Dear Bayside Parents,

Progress Reports and Student-Involved Conferences
Progress Reports – Progress reports will be available this Friday, April 12 after 1:15 pm on the Gecko portal. Students will not receive a paper copy but they will have access to the reports on Friday during advisory time. You can access the progress report by logging into the Gecko portal or, if you would like a printed copy, you can ask your child to print the report during their advisory time. **Please bring an electronic or paper copy of your child’s Progress Report the the Student-Involved Conferences.

Student-Involved Conferences on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday April 15-17 – Student-Involved Conferences will be held on April 15 (3:45-5:45 pm), April 16 all day (no classes for students), and April 17 (3:45-5:45 pm). These conferences are an opportunity for parents, together with their child, to meet with teachers. It is important that your child attend the conference with you. We ask parents to sign up for one 2-hour time block for each of your children to meet with all of their child’s teachers. (If you have more than one child you must sign up for more than one time block.) All of the teachers will be stationed on the first and second floors at Bayside. Parents will be free to move around and meet with teachers for up to 10 minutes. If you need to meet longer, you can schedule a time to come in another day and continue your conversation. We require parents to sign up ahead of time for these conferences. Parent numbers are limited in each session. We will honour the time of those who signed up so no “drop ins” are allowed.
