Parent Teacher Conferences

posted Oct 6, 2016, 11:57 AM by Martha Rae

Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place on November 7 and November 8.  As always, these days are meant for short updates (no more than 15 minutes with each teacher/team). 

We are pleased to inform you that we will be using our on-line program (PTC WIZARD) which allows you to schedule your own appointments with your child's teachers.  The system works on a first come, first served basis.  You can access the website here.  It is important that you have your child's schedule with teachers available 
prior to logging on to the ptc wizard as the two data bases are not connected.  Decide on what teachers you need to meet with and then schedule your appointments.  Once completed, please print your schedule from PTC Wizard and bring it with you on conference day as we will not have them printed for you.  If you are having troubles with the program operating correctly please try a different web browser.  Feel free to email Martha Rae at mrae@bownet.org with any questions on using the system.  Please keep in mind that in order to meet with your child's teachers, you must make an appointment in the PTC Wizard; there are no walk in appointments.  Important - the last day to sign up is November 6 at midnight.   

If your child is on a team (all freshmen and sophomores) or is currently in World Studies (all juniors), it is important that you book that group/team of teachers as one conference and not individually with the 2 or 4 teachers Here are the teams as they appear in the wizard:

Grade 9:  AM Humanities, IST 9, BEST 9 = Dave Raynard, Angella Mullins, Laurel Swope-Brush and Chris Raabe

Grade 9:  PM Humanities, IST 9, BEST 9 = Nick Watson, Gina Aubin, Dan Calder and Cliff Chulada

Grade 10:  AM American Studies, IST 10, BEST 10 = Cathy Knowles, Kristina Brown, Amanda Guilbert and Ben Forbes

Grade 10:  PM American Studies, IST 10, BEST 10 = Crystal Bonin, Brenda Barth, Drew Groves and Christine Bourque

Grade 11:  World Studies (Period 1-2 & 3-4) = Erin Magoon and Derek DeAngelis

Grade 11:  World Studies (Period 5-6 & 7-8) = Anne Barnea and Lily Woo


The following teachers will only be available for appointments during these times:


Chen Jiang:  Monday 1:15-8 PM

Helene Begley:  Tuesday 7:30 AM-3 PM

Ilsya Khasanova:  Monday 5-8 PM

Grace Freije:  Monday 1:15-8 PM


Once you schedule your appointments you can modify or cancel them by clicking on the view/modify my itinerary icon within the wizard.  To make a change, create a new appointment and then cancel the old appointment (don't forget to cancel the old one!).  You can also ask the system to resend your email confirmation by selecting the email me my itinerary icon.  Or simply print your itinerary by selecting the print my itinerary link.


This info can also be found on the BHS website along with a parent guide with step by step directions.


The PTC Wizard opens on October 6 at midnight and closes on November 6 at midnight.


We look forward to seeing you in November!
