Fall Parent Conferences

Tue, 11/12/2019 - 3:00pm

Most parent conferences will be scheduled on Monday, Nov. 25th and Tuesday, Nov. 26th beginning at 1:00 p.m. and ending at 7:00 p.m. (The last conference will begin at 6:45 p.m.). For teachers who are unable to participate in evening parent conferences, hours will be available on Wednesday, Nov. 27th.

Synergy will be open to parents to schedule conferences beginning Nov. 11th at 9:15 a.m. and closing on Nov. 22nd at 3:30 p.m. 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 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/ELA teachers.
  • Grade 4 conferences will be with your child’s math teacher (including G/T math) for the first marking period.
  • Grade 5 conferences will be with your child’s homeroom/ELA teachers.

Please bring your child to the conference. This year the teachers at TRES are including the students in the discussion.

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, 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. 22nd, 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.

Please note, per teacher contract, parents are asked to adhere to the conference dates offered. Teachers should not be asked to schedule a conference during the week immediately before or after the designated conference window.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Conference Time:

  • Be on time for your conference, as they are only 15 minutes in length.  Teachers will not be able to give you additional time past your scheduled 15 minutes.
  • Be prepared: Be familiar with your child’s first quarter report card grades and recent MAP testing (1st-5th grade).
  • Respectfully bring up any questions or concerns.
  • Do not schedule sibling conferences back to back.
