EARLY DISMISSAL – APRIL 19TH

5610943b-3120-4edb-a8e2-659d534961e2-large16x9_640x360_60819C00BSUEEOn Thursday, April 19th, all students at Cambridge will be dismissed at 1:25pm for student/parent/guardian/teacher conferences. It’s an opportunity for you to connect with your child’s teacher so that everyone is on the same page for the last two and a half months of school, and to develop a support plan so your child experiences a successful completion to their school year.

There are many different formats of learning conferences that teachers use, and your child’s teacher will share the specific format they are using. If you are unclear about what April 19th looks like, please contact your child’s teacher.

How can you prepare for April 19th? Please review your child’s FreshGrade portfolioparent-teacher-conference_circle to get a sense of whether your child is meeting grade-level expectations. During the conferences, you may want to inquire about what the teacher sees as your child’s strengths and challenges and how these are being addressed. With two and a half months left, it is a good idea to check in regularly if there are any learning or behavior problems. Finally, inquire about your child’s work habits, independently and in large- and small-group instruction, and ask how your child gets along with other students in class and during lunch, recess, phys-ed, and other classes.

The staff at Cambridge Elementary thank you in advance for making the time to attend the upcoming student/parent/guardian/teacher conferences and look forward to sharing your child’s successes.
