Parent Teacher Conferences 2020

Marist will hold virtual parent-teacher conferences on Thursday, November 5, 2020 from 1:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the Zoom platform by appointment

In advance of the conferences, please note that first quarter grade reports will be available on November 3 after 12:00 p.m. online. After logging into Skyward, your student’s grade report will be accessible as a PDF document within the ‘Portfolio’ tile. 

Appointments with faculty members must be made in advance using our online scheduling system, Pick-A-Time.  Families can sign-up for a 5-minute time slot with each teacher or counselor. Teachers will be taking staggered breaks and dinners, which affords us the opportunity for the session to be continuous, maximizing the availability of teachers throughout the afternoon and evening. 

Outlined below is important information relative to registering for appointments for conferences.

  • Registration opens at noon on Monday, October 19 and closes on Monday, October 26 at noonParents can register for and edit their appointments for teacher conferences during this time frame.  However, once registration closes on October 26, there will be no further opportunities for scheduling appointments with teachers. 
  • Parents need to login to Pick-A-Time using their existing username and password.  Parents new to Pick-A-Time should create a new user account.  All parents will need two pieces of information to connect to their student in Pick-A-Time.

  • A confirmation of your scheduled teacher conferences for each teacher will be sent via email. We highly advise you to save these emails as they will contain unique Zoom links for each teacher appointment. Reminder emails will be sent closer to the date of conferences.
  • All conferences must be pre-registered using the online system. Teachers’ schedules will NOT be able to accommodate unscheduled appointments.
