posted Oct 13, 2017, 9:20 AM by Heidi Critchley   [ updated Oct 13, 2017, 1:02 PM ]

On Monday, October 16th and Tuesday, October 17th, DGF Middle School will have parent teacher conferences.  

Monday, October 16th is an open house format from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m..  Sixth grade teachers will all be located in the media center.  Seventh and eighth grade teachers will be in their classrooms.  Parents are encouraged to circulate through each teacher as they are available.

Tuesday, October 17th is not an open house, but an invite only format.  Teachers have extended invitations to parents of students to meet with during this time.  Only parents with appointments will have the opportunity to visit with teachers on Tuesday.  If you did not receive an invite for Tuesday and you want to visit with your child's teacher,  you should attend on Monday.

As always, if  you would like to meet with teachers at an alternative time, please contact your child's advisor or myself to schedule a time.  

Also, just a reminder that there is no school on Wednesday, October 18th through Friday October 20th.  

Please call or email with any questions or concerns.  Thank you!

For DGF guardians to receive notifications from SchoolMessenger; two things have to happen.

  • Guardians need to ensure they have accurate contact information listed within ParenVUE.

  • Guardians need to ensure at least one phone number is selected as their primary number.  It’s a check box next to their phone number.    

If additional assistance is required, contact the appropriate school office.
