March Letter from the Principal

March 1, 2018

Hello, Great Falls Parents!

It is just about time for Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences! The general purpose of conferences is to connect in a one-on-one setting with your child’s teacher, as well as receive an update on academic progress and “skills for life.” These progress checks include student sharing of their work products, as well as the presentation of other assessments and work by the student or teacher. As your child will be present, it is understood that issues which are private and confidential require a different forum for communication. It is expected that issues that are of a serious concern would have been discussed prior to and outside of these conferences.

Conferences are held on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 14th and the full day on Friday, March 16th. Technically, however, there is a 2-week window during which your particular conference may be scheduled. The available dates and times during this window of time vary depending on the teacher. You will be able to register for your child’s conference beginning on Monday, March 5th at

Great Falls takes pride in having a very high participation rate in Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences. As always, please feel free to reach out to me at any time with questions and feedback. I am available through email at and by phone at 222-1050. We look forward very much to seeing you around school when you come in for your child’s conference!
