NEW Parent/Teacher Interview Booking

Mother Teresa Parent/Teacher Interviews

Thursday November 28th, 2019

New ONLINE Booking Procedure for Interviews

Your child’s School Progress Report Card (Gr. 1-6) will be sent home on Monday November 25th, 2019.

Mother Teresa Catholic School will be hosting Parent/Teacher Interviews on Thursday, November 28th from 2:30pm to 8:00pm. We will be piloting a new online booking system this year through Microsoft Bookings.   Many of our teachers will conduct interviews together as they teach the same students throughout the day. For teachers who have more than one teaching partner, parents are invited to book 1 time slot only with your child’s English teacher. French teachers have their own booking links if you wish to meet with them as well. If you are unable to book a time during the parent/teacher interview night, a phone call or alternate time can be arranged directly with the teacher.  The time slots are available on a first come, first served basis so we suggest you book early to ensure a spot. As well, if you have more than one child in our school, the earlier you book your time, the more likely you can book appointments close together.

ALL INTERVIEWS ARE 10 MINUTES IN LENGTH. Please arrive early for your scheduled time to ensure your interview is not cut short. We appreciate your assistance in keeping to our schedule. If you are booking interviews with multiple teachers, please leave 10 minutes between to allow for you to travel to the next classroom.

Catholic School Council Meeting

Wednesday October 2 is our first Catholic School Council Meeting at 6:30 in the library.  Membership on the council is open to any parent of a child registered at Mother Teresa.  Any parent of a child registered may attend the meeting.


EQAO Results

This month, parents and guardians will receive their child’s Individual Student Report (ISR). This report contains their child’s results from the Assessments of Reading, Writing and Mathematics, Primary and Junior Divisions, administered in spring 2019. These results did not impact students’ report cards last year.

EQAO results offer an independent snapshot that shows whether students are meeting literacy and math expectations from The Ontario Curriculum. In receiving the ISR, there is an opportunity for parents and guardians to have discussions about their child’s achievement within their family or with a teacher (e.g., parent/guardian-teacher interview).

EQAO data should be considered alongside other information—such as in-class assessment results, report-card grades and teacher observations—so parents and guardians can build a fuller understanding of their child’s learning.

Parents and guardians can learn more about assessment results through EQAO’s website (www.eqao.com) or by clicking the following links:


Student Agendas

Our supplier has had difficulty fulfilling our order, along with other schools.  The school board has secured a new supplier for our agendas and we were told we could expect them to arrive in the next two to three weeks.  Thank you for your patience.


PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF

FRIENDLY REMINDERS ABOUT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF

If you are dropping off or picking up your child at the parking lot at the end of First Street, PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY!! The parking lot is a municipal lot and the bike path goes right through it. The weather has turned nicer and there are more children on bicycles. We know how busy the morning can be and that parents need to get to work, but PLEASE SLOW DOWN to avoid a tragedy occurring.

As well, please remember that vehicles are NOT permitted in the bus loop at the beginning of the day from 7:40 to 8:05am, and again from 2:00-2:40pm. We have had issues with vehicles trying to pass buses in the loop which is prohibited. Feel free to park at the lot between the school and the public library.

THANK YOU FOR KEEPING OUR CHILDREN SAFE!
