Parent/Teacher Conference Day

Parent/Teacher Conference Day
Wednesday, September 13th
There will be no classes on this day.

To Middle School Parents: Middle school parents will receive an email from their child’s advisor with instructions on how to sign up for a parent-student-advisor conference. This is a new conference procedure for 5th and 6th grade, and we urge you to include your child in the conference. 7th and 8th grade students are again preparing to lead their conferences with parents and their advisor. If you need a separate conference with a particular teacher, please let us know and we will arrange that for you, though possibly on another day. We believe that involving students in their educational conferences (and actually having students take the lead in 7th and 8th grade) is an important step in student ownership of their academic lives.
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s advisor and/or Dr. Andrews.
Childcare: For Those NOT Enrolled in the Before/After School Program: Drop-in childcare is available for current EDS students between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. during conference times only. Signs with drop-in room information will be posted on that day.
For Those Enrolled in a Before/After School Center Program: For your convenience, the center will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for students currently enrolled in Lunch Bunch, Gingerbread, or After School (Three or Five Day Program). If you plan to send your child to the center on conference day, you MUST e-mail Elise Folk the student name, drop-off and estimated pick-up times by Friday, September 8th. This information is very important for staffing and lunch count. A pizza lunch will be provided for all students who register. If your child does not like pizza, you may send a peanut free lunch. If you do not sign up by September 8th, we cannot guarantee a spot for your child on P/T conference day.
