Bucyrus City Schools to host parent-teacher conferences
Posted on 10/17/2016

The Bucyrus City Schools will hold fall parent-teacher conferences Oct. 26 and 27. As a result, students in grades preschool through 12 will not be in session Oct. 27 or 28.

Conferences for students in grades six through 12 will be scheduled every 20 minutes and parents aren’t required to come, but their presence is highly encouraged. The Secondary School will follow the conference schedule below:

  • Wednesday, Oct. 26 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, Oct. 27 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

The Elementary School will follow the conference schedule below. Meetings will run every 15 to 20 minutes. Teachers will share the progress of the students, things they’ve been doing in the classroom as well as tips on how to support the student at home. Parents are encouraged to bring questions they may have regarding their child’s education.

  • Wednesday, Oct. 26 3:35 p.m. to 7:45 p.m.
  • Thursday, Oct. 27 8:05 a.m. to 7:45 p.m.

Elementary School parents wishing to participate are required to set up meeting times with teachers. A confirmation letter will be sent home with students. Those with questions should call the elementary school office at (419) 562-6089.

“Conferences are an opportunity for parents to communicate with their son or daughter’s teacher on how they are progressing in class,” Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said, “as well as what can be done at home to help their child be successful in school.”

Secondary School parents interested in scheduling a meeting can do so starting at 8 a.m. Oct. 19, by calling the high school office at (419) 562-7721 or the middle school office at (419) 562-0003.
