Dear KAIS Parents,
Spring is upon us. Birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and the weather is cooperating (for the most part). At KAIS, spring also provides us with the opportunity to hold a check-in between home and school before entering the final quarter of the school year. We call these check-ins Student-Led Parent-Teacher Conferences (SLPTC). These brief conferences will give you an overview of the academic courses your child is engaged in and how he or she is performing in these classes. As the name of these meetings suggests, your child will be responsible for conducting the conferences, but parents will also have an opportunity to speak directly with teachers if any questions or concerns arise.
All meetings will be held digitally, and we will send more information about how to sign up later this week. These conferences are optional for returning students. However, they are mandatory for 9th-grade students, new students, and students who are underperforming. If you fall under one of these categories, you will be contacted on Thursday to set up an appointment. We will then provide links in the KAIS News on Friday for any other parents who would like to set up a conference. At that point, sign-ups will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
9th and 10th-grade students are encouraged to sign up for conferences on Thursday, April 15th.
11th and 12-grade students are encouraged to sign up for conferences on Friday, April 16th.
SLPTCs are 15-minute meetings. If a meeting needs to go beyond 15-minutes per class, the parents and teacher will arrange to schedule a follow-up meeting. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this guideline.
We look forward to meeting with you and discussing your child’s progress. With only a few months left in the school year, it is important that students, teachers, and parents work together to ensure a strong finish. We thank you for your support at home!
All the best,
