It’s hard to believe, but we have begun the fourth week of school, and now that we are settled in to our many new routines, it is time to schedule our Parent/Teacher Conferences. As with many of our routines, our Conferences will have a new look this fall as we move them to a remote platform.
This morning we have opened the PTC Wizard portal to schedule our Fall Conferences. To reach the portal, go to MyPriory and navigate to the Parent-Teacher Conference Resource Board. Click the link there to open PTC Wizard. Once in the portal, you will be able to schedule a 5-minute meeting with each of your son’s teachers.
We have asked each faculty member to create a Zoom meeting that will be open from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. It will be important that you test your Zoom capability in advance of the conferences to ensure that it will work smoothly. A link to test your ability to use Zoom is also available on the Parent-Teacher Conference Resource Board in MyPriory.
On the day of the conference, you will be able to find each faculty member’s Zoom link on the MyPriory Resource Page under Parent/Teacher Conferences. Faculty will allow you to enter their Zoom meeting at the scheduled time from the Waiting Room. It will be very important for both you and the faculty to respect the time constraints of the conference.
If you would prefer to discuss your son’s progress at length via email or a phone call, please feel free to reach out to his instructors to arrange an appointment.
The PTC Wizard portal will be open from Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 a.m. to Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 3 p.m.
It’s been great to have everyone on campus and to engage with your sons in their learning. They have shown great resilience as we have adapted to the many new learning tools. And, I am also incredibly grateful to our faculty and staff as they have mastered new technologies, adjusted to new learning environments, and maintained high levels of instructional evidence. I hope that you enjoy spending some time with them in discussion about your son’s progress.
All my best,
Assistant Head of School for Intellectual Formation
