  • Elementary Student Conferences will be held on Tuesday, November 7th.  Kindergarten Conferences will be held on Tuesday, November 7th and Wednesday, November 8th. In an effort to facilitate conference scheduling and provide more flexibility to parents, Paxtonia will be scheduling parent-teacher conferences online. 

    We ask that between October 24th and November 5th you access the link to schedule your student(s) conference visit(s). Access to schedule via the provided link will close November 6th. While we realize due to the large size of our school population we cannot always accommodate everyone’s first choice in conference times, we hope this process will allow you more flexibility in the conference time selection process.

    Please see the below directions for more information on how to select and schedule your conference time(s). To schedule your preferred time for a parent-teacher conference,

    1.    Go to

    2.    Click on the name of your child’s teacher.

    3.    Select the desired date/time for your conference by clicking on “Sign Up.”

    4.    Submit the requested information. If you have several children attending our school, click on “Register for Multiple Conferences” and follow the prompts to schedule your children for several conferences.

    After you schedule a conference online, the date and time are reserved for you. If you entered your email address correctly, you will receive email confirmation of your conference.

    If you are unable to sign up for a time and date online, please send a note with three preferred times and dates to your child’s teacher.  Once we receive your note, we will attempt to schedule a conference for your desired date and time but cannot guarantee your top choices as time slots fill up quickly.  Thank you for your support of your child’s education.
