Teacher/Family Conferences

WMS parent/teacher conferences will take place via scheduled ZOOM meetings starting Tuesday, October 26th. Below are the instructions for scheduling the conference times with your student’s teachers through Family Access. The sign up process will be available to families starting at 10am on Tuesday, Oct. 12th. Due to the limited number of conference appointments available, we ask that you choose one content (ELA, math, social studies, science) and one elective teacher. All teachers have posted Curriculum Night videos on the WMS web site that contain a great deal of information about their classes. This information may answer many of the questions you have about your student’s classes and how to help your student do their best in each class. After viewing these videos, you may decide that you don’t need to schedule a conference. Please keep in mind that conferences are not required.


*The process to schedule a conference with Ms. Troyer/Mr. Muller’s 6th grade science classes is different, all conferences for their classes can only be set up by contacting the WMS office at (360) 596-3000. Their conferences will be through ZOOM, only the scheduling of a conference is different.

How do I attend conferences?

Each of our teachers will have a Zoom conference link on our WMS web site. When it is your scheduled turn to conference, click on the link for that teacher. Once in, you will enter the Waiting Room until it is your turn and the teacher will admit you into the conference. Each conference is set for 10 minutes in length.
