Parent Teacher Conferences


Conferences will be held on Tuesday, November 15th and Wednesday, November 16th.  Both days are from 12:30pm – 4:30pm and 5:00pm - 7:00pm.  All teachers will take a dinner break from 4:30pm-5:00pm.

Pick-up report card from the Business Office first.  Then precede to the teachers rooms that you would like to conference with.  Conference time is held to approximately 5 minutes.  If you feel you have more to talk about please make a future appointment with a specific teacher so you can have more time.

While parents are encouraged to attend conferences, long lines to see various teachers have been a source of frustration for staff and parents alike in past years.  We, therefore, ask parents to consider the following:

  • If your student received an above-average grade in a subject and/or you have recently received a satisfactory progress report, you may choose to bypass conferencing with that specific teacher(s).
  • Due to time constraints, please limit conferences to no more than five minutes, especially when others are waiting.  This is particularly true for our honors classes which typically attract much parent interest although the need is often not terribly pressing.
  • If your student has received an unsatisfactory grade on the progress report we encourage your attendance.

If you are unable or choose not to attend conferences, report cards will be sent home with students on November 28th.

Be a Thornton Volunteer AVID Tutor

Here at Thornton, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a 7th and 8th grade elective that helps students achieve academic success and be college ready. We are looking for several parents to be volunteer tutors.


AVID students participate in tutorials on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, and each tutorial group needs a tutor or facilitator to monitor the group’s progress and keep them focused. The job of the tutor is not to give the students the right answer, but to guide student members as they support the presenters. Tutors do not need to know the answer to the students’ questions to be effective.


Tutor training and ongoing support will be provided.


If interested, please contact Mrs. Harman-Murray at x 58036 or Ms. Odland at x 58038
