Dear Parents,

On February 1, from 4:30-7:30 p.m., East Allen University will be conducting our second Parent Teacher Conference Night of the school year. In the past, parent and student attendance has been tremendous. In fact, this night has been so well attended, that our parents have had difficulty meeting with each of their student’s teachers. In an effort to improve our service to our parents, we have developed a plan that we believe will reduce the amount of time parents have to wait to speak to a teacher. We hope this plan will ensure that every parent can meet with their student’s teachers.  

The first phase of our plan is to attempt to have parent arrival staggered. Our hope is that this will keep lines from building up as parents wait to speak with the teachers. Thus, we are recommending (if possible) that you arrive at the suggested times bulleted below. If these suggested times do not work with your schedule, you are welcome to attend anytime between 4:30-7:30 p.m.

  • Last Name Starting with A-G suggested time is from 4:30-5:30 PM
  • Last Name Starting with H-N suggested time is from 5:30-6:30 PM
  • Last Name Starting with O-Z suggested time is from 6:30-7:30 PM

The second phase of our plan involves the location of our conferences with parents.  We are going to hold the conferences in the cafeteria. This idea came from our parent council group and we received rave reviews from the parents that attended in the past.  We are also asking that all individual conferences be kept to 10 MINUTES or less.  We understand that these conferences may be short, but our teachers will be prepared with the bulleted items below to ensure a productive conference occurs.

  • Grade related information like homework, quizzes, and test scores (parents already have access).
  • Teacher contact information (written handouts)
  • Teachers may extend the conference if other parents are not waiting

Lastly, one of our goals at EAU is to provide students and parents with GREAT customer service. We are hopeful that these changes will help us meet this goal. We are looking forward to meeting with you on Wednesday, February 1. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us using the information below.

Sincerely,

Doug Hicks
