Lower School Conferences
At its core, education is a partnership between parents and teachers. As our Family Handbook says, our teachers “are honored by the great trust that parents have placed in them. This trust between the parents and the school must be maintained by ongoing communication and mutual understanding” (p. 3). One of the key methods we use to build trust and maintain open communication with you, our parents, is our annual conferences.
Lower School Conferences this year will be held on Monday, October 10 from 7:30am to 4:30pm. To make meeting with your child(ren)’s teachers as convenient as possible, all conferences will be held virtually. For security reasons, virtual meeting information will be communicated by teachers in their classroom newsletters.
Conference Sign Ups
Please sign up for a time to speak with your child(ren)’s teacher(s) over Zoom. To ensure that there are sufficient slots, conferences are limited to 15 minutes. If you find that you need more time, teachers will be more than happy to schedule a follow-up meeting at a later date.
Virtual meeting details will be communicated in the classroom newsletter. Please log on a few minutes before your scheduled time, and the teacher will let you in when he/she is ready for you. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or Thomas.Beyer@greatheartsirving.org.
If you would like to schedule a conference with one of your child’s Specials teachers (Art, Latin, Music, P.E., or Chess), please reach out to them directly to make an appointment:
