Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our fall parent/teacher conferences are coming up soon. I want to express to you the importance of attending your conference with your child’s teacher(s). After many years in education, perhaps the most important thing I have learned is that children are most successful when their family is engaged and invested in working with teachers and the school. Creating a strong parent/teacher relationship is most likely the simplest and easiest route to a successful year in school.

Since we do not have school on conference days, I realize there can be a temptation to head out of town or to take a long weekend. While understandable, we are not able to accommodate requests to make up conferences at a later date. The conference dates are the time the School District sets aside for teachers to meet with parents. I ask that you make every effort possible to attend your conference and learn how your child is doing at school.

Conference dates are as follows:

Fall Conferences
Wednesday, October 23rd and Thursday, October 24th (No school on 10/23, 10/24 & 10/25)

Spring Conferences
Wednesday, April 8 and Thursday, April 9 (No school on 4/8, 4/9 & 4/10)

The format for conferences at Three Rivers School is as follows:

  • Grades K through 5: conferences are scheduled with parents by the teachers and are held in the teacher's classroom.
  • Grades 6-8: conferences will take place in the middle school commons. Teachers will be available at tables for arena-style conferencing. Parents may come any time on Wednesday 10/23 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and on Thursday 10/24 between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. You may visit with as many of your child’s middle school teachers as you would like. As long as you arrive by 7 p.m., teachers will stay to conference with you but that is the latest starting time for middle school conferences.
  • Our specialists will be in their classrooms as follows and parents are more than welcome to visit with these teachers while attending conferences:
    • Mr. Niebergall, PE – Gym
    • Mrs. Nores, Music – Music Room
    • Mrs. Wilhelm, Art – Room C50
    • Mrs. Wydra, Title I – Room B10
    • Ms. McKinney, Elementary Special Ed – Room B40

Please enter through the front door of the school.

And don't forget the Book Fair! It takes place in our school library during the same hours as conferences.
