Parent/Teacher Conference Sign-ups

Dear Parent or Guardian:

From January 25th through the 27th the middle school will be holding parent/teacher conferences.  These conferences are available to all parents/guardians and allow an opportunity to receive a brief overview of your child’s progress.  All parents that wish to have a conference will be accommodated, even if it is outside this specific conference window, as there are limited slots available.   We ask you to consider booking a conference if there is a general academic concern or issue that would be best addressed in a face to face meeting.  If you are generally pleased with your child’s academic standing and/or might only have a specific question for one or two teachers, please consider emailing the specific teacher(s).  We are happy to respond via email whenever needed. Remember, the conference bookings are on a first come, first serve basis and are 10 minutes long.  Thankfully, we are able to make the scheduling of conferences on-line again this year; we hope that this streamlines the process and makes things more efficient for teachers and parents.

The scheduling window is now open, to book your conference simply follow the link below:

https://trmsconferences.youcanbook.me/

Once you have clicked on your child’s team, you will be able to book your time slot automatically.   

If you have any questions regarding the process, please feel free to email me at alan.macrae@tritonschools.org or call (978) 463-5845.

Regards,

Al

Quebec Trip Payment

Guardians :

As of this week, we have 113 students who have returned forms to us indicating they would like to attend the year-end trip to Quebec.   Last evening we had an informational evening, at which we only had approximately 35 parents attend.   At that meeting we gave out more specific information on logistics and cost, as well as financial forms which need to be used to make the initial deposit of $200 for the trip .  This deposit is due on February 1.    Although we have 113 students that have shown interest, the deposits will dictate the actual number of students committed to the trip and therefore make the trip a reality.

If you intend on having your child go on the trip, please have your son or daughter pick up the registration forms in the middle school main office, or go to the middle school website and download the forms under the Quebec tab.  These need to be returned to Ms. Small in the office on or before February 1st, 2017 with the deposit. This is a firm date.   Please DO NOT use the online registration system for payment and/or student registration, we would like to handle all registered participants internally.  If you have indicated you would have your child attend, but now wish for them not to go, please email Kathleen Small at kathleen.small@tritonschools.org and let her know.

Anyone who has a financial or other constraints, please let us know via email; It is important that every student that wishes to attend is able!

After the deposits are collected there will be another payment of $200 due on March 1st with the balance being due on April 1st.  We estimate the total(with 113 students) to be @$519 per child.  This could change due to the number students and fundraising efforts.   After we have a committed list of attendees, there will be a mandatory meeting for students and parents. That date is to be determined.

We are excited to be able to offer this trip; your cooperation making a commitment by bringing in your deposit and meeting the deadlines is appreciated and necessary as it will help us streamline our planning.

Regards,

Alan MacRae                                                                   Rob Asselin
