Weekly Parent Email – September 2, 2022

September 6, 2022

At Williamsburg Academy, we want you to have as much information as possible to help your student succeed. That’s why I hope you’ll take advantage of Parent-Mentor Conferences, coming up the week of September 12-16. 

Starting today, you can request a personal update on your student’s progress directly from their mentor in one of two formats: an emailed Parent-Mentor Update (PMU) or a live online Parent-Mentor Conference (PMC). 

Both PMUs and PMCs will take place from September 12-16. Read below to learn more about each option and decide which one is right for you.

Parent-Mentor Update (PMU): If you’re happy with your student’s progress but still want a personal update from their mentor, request a PMU. The mentor will send you a detailed email describing how your student is doing and informing you of any concerns by September 16.

To request a PMU, contact your student’s mentor via SIS. In SIS, navigate to your child’s name, select the “Classes” tab, then click on the mentor’s name in the right-hand column.

Parent-Mentor Conference (PMC): If you have a specific concern or in-depth question regarding one of your student’s courses, sign up for a PMC. These are 10-15 minute online meetings with the course mentor to get personalized insights on your student’s performance. Please check your inbox for a link to the parent sign-up.

Our mentors look forward to meeting with you soon to ensure your student is inspired, challenged, and engaged!
