Registrations for Parent-Teacher conferences will open Monday, September 21. The conferences, which will be held on October 8 and 9, will be held in-person, here on campus. No students will be permitted on campus, however. Parents should attend the conference without their children, to meet with their child’s teacher.
These conferences are a very important part of your child’s education at SSIS. Each family is expected to schedule an appointment to meet with their child’s teacher.
Why Do We Have Parent-Teacher Conferences?
Parent-Teacher conferences are an important part of your child’s development and success at SSIS. During conferences, we review your child’s academic progress, discuss your child’s social and emotional growth, set goals for your child, and discuss the best way to support your child in reaching his/her goals.
