First Semester Parent & Teacher Conferences

Parent/Teacher Conferences on

October 24th & October 25th

 

October 7, 2019
Dear Parents and/or Guardians:

Moline High School will hold first-semester parent/teacher conferences on October 24th and October 25th. The format for conferences allows parents to meet directly with their student’s teachers. We strongly encourage your student to attend the conference with you, as this provides students an opportunity to share in the responsibility for their education. Conferences should be seen as an opportunity for students, parents/guardians, and teachers to work together to improve the student’s educational outcomes.

In order to facilitate your schedule, you are encouraged, but not required to reserve a ten-minute conference slot in advance with the teachers of your choice. We will be using Skyward Family Access to reserve those time slots up to the day before conferences. Please see the back of this letter for step-by-step instructions on how to access the Conference Sign-Up through Skyward Family Access from October 15th through noon on October 24th. You may also sign-up on the day of conferences, on the sheet next to the teacher’s door. This will allow you to schedule appointments and reduce the amount of wait time, but you may not have the exact time you desire.

Due to time constraints, we must limit conferences to ten minutes. If you need to meet with a teacher for a longer amount of time, please contact the teacher and set up an alternative day and time for a conference. Teacher contact will be available at conferences, or you can view teacher's contact information on our website at mhs.molineschools.org and click on the staff directory under the “about us” tab at the top of the page.

~Students will be dismissed at 11:10 a.m. on Thursday, October 24t h ~ The conference dates and times are:

Thursday, October 24t h from noon - 3:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. Friday, October 25t h from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 Noon

Remember, we encourage both student and parent(s) to be in attendance. We look forward to seeing you on October 24thand October 25th.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Trista Sanders Principal
