Re:     Parent/Teacher Conferences

All Edgewood parents and students are invited and encouraged to attend the student led parent teacher conferences this fall.  Fall break is scheduled for Thursday, October 26th and Friday, October 27th.  School will resume on Monday, October 30th.  Conference dates and times:

Tuesday, October 24, 2017        4:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.

Wednesday, October 25, 2017    8:40 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

There will be no conferences during the meal break on October 25th

Meal break:   10:45 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.


The conferences are conducted in an open format in the commons.  A map of teacher locations will be available at the front table.  You will also pick up your child’s report card at the front table.  You and your student may then visit any teachers you would like to talk with. 

Here are a few pointers for how to make these conferences successful for everyone involved.

Successful Student-Lead Parent/Teacher Conference Strategies

  1. Please limit meeting with individual teachers to 10 minutes
     -If more time is needed, please set up a time to meet with that teacher at another time.

  1. Allow your student(s) to lead the conference
     -Our goal is to have your student(s) discuss their grades with you and their teachers in   

     order to help them take accountability for the grades they receive.

  1. Please honor the teacher’s dinner meal break
     -Please end your meetings promptly at the teachers’ given break times and reschedule  

     if necessary.  Please allow the necessary time to start a meeting right before these


  1. Keep all discussions positive:
     -It takes school, parents and student working together for the best learning to take place.

Announcements via the intercom system will be made prior to break times to remind families and staff when those breaks are to begin.  Thank you and let us know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family.

Successful Living students did kitchen math to cut a snickerdoodle recipe in half. They were to do the math correctly or they would eat their mistakes! Most of the cookies were good!
