PROGRESS CONVERSATION MEETINGS- BETWEEN NOV. 18- NOV. 25
This year we will not be hosting in-person meetings and would like to plan ways to meet virtually or have a phone call with all parents. We are looking forward to connecting with you! Our upcoming progress conversations between parents/guardians and teachers will take place between November 18th through to November 25 prior to the sharing of the report card document on Parent Portal on Friday, November 26th. This time is set to take place in advance of reports, and parents and teachers may focus on the following:
- your child’s learning experiences
- skills and evidence of learning observed in academics
- observations of social skills
- a conversation to include more than the summative marks on the report card- a time to ask questions on the progress of the whole child
- ensuring parents/guardians are informed before the marks or comments on report card are shared- without surprises on the reports
- strengthening the school and home team to support continued progress of your child in school!
BOOK YOUR TIME ON PARENT PORTAL: We will be giving parents/guardians the opportunity to book a phone call meeting or zoom meeting with their child’s teachers. Parents/guardians will be able to see a schedule for Progress Conversation Meetings on Parent Portal by logging in to Parent Portal (https://powerschool.hsd.ca/public/) and click on Parent Teacher Meetings. You can book times online beginning at 8:30 am, Nov. 10th and it will remain open until Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 4 p.m.
If a virtual meeting is booked, the teachers will email the parent/guardian the information required to log into the meeting. If a phone call meeting is booked, the teacher will call the parent/guardian. The available times for all teachers (including homeroom, physical education, music and art teachers) vary during that week. The earlier you log in, the more likely you will be able to book a time/day that works best for you. When booking, you will be required to enter if you prefer a virtual meeting or a phone call meeting.
If the available dates/times do not work for you, please contact the teacher(s) via email to arrange a mutually agreed upon meeting, as we value parent communication.
At 8:30 a.m. on November 10, the available times for each teacher for parents to book will posted on Parent Portal. Please contact the school if you need help making an appointment by calling 204-388-4422 or emailing bothwell.hsd.ca.
