Parent-Teacher Partnership

Report Cards

Students receive three report cards during the school year:  November, March, and June. 

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are held in conjunction with the first reporting period.  Students in grades 1-5 are on a minimum day schedule during this week to allow for conferences.  These conferences are a critical component of student success and achievement and we want all parents to hear the same information at the same time.

Working Together

If you have a concern regarding your child, please speak to the teacher first.  Leave a voicemail, send in a note, or send an email and request a telephone call or an appointment.  Please do not attempt to engage your child’s teacher in a lengthy conversation before or after school.  

Teachers are often unavailable during those times due to meetings and they want to provide you their undivided attention.  Uninterrupted conversations are always best.

If you continue to have concerns, after speaking with the teacher, please schedule an appointment with the principal.  The school office will arrange for a convenient time for a meeting with all parties.  We strive to address your concerns quickly and professionally.

Back to School Night

Back to School Night is scheduled in the fall and it is an adult only event.  This is an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher(s), learn about the curricular objectives, and gain knowledge on how you can assist your child to make it a successful school learning year.  It is important to remember that this is not a time to discuss individual progress or concerns (Refer to Working Together section).

Open House

Open House is scheduled in the spring and it is a family event.  This is an opportunity to visit your child’s classroom with your child.  It is important to remember that this is not a time to discuss individual progress or concerns (Refer to Working Together section).

State Testing

Standardized tests (e.g., STAR) typically occur during the first three weeks of May.  Grades 2 to 5 participate in standardized testing.  Please do not schedule medical appointments or family excursions during this time.  Additionally, classroom teachers offer reviews and test practice strategies during the month of April and we encourage all students to participate.  The STAR measures understanding of California Content Standards and these are taught all year so every school day is important!
