MENDOTA - Mendota High School has scheduled fall Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences for Oct. 24 and 25. The purpose of Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences is to improve the connection between home and school. Online information through Parent Connect is available for grades, attendance and discipline however, no electronic communication can replace the effectiveness of a face-to-face meeting.
The MHS staff looks forward to meeting with parents and students to discuss student performance. Parents may come to the gym foyer to pick up their student’s report card either Wednesday, Oct. 24 from 4-7 p.m. or Thursday, Oct. 25 from 4-7 p.m.
Faculty and administration will be available to discuss your student’s academic progress. MHS uses an open house format so families can stop by the high school anytime during those hours. Teachers will be seated with their co-teachers or alphabetically around the gym and cafeteria. Parents are encouraged to bring their student to the conferences.
Additional information will be available both evenings of conferences:
