Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Academic Event | Middle Division three-way conferences

Middle Division virtual three-way conferences for Year 6 and 7 students will be held on Thursday, November 19 from 1:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Friday November 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Conferences will be five or ten minutes in duration. Parents will have an opportunity to speak with teachers. To encourage ownership over their learning and to develop self-advocacy skills, students are expected to be present for their conferences to participate in the dialogue. 

It is important that you access the Google Meet link at the time of your scheduled appointment and not before. Please use your email address and not your student’s UCC email. You will be placed in a ‘waiting room’ until the meeting begins and the faculty member will let you in to begin the virtual meeting. At the start of the meeting, please allow your child to introduce you to their teacher. Keep conversation to the scheduled five or ten minutes so that our faculty can meet with all families.

You can begin scheduling your appointments when the pickAtime system is open as follows:

pickAtime opens: Friday, November 6 at 9:00 a.m.
pickAtime closes: Monday, November 16 at 4:00 p.m.

Please use these instructions to sign up for your virtual conferences. Google meet links will be sent out Tuesday, November 17 by email.

If you would like to meet with Barb Kawasoe, our Middle Division Coordinator for the Centre for Learning, please email her directly at bkawasoe@ucc.on.ca.

Thank you for your understanding and partnership.

Warm regards,

Gareth Evans
Head Middle Division
