Weekly Message - November 16, 2020
Hello Spring Brook Parents –
Due to conferences, the November PTA meeting has been moved to tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17, at 7:00pm. All members will receive a Zoom link via email. This will be the last PTA Meeting of 2020.
We hope you can join us!
Today is the Last Day to Sign Up for Parent/Teacher Conferences
We are pleased to offer 15-minute individualized parent/teacher conferences via Zoom, on Thursday November 19th and Monday, November 23rd. Conferences begin every 20 minutes. You will receive a zoom link for your remote conference.
Conference days and times are as follows:
Thursday, November 19th: 4:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Monday, November 23rd: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM and 4:30 PM – 8:00 PM
We would like every parent to meet with their home room teacher. If your child has a different teacher for math, that teacher will provide information about your child’s math progress since you will only be meeting with your child’s homeroom teacher.
Specialists that work with your child can be invited to the homeroom conference as needed. If you have a need to meet with a P.E., Art, or Music teacher, please email them directly.
To schedule your conference, log in to ParentVUE at the designated grade level time and select “Conference” from the menu on the left side to see the times available. Once you have scheduled your conference, you can click “Email Schedule” to have the details emailed to you. You can also go back to ParentVUE at any time to view the information. Conference scheduling will remain open through November 16.
