Dear Parent or Guardian:

Sandburg Middle School will be holding Parent/Teacher Conferences on:

Tuesday, February 20  3:00 - 8:00 p.m., Arena Style
Thursday, February 22  3:00 - 8:00 p.m., Arena Style

Our Parent/Teacher Conference nights are an unscheduled drop in format. Both evenings will be arena style. 6th grade teachers will be located in Gym B.  7th and 8th grade teachers will be located in Gym C. The Allied classes (Health/Phy Ed, Tech Ed, Art, FACS, Music) and Special Ed teachers will be in their classrooms, offices, or in the media center.

Enclosed is a list of our part time teachers. Please reference this sheet when determining what night to attend based on the teacher’s availability. Also, please note the dinner breaks for our teachers.

During conferences, you are invited to drop in to meet with any of your student’s teachers for a 5-minute conference.  Please be respectful of this time schedule.  Administrators, counselors, and other support staff will also be available for you to meet with throughout the evening. You can expect to be here for 40-60 minutes if you see all your student’s teachers. 

A representative from the Hennepin County Library will also be in the foyer with library card sign up information and other resources offered through the public library. There will be a Scholastic Book Fair in the media center both nights of conferences. And, there will be a parent survey available about parent communication.

We hope you and your student are able to attend one of these evenings to learn about his/her academic progress, plus discuss non-academic topics including social skills.   Since these conferences are about the students, we believe it is important for them to attend and be involved in the process.  Please inform your student to bring their Chromebook to conferences. 

If you have special concerns or questions you wish to discuss at conferences, please call or e-mail your student’s counselor ahead of time to address these issues.

6th grade, Debra Dragseth, 763.504.8218 or
7th grade, Rosinta Stromquist,  763.504.8220 or
8th grade w/last names A-F, Debra Dragseth
8th grade w/last names G-Z, Rosinta Stromquist

On behalf of the staff at Sandburg Middle School, we look forward to meeting with you!
