Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences

The 2014 SVMS Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences are scheduled to occur on Oct. 29/30 and Nov. 3/4, 2014. These conferences are designed for the student as well as the parent and are intended to provide time to discuss the student’s academic progress, particularly if the student is struggling or has unsatisfactory grades. It is very important your student attend the conference with you.

Depending upon your child’s progress report, you may not feel the need to meet with any teachers, or you may want to meet with one or more different teachers. Please understand that the teachers’ first priority will be to conference with the parents and students whose grades are below a “C” level. If your child is achieving satisfactory grades, the teacher may ask you to conference with him/her at a later time.

IPSF

Give Your Child a World-Class Education – Give to IPSF

Help preserve the programs that make Irvine schools great by making a contribution to IPSF’s Annual Campaign.  Did you know that the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) is among the fastest growing in the nation, but is also one of the lowest funded? Many of the programs that make IUSD distinctive and help our schools maintain their top rankings are supported by community donations to IPSF.  Our goal is to raise enough funds in community contributions by December 31 to receive the full benefit of $1.3 million in matching funds available through a challenge grant from the City of Irvine.

Your donation to IPSF will make a difference where it is needed most—in the classroom.  With your help, elementary students will have small group instruction in critical areas like reading.   With your donation, middle and high school students will have reduced class sizes.  And your gift will be matched by the City of Irvine, dollar for dollar.  Please go to www.ipsf.net to make your tax deductible donation today.
