KHS parent conferences
Kenston High School will hold parent-teacher conferences on Feb. 13 from 4-8 p.m. in the high school gymnasium. The parent-teacher conference is an opportunity for parents to learn about their child’s progress in school and for teachers to gain insight into their student’s home and community lives. The high school utilizes an “open” format with teachers at individual tables, set up in the gym, where parents can stop to see any or all of their child’s teachers. Contact your child’s team leader to set up an appointment if more time is needed than the allotted 5-10 minutes.
