This year, we are trying something new at MMS. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held 2:30-5:30 PM on February 3rd. In order to more efficiently schedule time to meet with parents, some teachers and grade-level teaching teams are using a website called Sign-Up Genius (www.signupgenius.com) to schedule meetings.
In the past, there has not been a particularly efficient way to schedule meetings to discuss student progress in a single night. We have all experienced long lines to speak to teachers. In our busy lives, our time is precious, so we are hopeful that with the help of Sign-Up Genius, we will be able to more effectively use our time.
Teachers have begun sending out notifications to parents via email with links to the sign-up form. If you have not received an email from your child’s teachers, please go to the directory on the MMS website (http://www.martinwildcats.com/about-us/directory) and send an email to any of the teachers with whom you would like to schedule an appointment. (Note: Some teachers will simply be available on 2/3 between 2:30-5:30 at MMS.)
Thank you for being flexible and for your continued support. We know that this is a new way of doing things and we appreciate your commitment to your children and to Martin Middle School.
