Getting Ready for Parent-Teacher Conferences October 24 & 25

posted Oct 21, 2013, 12:49 PM by Tracy Karas

Citywide Parent Teacher Conferences are held twice a year (fall and spring) and provide a great opportunity for you to talk with your child's teacher about what your child is learning at school and how you can support this learning at home.  Take time to review questions to consider asking your child's teacher from the Department of Education.



The hours for Parent-Teacher Conferences at Marta Valle High School are as follows:
Thursday, 5:30-8:00 PM (Parents are invited for a workshop in the library at 5:00 p.m.)
Friday, 1:00-3:00 PM

All parents and guardians are invited to attend with their child.  It is always a good idea to have the student as part of the conversation, especially when making plans for improvements.  We hope to see you this week.  Please call 212-473-8152 if you have questions or email info@martavalle.org
