I hope you and your family have enjoyed the 2017 Homecoming Week. It has thus far been a great week at D’Evelyn, and I am looking forward to great celebrations at the Bonfire (rescheduled due to weather), the football team’s Homecoming Game, and the Dance on Saturday night. Please accept my best wishes to you and your student(s) for a fun-filled Homecoming Weekend.
Once the dust settles and the decorations are removed on Saturday night, we will transition as a school into an important week for students and families. Our annual fall Parent | Student |Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday, October 4th and Thursday, October 5th in the D’Evelyn gymnasium. We do encourage students to attend conferences to engage in the thoughtful conversations with teachers.
The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, October 4th 5:00 - 7:30 pm
Thursday, October 5th 3:00 - 5:30 pm
The purpose of the Parent |Student | Teacher Conferences is to allow parents and students the opportunity to connect individually with their teachers. There are a variety of opportunities for conversation points presented by the conferences, including but not limited to:
We hope that you and your student(s) will capitalize on this valuable opportunity to meet with teachers.
At D’Evelyn, Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences occur in the Main Gymnasium in an arena format. There are no appointments or set schedules for meetings; rather, parents and students will have an opportunity to meet with teachers on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the evening. Please bring a copy of your child’s schedule for use during the conferences. We will not be distributing copies of schedules during conferences.
To allow all families an opportunity to meet with teachers, we ask that conferences are kept to a maximum of five minutes per teacher. If you need more than five minutes of meeting time with the teacher, please set up an appointment for a future date and time. During conferences, counselors and administrators will also be available to meet with parents and students. Prior to conferences, students 6-week grades will be submitted and posted in Infinite Campus. We will send an update via School Messenger email to let families know when the 6-week grades are all posted in Parent Portal.
Thank you for your continued support of your child in their educational experience at D’Evelyn. We appreciate and rely upon your support to maintain high academic and behavioral expectations for our students. I hope that Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences are an effective way by which you can support your student’s success. I hope you all enjoy a restful, relaxing, and fun Homecoming Weekend.
