Fall Conferences Information

Student/Parent/Teacher conferences for the fall will be held in the OMS lunchroom on November 17th and November 19th from 4 PM to 8 PM.  At OMS, there are no sign ups for conferences, instead the teachers are all seated at tables in the lunch room and each conference lasts 5 minutes.  You simply approach the teacher(s) you would like to speak with when they are open or wait in line for them.  

If you do not feel that 5 minutes will be enough to discuss your child, please contact the individual teacher to schedule a meeting at a different time.

Due to the NCTE conference in Minneapolis, I will not be at OMS on the 19th of November and will thus not be available for conferences that day.  I have therefore set up an alternative day for conferences on November 12th from 3:30 PM to 8 PM.  The conferences on the 12th will be scheduled so that you do not have to wait for an open slot.  To secure one of these spots on the 12th, please follow these directions:

1. Click this link to go to our invitation page on VolunteerSpot: http://vols.pt/9mGNit 
2. Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account on VolunteerSpot) 
3. Sign up! Choose your spots - VolunteerSpot will send you an automated confirmation and reminders. Easy!

 Note: VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact me and I can sign you up manually.

I realize that the spots on the 12th are limited due to the longer time for each, and will therefore also be available on the 17th in the lunchroom for the 5 minute conferences.  That being said, I can also meet at a different time if you would like or feel we need to have a longer discussion about your child.    Please just contact me.

Next week, the students will bring home a parent questionnaire as we prepare for conferences, please take a moment to fill it out so I can make sure our meeting fulfills your needs.
