Dear ES Parents,

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, April 12th and Friday, April 13th. There will be no school for students on those two days. Conferences provide an opportunity to learn about your child’s progress, achievement, and challenges. Students are not generally in attendance for the conferences in grades Pre-Kindergarten through First Grade, unless the teacher or parent requests the student’s presence. However, students in 2nd Grade through 5th Grade are coming to school and leading the conferences with guidance from their teacher.

Student Led Conferences (grades 2-5) do not follow the same format as the Fall Parent Teacher Conferences. All ES teachers in grades 2-5 are working with your child so they can lead the conference, sharing evidence of their growth during the school year. Your child will be reviewing his/her work in their folders and around their classroom. We believe that the Student Led Conferences are a very powerful way for students to be accountable for
their own learning and to evaluate their progress with the help of their teacher. Some benefits of Student Led Conferences are that they build self confidence and self-esteem, develop communication and critical thinking skills and allow students to begin the process of being actively involved and accountable for their own learning. Your child’s teacher will be present in the classroom during the conferences helping any student that may need assistance. If you have specific questions or concerns to discuss with your child’s teacher they would be happy to arrange a meeting.

You will be able to book and sign up for your PTC conference date and time on the SIS website’s front page. Parents can select the best time slot available. This booking site will be open from Tuesday, April 3rd from 11:00 am until the following Monday, April 9th until 3:00 pm for parents to make appointments.

Need A Translator: If you are requesting a translator please fill out the Translator Request Form attached to an email that has been sent to you from the ES Office, and then send it to school as an email or with your child to give to your child’s homeroom teacher.
