Hello Maquoketa Families-- Just wanted to send out a quick reminder that Parent Teacher Conferences are next Wednesday, March 6th from 2:00-6:00 and Thursday, March 7th from 2:00-8:00. This is an important time for you to connect with your child(ren)’s teacher and discuss how their learning has progressed this school year. To sign up for conferences this year, remember to use our scheduling tool, Meet the Teacher- https://maquoketaschools.meettheteacher.com/. You will need your students’ name(s) and birth dates. Here is a short guide to help you book in Meet the Teacher. Reminders- 1) HS and MS- HS and MS will be hosting in-person conferences on Wednesday, March 6th and virtual conferences on Thursday, March 7th. This is to ensure a smooth transition throughout the night. MS and HS will have 10 minute conference slots. On Meet the Teacher, you will be given the option for each on both days. Be sure to check the correct button (In Person on Wednesday or Video Call on Thursday) according to the day that you picked. Again this is to ensure a smooth transition through the night so our teachers have the opportunity to meet with all parents who have signed up on a timely basis. 2) Cardinal and Briggs- Conferences will run for 20 minutes. In person conferences are encouraged so please select the "In-Person" option under Meet the Teacher. Cardinal families are encouraged to bring their students to their conferences and Briggs families are invited to student-led conferences in all classrooms this spring. If you have any questions or challenges in scheduling your conferences, please contact the office at your child’s building, and they will be happy to add appointments on your behalf. We look forward to meeting with you to talk about your child’s learning experience. Yours sincerely, Maquoketa Administrative Team
