PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES (PTC) APRIL 30

Spring Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC) are scheduled for Friday, April 30 from 9-5 PM.

At PTC, parents are invited to meet with their child’s teachers to discuss student progress and goals. The time is planned to be reflective and action-oriented. Conferences can be an important part in the education process, giving parents time to ask questions and to work together with teachers.

Upper elementary and secondary students are welcome to attend conferences. They may benefit from the opportunity to discuss their progress in an open forum with teachers and parents. Lower elementary parents are asked to attend without their children to allow for the most effective time with teachers.

Registration for PTC will be open from April 20-27, 8am-4pm. Parents need to log into PowerSchool to sign up for appointments. Instructions on how to register for PTC are HERE.

Thank you for your support as a parent/guardian. We look forward to meeting with you on conference day.

QUARTER 4 AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

After-School Activities for Quarter 4 are now updated and on the website here. NOTE: Parents, once you register for an activity for your child, you have the first week of the activity to decide whether or not you would like your child to continue in the activity. After the first week, our finance department will deduct the activity fee from your child's lunch account. If you choose to withdraw from an activity after the first week, we will not return the registration fee. Due to the limited spots for each after-school activity, please carefully consider these factors when you register or withdraw from a club.

Questions? Contact After-School Activities coordinator Susie Xiong (susie.xiong@wyischina.com).
