Parent / Teacher Conferences

Dear Parents:

Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, March 17th, from 12:30 to 3 PM and 5 to 8 PM You may sign up for one session with each teacher, and each session is 5 minutes.

1. CONFERENCE ONLINE SIGN UP You may sign up for conferences in advance by using the online sign-up program and/or in person on the day of the conferences.

Online sign-up will start at 10 AM on Friday, March 11th.

In order to reserve times online, you will need to know your child’s official class number and his/her teachers’ names. You may reserve times for a maximum of 2 teachers PER STUDENT up until Tuesday, March 15th at 5 PM. Reservations for additional sessions will be available after that (pending availability) and at school at the time of the conferences (if there are times remaining). The booking window will close for everyone on Wednesday, March 16th at 5 PM.

In order to reserve your conference sessions online, go to and enter event code ukc33 

**If you do not have computer access, you may use a computer at school to reserve sessions online, or you may get in touch with Anne Pejovich and she can assist you in reserving sessions. She can be reached at 347-563- 5156.

2. WALK-IN CONFERENCES: Conferences from 5-5:30 PM will be available on a first-come, first served basis. If you are signing up at school, we suggest that as soon as you arrive, you first sign up for a conference with each of the teachers with whom you would like to speak and then begin your conferences. If you don't, it is likely that all the spots will be filled. Prioritize. Leave yourself 5 or 10 minutes between each conference, in case the teachers are running a few minutes late.

There are some teachers, such as those teaching science, music, art and foreign language, who do not have enough conference slots to meet with every parent. If you are not able to meet with a teacher on the 17th, we will help you find an alternative time. If you need an extended conference with a teacher, please contact the teacher via email to schedule a time to meet.

NOTE TO ALL PARENTS: You may reserve times for a maximum of 2 teachers PER STUDENT (NOT per family) up until Tuesday, March 15th, and a maximum of 4 teachers PER STUDENT after that. IF YOU SIGN UP ONLINE FOR MORE TEACHERS, WE WILL CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENTS WITH THEM.

NOTE TO SIXTH GRADE PARENTS: Given the limited number of time slots that the music and language teachers have for conferences, there will be no conference appointments with the teachers of either music or foreign language for parents of sixth graders. IF YOU SIGN UP ONLINE FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE OR MUSIC TEACHERS, WE WILL CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH THEM. We need to keep time slots available for the parents of 7th and 8th grade students, who have the subject for the full year. If you feel that you need to speak with these teachers, please email the teacher directly to make an appointment for an alternative time.
