1st Year Parent Teacher Meeting
Thursday, 7th April, 2022
4.00 to 6.30 pm

The Parent Teacher Meeting for 1st Year classes is scheduled to take place online this year on Thursday 7th April, 2022 from 4.00 pm until 6.30 pm.    Your son/daughter will receive a “Microsoft Teams” invite to the meeting via their school student email address on Wednesday, 6th April.

At this online meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss your son's/daughter's progress in all aspects of school life.  I hope that it is a positive experience for you and your son/daughter, although everyone here appreciates that it can be quite an anxious one.   Please note that your son/daughter is expected to attend with you.

The system for requesting appointments is now online and you should access this using the logon details sent home in a letter to you via your son/daughter to you on the 29th March, 2022.   If you did not receive this letter please contact the school immediately.

When you logon, it is important to check with your son/daughter that the teachers listed on screen are correct.  It is essential that the teachers' names are accurate at this stage, as it prevents unnecessary appointments being scheduled and ensures that you have the opportunity to see the correct teachers.  

Please complete the priority column inputting number 1 beside the teacher you most wish to see and then 2, 3, 4, 5 and so forth.  As some teachers teach a large number of pupils in this year group, it may not be possible to accommodate all requests.    It is essential that you input your choices on screen and save the changes no later than Sunday, 3rd April, 2022..

Should you have any difficulties/queries in this regard, please contact Madeleine in the school office at 018353066  or via email at admin@ashcom.ie      On Monday, 4th April, we will close off the "requesting appointments" online system to Parents/Guardians in order to commence the scheduling of appointments.

  

Following this, you will then be alerted by text message as to when details of the times of your appointments are available online for you to view (using the same website link and your specific logon details stated in the letter sent home).   Each teacher will be advised of the time of your appointment and each teacher will send an email to your son/daughter's school email on Wednesday, 6th April with a link to the meeting with you both. Entry to each meeting will only be permitted via your son's/daughter's email address.  Please note that each appointment is limited to a maximum of 3 minutes, but should you have a significant concern, and a longer discussion is required, it would be more appropriate for you to arrange a separate meeting with the relevant teacher or with the specific Class Tutor or Year Head, Mr. Gibney

The Principal, Mr. Stewart, Deputy Principal, Mr. Moriarty, the school Chaplain, Mr. McCauley, the Career Guidance Counsellors
Ms. Rahilly/Ms O’Neill are also available for a pre-arranged meeting.  Should you wish to arrange a remote appointment with these, please email your request to admin@ashcom.ie

In the event that neither Parent/Guardian is available to attend the meeting OR you are restricted to a time limit, please email Madeleine at admin@ashcom.ie or phone the school at 01-8353066 so that we can amend available time re generation of appointment

Regards,

Mr. Gibney                                       Mr. Moriarty

Year Head,                                       Deputy Principal.
