Academic Progress Conferences

Good Evening

This is High School Principal Steve Morford reminding all parents and guardians that academic progress conferences will be held at the high school on Wednesday, October 5th from 3:30 to 7:30 PM. Conferences will be held in each individual teacher’s classroom. No appointment is necessary. When you visit with teachers - curriculum expectations and teaching methods will be fully explained. Prior to the conference, please visit with your child on their progress, their challenges, and goals in each class.
This is a great time to visit with your child’s instructors as our 1st quarter midterm ends on Friday, September 30th. Grade and class level curriculum expectations will be shared by each instructor. All midterm grades will be posted and available on the Campus parent portal the day of conferences. Report cards will be available in the main office on Wednesday prior to conferences. Please plan on using this valuable opportunity to visit about your son or daughters educational progress.

Thank You
