Parent Conferences & Zoom Links

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences start tonight! The virtual appointments are made on Skyward, and the links to Zoom calls can be found here. Tonight’s conferences will run from 4:00 – 7:30 pm. You can schedule appointments by visiting Skyward as a parent and choosing the ‘Conferences’ option from the menu on the left. Click ‘View Scheduled Times’ for the child you want to schedule, and a list of times will be listed that a teacher has available.

In-person conferences will be on Thursday from 4:00 – 7:30 pm in our gym. There will be no appointments for those conferences.

Above all, remember that you can access a teacher by phone, email or appointment all year long. If you don’t get to talk to a teacher tonight or on Thursday, just reach out and we’ll set up a time that works for you. Thank you for all you do to support our students, and we hope to see you at conferences this week!

There will be no school on Friday, February 16th as a compensatory day for teachers due to the late nights of parent conferences. There will also be no school on Monday, February 19th (Presidents Day).

Panorama Survey This Week

Dear SoJo Middle School Families,

Students will be taking our district’s Panorama SEL (Social Emotional Learning) Survey this week. This is the same surrey given in the fall, winter and spring each year. This survey gives us insight into how students feel about school and helps us drive change for our school culture. This survey will be given to students during class and should only take about 15-20 minutes. Students will be asked how they think and feel about school.  Here is a link to some of the questions that your student may be asked 

This data will be used alongside academic, behavioral, and attendance records in order to support the whole child. By using Panorama our school will be able to act on data and plan solutions at the school, classroom, and student level. This survey:

  • Is not a curriculum
  • Is not a mental health screener
  • Has nothing to do with 2nd Step
  • Has nothing to do with Critical Race Theory (CRT)

Thank you so much for your support at home. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact your student’s school counselor.
