Dear Nagel Middle School Parent(s):

Our second round of conferences for this school year will be held the evening of Thursday, October 27th 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 17th through October 27th. 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 a Parent Lecture Series beginning on October 27th from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the Learning Commons. The first lecture in the series, “Meeting the Social and Emotional Needs of Middle School Students”, focuses on adolescence and how to help your child during challenging times. It is led by Susan Graham, Director of Education Liaisons at Child Focus, Inc. Babysitting will be provided for families with younger children.

Please follow the directions listed below to schedule your conference(s).
