District 54’s parent conferences will be held on Jan. 17 and 18. This is a great opportunity for your children to share their accomplishments. Your children may also share their personal, academic goals with you.
It is important that the teacher knows how an individual is doing in school, and it is important that parents are aware as well. However, it is most important that the child has a sense of how things are going and is involved in the goal-setting process.
If you have something you would like to discuss with the teacher without your child present, please make an appointment for another time. These conferences are designed to focus on the child and the child’s goals and accomplishments. The children enjoy sharing their world with their parents.
Junior high students will be dismissed at 10:40 a.m.; elementary students at 11:40 a.m. and Lincoln Prairie students at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday for conferences. No early childhood or kindergarten classes meet on Thursday, Jan. 17. No District 54 students at any grade level attend school on Friday, Jan. 18. Schools are also closed on Monday, Jan. 21 in observation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
