Fall Goal Setting Conference: Schedule Your Conference Here!

Our teachers are excited to meet with you for our annual Fall Goal Setting Conferences. We know that with Distance Learning, many of you have already had meetings or connections with your child’s teacher. We wanted to share with you some information regarding the upcoming goal setting conferences:

Kindergarten - 5th Grade Conferences: Our elementary goal setting conferences are scheduled in 20 minute increments. 10-15 minutes for the actual conferences with a 5-minute buffer for transitioning in and out of conferences as well as planning for potential technical hiccups.

6th Grade-8th Grade Conferences: Our middle school goal setting conferences are scheduled in 40 minute increments. 20-25 minutes for the actual conferences with some time set aside as a buffer for transitioning in and out of conferences as well as planning for potential technical hiccups.

How to Schedule Your Child’s Conference: We are excited to be using a new platform for scheduling conferences at Barton this school year. The tool we will be using is called “MyConferenceTime.” To schedule your child’s conference, please use this link:

Be sure to check out this video on how to use this tool to schedule for your child or children’s goal setting conference:
