October, 2014

Dear Nagel Middle School Parent(s):

The second of four scheduled parent conferences for this school year will be held the evening of Thursday, October 30, 2014 from 4:30 – 8:00 pm. To streamline the scheduling of conferences, Nagel uses an online program. Available conference slots will fill up on a first come, first served basis, so the sooner you can schedule your conference the better. The window to schedule appointments will be open from October 17, 2014 – October 30, 2014. Due to limited availability, please schedule a maximum of two conferences with core team teachers. You may also schedule conferences with encore teachers. Please keep in mind that if you feel a conference is not necessary at this time, Nagel does not require you to attend each parent/teacher conference. Students are invited to participate in conferences with parents. If students do attend, they must remain with parents at all times.

At the October 30th conferences, there will be a feature speaker from 6:00 – 7:00 pm in the cafetorium for all Nagel families to attend. Steve Smith works for Cincinnati Bell and has an extremely resourceful and informational presentation on how to stay responsible and safe in a 24/7 connected living world. Parents are more than welcome to attend this presentation if you have a scheduled conference or not.
