Dear Families,

       It’s that time of year! Parent-teacher conferences are coming up, on Thursday, October
28 from 5:30-8 pm and Friday, October 29rd, from 12:30-2:30 pm. We invite you to attend and
get a chance to speak with your child’s teachers about their progress this semester.

        Please keep in mind that the purpose of these meetings is to provide you with an
opportunity to touch base with your child’s teachers and you are encouraged to bring your
child, or children along with you.
        Parent-teacher conferences are limited to two minutes per teacher, as we have many
families who come to meet their teachers in a short amount of time. Therefore, if you have a
larger discussion that you feel is important to have with a specific teacher, we ask that you
make an appointment to talk over the phone at a later date. In addition, you should have
received a call from your child’s advisor if they were at risk academically in their classes.
        Because parent-teacher conferences are a busy time, we are aware that many of you
have to wait to see your child’s teachers. Our guidance counselor, Stephanie Smith, will be in
attendance to meet with you about your child as well. Additionally, Bonnie Phillips and Tina
Simotas from the college office can meet with you regarding questions you have about the
college process.
        Please make sure you ask your child for the names of their teachers, as there is more than
one subject teacher per grade.
        Remember, the conferences are scheduled on a first come basis, and families will sign in
with individual teachers. Please sign your name in the lobby, and then you can sign in for
individual teachers, beginning at 5:30.
        We look forward to seeing you at parent-teacher conferences! If you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact Janice Salmeri, our parent coordinator at 212-683-
7440, extension 1063, or for questions in Chinese, call Carol Kei Jiang at extension 1061.


                                                           Sincerely,


                                                           Gisele Nassif
