Dear Parents/Guardians:

Our Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on the afternoons of Wednesday, March 15, Thursday, March 23, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and the evening of Wednesday, April 5 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. During these times, you will be provided with an opportunity for a private conference with your child’s teacher(s). Each parent-teacher interview is limited to six minutes.

Once again, we will be using the online scheduling program, PickATime, which enables parents to schedule their own appointments via a home computer. Included with this letter, you will find the steps necessary to schedule your teacher conferences. Once scheduled, you will be able to print a full schedule of the day you have chosen. Access to this website will be available Friday, March 3, 2017 at 12:00 a.m. PickATime will close 24 hours prior to the first conference day.

Please be aware that some special area teachers may appear on your child’s list of available teachers that they currently do not have. (Ex., Teachers your child will have in 4th Quarter). These teachers will not have any input on your child since they are not currently enrolled in the class. Be sure to make note of the specific encore class your child is enrolled in during conference dates. Select conference appointments with current encore teachers.

If a specific teacher has a full appointment schedule that day, please contact your child’s teacher via email or your child’s school counselor. We will make every effort to have your child’s teachers contact you via email or by phone, to best meet your request.

** Parents must use the PickATime program to schedule all parent/teacher conferences. If you do not have a computer, access to the middle school library computers will be available during several evenings for parents to use and schedule appointments.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Middle School main office at 460-6400. We look forward to seeing you on March 15, 23 and April 5, 2017.

Sincerely,

Monroe-Woodbury Middle School Administration
