Trinity’s first parent-teacher-student conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 9, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. and 5:30-7:30 p.m. Students will have an early dismissal on this day at 2 p.m. In an effort to maximize your conference visit, we would appreciate your contacting teachers in advance as to which conference session you will be attending. By doing so, we can better prepare for conferences and the time we spend with you. Given the large number of parents who attend conferences, it is not possible to schedule a specific conference time, but it is helpful to teachers if you email or call them to indicate if you plan to attend the afternoon or evening conference session. Trinity parent-teacher-student conferences are an important part of the Trinity educational experience. This time allows us to better get to know you and to work collaboratively for academic success. Letting us know your conference session will make for better advance preparation for your visit. It is especially helpful to see the parents of students who are struggling. Some parents come to see only two or three teachers; others want to see them all. Any and all visits are welcome. Please utilize teachers’ individual email accounts or phone numbers to give them advance notice of your intention. Both are located on our website: http://www.trinityrocks.com/admissions/academics/faculty/ Of course, our doors are open that evening, even if we don’t hear from you beforehand. Thanks and we hope to see you Oct. 9.

Spaces are limited and there are only six available ones left, so if you are interested, please see Mr. Budniak in room F136 ASAP!
