You are cordially invited to attend the first of two Renton High School Parent-Teacher Conferences scheduled for Thursday, October 17th, from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm. The conferences will be held in the Renton High School Main Gym. Signs will advise you of the location.
A parent-teacher conference is a brief meeting designed to discuss your student's progress at school and find solutions to academic or behavioral problems if those are present. These conferences supplement the information conveyed by the mid-term grades. Most importantly, it cements the partnership needed by families and the school to guide students to graduation promptly. While conferences can take place without the presence of the students whose progress is being discussed, I will strongly suggest that they be present as their inclusion increases the productivity of the meetings. Please bring them along if you are able. You may confer with any or all your student’s teachers on a “first come, first served” basis. Please limit meetings to five to seven minutes per teacher to accommodate as many families as possible.
We will have a copy of your student’s Progress Report (Mid-Term 1st trimester) when you check-in at the Main Gym’s entrance. You must check-in before visiting with the teachers.
If you (or someone you know) require an interpreter for conferencing and are unable to bring someone to assist with the language, please be aware that we have contracted Spanish, Somali, and Vietnamese interpreters to be present. Finally, if you are unable to attend, do not hesitate to email or call teachers and counselors if you have any questions after you review your student’s mid-term grades.
Please plan to join us at our Parent Conference Night on Thursday, October 17th. As always, your attendance, support, and cooperation are very much appreciated!
