Orientation conferences help families and staff work together to meet the needs of each child at the school. Student, parent/guardian, and teacher/Guide meet together and discuss the student's interests, needs, and initial learning and behavior goals. Staff will also make sure you sign up for ParentSquare and Montessori Compass so that you get all their messages about your child, your child's class, and school events. You will also be able to communicate with your child's teacher and the school office, sign up for events and class needs, fill out forms, respond to polls, and track your school service hours using these communication tools. Make sure to bring any forms you have completed to the office when you attend your conference.
