Spring Conferences

Dear O.H. Anderson Families:

Please join us for our upcoming parent-teacher conferences.

  •      Wednesday March 28  from 4:00 - 8:00 pm
  •      Thursday March 29  from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
  •      Thursday, April 5  from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

O.H. Anderson is again offering online scheduling for parent-teacher conferences through PTC Wizard.  Online scheduling will reduce the amount of paper shuffling between home and school and will provide families the opportunity to schedule their conferences in "real time." 

When scheduling your conferences for your student, please note the following:

  •       Conference sessions are in 5 minute increments.
  •       For 3rd grade conferences, parents can schedule 3 (5 minute) conference sessions with the homeroom teacher and 1 (5 minute) conference session with the math teacher, if it is not the same homeroom  teacher.
  •       For example, if the homeroom teacher is the same teacher for math, you would schedule 4- (5 min.) sessions each for a total of 20 min. with that teacher.
  •       If your child has a different math teacher you would schedule 3-(5 minute) conference sessions with the homeroom teacher and 1 (5 minute) conference session with the math teacher. You would then have 15 minutes total with the homeroom teacher, and 5 minutes with the math teacher.
  •      For 4th grade conferences, parents can schedule 1 (5 minute)conference session with the homeroom teacher, 1(5 minute) session with the math teacher, 1 (5 minute)session with the literacy/writing teacher, and 1(5 minute) session with the social studies/science teacher.
  •       For example, if the homeroom teacher is the same teacher for math, you would schedule 5 min. each for a total of 10 min. with that teacher.
  •       If your child has Ms. Swisher you can choose 4 (5 minute) time slots unless your child has a different math teacher. Then you would choose 3 (5 minute) sessions with Ms. Swisher and 1 (5 minute) session with the math teacher.
  •       For 5th grade conferences, parents can schedule  1 (5 minute) conference session with the homeroom teacher, 1(5 minute) session with the math teacher, 1 (5 minute)session with the literacy/writing teacher and 1 (5 minute)session  with the science/social studies teacher.
  •       Parents are encouraged to build in “transition” time from classroom to classroom, rather than scheduling the sessions always back-to-back.
  •       Parents can also schedule conferences with the specialists (Art, Music, Spanish, Media, Phy Ed, Math, Reading, and Student Services).
  •       If you are a two household family, please coordinate the conferences.
  •       If your schedule allows for flexibility, Friday conferences generally have more openings.
