-led conferences offer families an opportunity to spend up to an hour in the classroom for each child. During the conference, your child will lead you through examples of their work and have you try some learning activities. You will also have some time to talk with the teacher about your child’s learning. Four (4) families will be in the classroom at a time. Some families will be looking at student work while other families are meeting with the teacher. When you arrive for your conference, please go straight into the classroom. Your child will know the routines and expectations, and they will start showing you their work. When the teacher has time to meet with you, he or she will invite you over for a conversation.

Please note that Kindergarten will have five (5) families from each classroom booked into each hour to accommodate all families.

Information about Teacher Meeting Time

The time with the teacher will range from a few moments up to 15 minutes depending upon the student’s progress and questions you may have. If you require additional time with the teacher or a more formal meeting you are welcome to book a meeting with your child’s teacher on another date. Email your child’s teacher to request a mutually convenient time to continue your conversation.

Parents with More Than One Child

Parents with more than one child at the school may book more than one conference within the hour time slot. A family with three children, for example, may book two children at 10:30 and one at 11:30. They could then spend 45 minutes in each conference or as much time as needed. It is recommended that parents with young children bring books, toys or games to keep the younger siblings occupied during conferences so that parents can focus on the conversations with their child and their child’s teacher.

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis https://t.co/7DoX3d45Ca
