T1 Parent-Teacher Conferences
On Thursday, November 21 from 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm we will have our first Parent-Teacher conferences of the school year. At this conference, parents will receive scholar's T1 report card and have the opportunity to speak to teachers 1:1 about your scholar's progress and ways to support your scholar for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
Parent-Teacher conferences are a wonderful opportunity for parents and guardians to visit campus and get a strong understanding of their scholar's daily work. Our goal is to have 75% of families pick up their report cards and visit teachers on Thursday, November 21. As we continue to grow more connected as a school community, we want to have more families on campus for critical moments in the academic year!
Parent involvement in a scholar's education is a critical part of children's academic success and we want to provide all families at DPAC the opportunity to come to take part in their child's education by volunteering at school.
We realize each of our families is unique, with its own talents and time constraints and would like to provide as many different volunteer opportunities as possible.
If you would like to volunteer on campus, please complete THIS FORM
and we will contact you to set up your volunteering opportunity.
