Dear Nagel Middle School Parent(s):

Our second round of conferences for this school year will be held the evening of Thursday, November 17th 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 November 10th through November 17th. 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, or, you have already attended a parent/teacher conference, Nagel does not require you to attend all of the offered conference nights. Students are invited to participate in conferences with parents. If students do attend, they must remain with parents at all times.

The Nagel Counselors are excited to offer the second session in the parent lecture series. There will be a speaker from Child Focus, Inc. joining us to discuss how lifestyle choices can affect your child. Do you wonder if your child gets enough sleep? Or, if the food they choose to eat has an impact on their learning? Join us for our next session on November 17th at 5:00 p.m. in the Learning Commons. Are you wondering if your child is showing symptoms of ADHD? Are you looking for strategies in working with your student that has been diagnosed with ADHD? If so, immediately following the lecture series, Jen Damaska will be available to discuss ADHD and strategies to help your child. Babysitting will be provided for families with younger children.
