Spring Conferences - Elementary Level

February 22, 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The goal of the Elizabethtown Area School District is for every student to graduate ready to live, learn, and thrive in a global community. To help us accomplish this mission, we are firm believers that a strong partnership between our parents/guardians and faculty must exist. As such, the District is offering parents of elementary students (Grades K-6) the opportunity for a spring check-up conference. Conferences are being scheduled for March 7th and 8th for parents interested in meeting with their child’s teacher. If there is a specific concern, teachers will be contacting you to schedule a conference. We encourage you to attend the conference so we can work together to help your child achieve academic success. For parents who are not contacted about a conference but are interested in meeting, please schedule a conference using the Online Scheduler program, described in detail by clicking the link below.

Unlike fall conferences, the spring check-up conferences will spend less time reviewing your child’s full progress report and more time discussing the overall academic health of your child. Because we strive to have each of our students demonstrate proficiency in all grade level skills identified on the progress report, the spring check-up conferences will place an emphasis on talking about areas for growth. This two-way conversation will include ways in which our school and your family can partner to help assure your son/daughter finishes the school year strongly and that he/she masters the required grade level skills.

As we all know, it takes a collaborative approach with school and home working together to ensure the greatest success for your child. We are confident that the spring check-up conferences will provide the perfect blend of information on your child’s strengths and areas of emerging skills. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Elizabethtown Area School District, we are looking forward to working with you as the school year draws to a close. For additional information on spring check-up conferences, contact your child’s teacher directly.


Respectfully,

The EASD Elementary School Principals
