Cool temperatures are setting and we are experiencing the beginning of a gorgeous autumn season. Today, October 15th marks the 25th instructional day of the 2018-2019 school year and we are eager to review progress with your student.
Columbia River High School will hold parent/teacher conferences during the following sessions:
• Thursday, October 18th from 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm
• Thursday, October 18th from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
• Friday, October 19th from 7:30 am- 10:30 am
Parents, you have the choice to attend one of the sessions listed above. Teachers will be available at tables in the commons. After you enter the Main Hall, you will be able to locate your child’s teachers by assigned table. This format is often called “arena style”. This format appeals to us because we are all in essentially the same space for conversations about academic progress.
The design of the parent/ teacher conference is to be a short (roughly 10 minutes) discussion on your students’ progress and performance over the first six weeks of school. This is a great time for you, as a partner in the learning, to ask your own clarifying questions about the larger objectives of the course, details about the standards and ask questions you may have about the subtle nuance of a teacher’s delivery or approach to learning.
We always approach the conference as an opportunity to learn more about your student’s progress and about your student as a person. Please take advantage of this terrific opportunity!
