Parent conferences will be scheduled on Monday, Nov. 19th and Tuesday, Nov. 20th beginning at 12:45 p.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m. (The last conference will begin at 6:45 p.m.)

Synergy will be open to parents to schedule conferences beginning Nov. 7th at 1:00 p.m. and closing on Nov. 16th at 3:30. Please plan to use Synergy to schedule your conferences.  

* To ensure that there is sufficient time for all parents to meet with a teacher, parents are asked to schedule only one conference per student in Synergy.  Conferences are encouraged; however, they are optional if you do not have any questions/concerns for your child’s teacher.

 

  • Grades K-3 conferences will be with the homeroom teachers only. If a math teacher has a concern, and would like to meet with a parent inside or outside of the conference window, the teacher will contact the parent.

  • Grades 4, 5, & G/T conferences will be with morning ELA OR math teacher.  For example, if your child has ELA in the morning, you will schedule with the ELA teacher.  If your child has math in the morning, you will schedule with your child’s math teacher.If another content teacher has a concern and would like to meet with a parent inside or outside of the conference window, the teacher will contact the parent.

If you have a concern in a Related Arts area (media, technology, band, strings, music, art, and physical education), please email the teacher to set up a conference.  Teacher’s emails can be found on the TRES website.  

 

Important information if you have more than one child at TRES: When scheduling your conferences, it is recommended that you do not schedule back to back.  We highly recommend that you schedule with a 15 minute (one conference block) break to allow for your travel time.

 

If you are unable to use Synergy to schedule a conference, or if you need to schedule after Nov. 16th, call the TRES front office at 410-313-2560.  As a reminder, we cannot schedule a conference for the same day that you call. If you would like to set-up a conference, we highly encourage you to plan ahead and use Synergy.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Conference Time:

  • Be on time for your conference, as they are only 15 minutes.  Teachers will not be able to give you additional time past your scheduled 15 minutes.

  • Be prepared: Be familiar with your child’s quarter one report card grades and recent MAP testing.

  • Respectfully bring up any questions or concerns.

  • Do not schedule sibling conferences back to back.
