Parent-Teacher Conferences(Registration closes 7 days before each conference date)We are still figuring out how we will create and schedule the conference slots we missed due to the snow delay on Friday, November 16. We will communicate with families when we have a plan.Registration for Parent-Teacher conferences is now open! At the middle school level, conferences are only one of the many ways in which we partner with parents. You do not have to sign up for conferences, particularly if you have already had a meeting with your child's teachers or you do not have any pressing questions or concerns. If you do need a conference, we hope this the information posted on this page will help you navigate the registration process.
This year we are piloting a new approach to conferences with team teachers (math, social studies, science, and English) that will focus the bulk of our available time on new or struggling students and our 6th graders’ transition to middle school.
Conferences will be held on the following dates. Each conference is 12 minutes long:
- November 16
- November 21
- December 7
- December 14
Priority Conferences: You may be contacted prior to the opening of conference sign-ups on October 31 to schedule a priority conference with the main office. If you are scheduled for a priority conference, you will not need to register during the general sign up period with that team or teacher.6th-grade team coffee on November 21, 2018, 9:30-10:30: Drop by at your convenience.
7th & 8th-grade parents and guardians: If all available conference slots are taken and you are not able to schedule a conference, that is ok! There will be other opportunities for you to communicate and partner with your child’s team via email or telephone.
Conferences with off-team teachers: This pilot will not change your access to your child’s off-team teachers (world language, music, special education, arts, technology, engineering, physical education, school counselors, etc.). You will sign up for individual 12 minute conferences with your child’s off team teachers during the same sign-up period.
Registration with Sign-up Genius starts October 31. Those of you who already use Sign-Up Genius for other organizations and events may use that same account for the Diamond parent-teacher registration. (An account is not required, but it is free and having an account will help you view and organize your conferences.) Households without Internet access can schedule conferences by calling our main office.
If you have any questions and or need more information, please do not hesitate to contact the main office at (781) 861-2460
