Parent-Teacher Conferences

Middleton teachers will be available for 15 minute conferences on Tuesday, November 24 from 12:00 to 8:00 p.m.

District 73.5 uses an online sign-up system called PT Conference Maker (PTCM) for conference communication and scheduling. PTCM is designed to be easy to use; requires little to no experience using the Web; and allows parents to sign up for conferences from anywhere, at anytime, on any Internet-connected device. Parents can contact the Middleton School office at 847.673.1222 during school hours for assistance or with questions.

Lost & Found

Please take a moment to check out the Lost & Found table near the Cafeteria before or after your scheduled conference. All items will be donated to charity during winter break

ELP Inquiry Window

Our Extended Learning Program provides honors classes for students in Math and English Language Arts in grades 4-8. Students qualify for these classes based on a variety of measures. Families are notified of this information in June (for class placement for the upcoming school year). Parents may complete a Parent Inquiry if they feel their child may benefit from a more rigorous curriculum. The Parent Inquiry window opens October 1 and remains open until April 1. Parent Inquiry paperwork is available in the main office of Middleton and McCracken, or by contacting your school’s Assistant Principal.
