DearMeridian Middle School Families and Community,
It is hard to believe that the first quarter is almost over. November 4th marks the end of the quarter, which means that student conferences will be just around the corner. The regularly scheduled district early release day will be on Wednesday the 20th and conferences will follow with early release days on Thursday and Friday, November 21st and 22nd and the following Monday and Tuesday, November 25th and 26th. Wednesday the 27th will be a Thanksgiving early release day.
Conferences are an important part of your child’s educational process as well as a vital communication link between teachers and parents. The conference will provide an opportunity for students, parents, guardians, and teachers to exchange information, discuss progress in school, review current assessment data, and set goals for improved or continued success.
Each conference will last about 20 minutes. Students will share a collection of work from a variety of classes, discuss their work habits and school related skills such as listening, homework completion, cooperation, and inter-student relationships. There will also be a time for teachers to share assessment data and Student Learning Plans with parents as well.
The staff of Meridian Middle School consider conferences as one of the vehicles that links students, parents and teachers as active partners in each child’s education.
I look forward to seeing you during conference time.
Jerry Sanderson, Principal
