Welcome to (Bienvenue a l'ecole) Ladner Elementary School

Dear Ladner Elementary Families, 

On Wednesday October 18th or Thursday October 19th you are invited to meet with your child’s teacher.  The purpose of these early conferences is to provide an opportunity for you to share in your child’s education and for the teacher to explain his/her expectations. Together you may wish to discuss:

1)  Goals for your child’s learning, defining areas of concern and success.

2)  Homework expectations.

3)  Communication between home and school.

4)  Work habits and attitudes towards learning.

5)  Appropriate behaviour expectations and consequences. 

These conferences do not include students or siblings.  Therefore, we request that childcare arrangements be made at home.

Ten-minute conferences will be scheduled as follows:

Wednesday October 18th - 2:00 - 5:50 P.M. 

Thursday October 19th - 2:00 - 3:50 P.M.


To provide time for the conferences, students will be dismissed at 1:49 p.m. on both days.

 Once again, we will be using the simple online booking system for all of our conferences. Please follow these directions:

Conferences have been scheduled for 10 minutes.  If additional time is required, please arrange for another meeting with your child’s teacher at a mutually convenient time.

Thank you for being a part of our community of learners and I hope everyone is able to join us on one of these days.
