Parent-teacher conferences are a great opportunity to:
- share academic progress and growth based on classroom observations, testing data, assessments, portfolios, and assignments
- learn from parents or guardians so teachers can be better informed about students' strengths, needs, behaviors, and learning styles
- discuss enrichment or intervention strategies to support students' learning
- discuss issues that may be interfering with students' learning and growth
At HHS and HMS, Conferences appointments are walk-in during listed days/hours. Parents of K-5 students can schedule an appointment time at the links below.
