Conference Days
Student progress is monitored and reported throughout the school year, and parents are encouraged to contact their child’s teachers whenever questions or concerns arise. Team conferences are another means to review and discuss your child’s progress. (Please know it is too early to determine math placement for grade 7, and you may email your child’s teacher with questions as needed.)
The following times have been designated for Parent Teacher Conferences for the spring:

• Thursday, April 23 -- 12:15 to 5:00 pm*
• Thursday, April 23 – 6:00 to 8:00 pm
•  Friday, April 24 – 12:15 to 3:00 pm*

*Please note that students will be dismissed at 11:15 a.m. on half days for conferences.

Not every student requires a spring conference, and it may not be possible for all parents to meet with teachers on these days. Therefore, we handle the scheduling of conferences in the following way:

We begin scheduling conferences by teachers' requests first. If the grade level team feels it is important to discuss your child's progress at this time, staff will contact you directly to set up a time. If you would like a meeting, and have not been contacted, you may call after April 15 to request a conference.

We will accommodate as many parents as possible on the designated days. However, if the appointments have all been filled, the team will offer you an alternate date for a conference. Phone conferences may also be arranged.

Team Contacts:
6th Grade – Ms. Leighton Cleighton@briarcliffschools.org
7th Grade – Ms. Scerra Jscerra@briarcliffschools.org
8th Grade – Ms. Ryzhik Sryzhik@briarcliffschools.org

STEM in Action
Students may recognize Brian Conybeare as the three time Emmy Award winning reporter and anchor at News 12 Westchester. But next week, they will hear Mr. Conybeare speak about the design and construction of the new Tappan Zee Bridge and his role as the Special Advisor to the Governor for the project. Mr. Conybeare will visit on March 27 for a special school wide assembly.
