Spring Conferences

Student-Led Conferences

Eighth graders are in the process of preparing for parent-student-teacher conferences that they will lead this May.  Our 8th grade advisory program guides students to reflect on student work, progress, and goal setting throughout the school year. Students will lead a conference with their parents/guardians as well as their advisor in May before or after school. Therefore, parents or guardians will be offered an opportunity to meet with a faculty member before the end of the school year.  The students are doing a great job of preparing for their conferences, and we can't wait to meet with everyone later this spring!  Your student's advisor will contact you at the end of April. Please be on the lookout for that message.

Needs-Based March Parent Conferences

The March parent-teacher conferences are needs-based. If you need to speak with the 8th grade team as a whole group before the May conference dates, we can send you a conference invitation.  If you do not have any pressing concerns, we are looking forward to seeing you at student-led conferences in May!   To receive a conference invitation, please email Doug Haskins,
