Parent-Teacher Conferences

Plan and register next Monday

Dear Parents,

In one week, ISQ will be hosting Parent-Teacher Conferences. Parent-Teacher Conferences are held to help parents and teachers come together to discuss the progress of each student.

Some examples of items you can discuss with your child(ren)’s teacher(s) could include:
• Skills teachers have observed your child demonstrate or improve
• Character qualities teachers have observed your child display or in which they have demonstrated growth
• Universities or career paths in which students have shown interest

Please take note of important highlights below:

  1. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be hosted on October 24 and October 25
    a. On both days, school will be half days with students departing at 11:30 AM
    b. Parent-Teacher conferences will go from 12:30 PM to 5:00 PM on both days
  2. To sign up and meet with your child(ren)’s teacher(s) and for translation assistance, you will need to create an account and register using our online system.
  3. If your child(ren) receives ELS services, please be sure to sign up for a separate meeting time with your child(ren)’s ELS teacher. (The names of those teachers can be found on PowerSchool).
  4. If you have questions or concerns about other classes (music, art, PE, Chinese), please also sign up for other meetings with those teachers.
  5. The registration period will begin Monday, October 21 at 8:30 AM and close on Wednesday, October 23 at 3:30 PM. When booking, please make sure your account and computer are set to Beijing/Shanghai time GMT +8.
  6. Unfortunately, childcare will not be provided and our playground, court, and soccer field will be closed during the conferences.
