Grade 12 Student-Parent-Teacher Conferences (3:00 – 6:00)
On Thursday, October 27th we will be having Grade 12 Student/Parent/Teacher Conferences from 3:00 – 6:00pm. Students are expected to attend conferences with their parents. Attending the conferences, with your child gives you the opportunity to meet with each of your child’s teachers and discuss “next steps” for their improvement.  By involving students we are inviting them to play an active role in their learning. Students should be actively discussing their progress and developing a plan for improvement.
To ensure that you get the most out of the experience it is important to speak with your child, review their report card comments (October 21) and identify any areas that you would like to explore in more depth with the teacher during the conferences.
The school will be sending out information regarding the conference sign-up scheduling shortly. If you are unable to attend, please contact teachers directly to schedule a phone or Skype conversation.

We look forward to seeing you at conferences on October 27th! If you have any questions about conferences, please do not hesitate to contact me at jrobb@isbusan.org
