A Message From the Principal

  • December 2021

    Dear Windom Families:

     As the year marches forward we are looking ahead to progress reports and parent-teacher conferences!  Conferences this year are scheduled for Friday, December 3rd and Monday, December 6th
    • Both days are 11:30 am early dismissal for students with conferences in the afternoon.
    • Progress reports will be available via the Parent Portal on Friday, December 10th.
      • No hard copy of progress reports will be sent home this year.
      • If you need help accessing the Parent Portal click the “PS HELP” link on the Parent Portal login page.
    • Conferences are available in-person or virtual. Contact your child’s teacher for more information.

    Below you’ll find some tips for families to help make the most of your 10-15 minutes during parent-teacher conferences:

    • Talk with your child – ask them how things are going, review their agenda/take-home folders nightly, ask them what they are doing in class, etc.
    • Be on time for your conference! The schedules are kept tight as the staff has to meet with every family. If you forget when your time is, send in a note or email your teacher.
    • Follow the advice of the Boy Scouts: Be Prepared!  Write down any questions or concerns you have ahead of time to help guide conversations at the conference.
    • Ask how you can help out at home.

    Our goal is to have 100% attendance at conferences – every child has a family member with a teacher.  We are partners in your child’s education and together, WE make a difference.

    As a reminder, if you are interested in becoming a volunteer for PTO events, to chaperone a field trip, to be a guest reader, or for any event during the day whatsoever - completing the OPCSD Volunteer Training is required.  Follow the link below to access the training:
     
     
    Thank you for your continued support of Windom,
