Parent-Teacher Conference Scheduling Program

 

In order to facilitate the scheduling of conferences, John F. Kennedy Elementary School will be using an online scheduling program. This program will assist you in saving time and simplifying the scheduling process.

 

Simply Log on to: www.jfk.btwpschools.org and click on “SCHEDULE A CONFERENCE” (located under “Latest News.”)

Once you enter the program, follow these easy steps:

Select a Location = Choose Grade Level or Special Education

Select a Date = Choose either November 16th, 17th, 20th or 21st.

Find your child’s teacher (Bottom Left of page) and click on a 15 minute timeslot that is convenient for your schedule.  (Please note: Timeslots shaded in “Gray” are no longer available).

Enter your contact information (right-hand side of the page)

Click “CONFIRM”

            “Appointment Confirmed” will appear = Click “Close” (to schedule multiple conferences

Click “SCHEDULE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT” then click #3 “Parent Teacher Conference” and continue to schedule the next conference.)

Once you click “CLOSE” a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you designated in the contact information section. The confirmation email will contain a confirmation code. If for any reason you need to cancel a scheduled conference, you must have the confirmation code or simply contact the main office.

 

This program will be open for scheduling conferences on:

November 3rd at 5:00pm – November 13th at 5:00pm

Student Clever Sign in

This year we are using a website portal called Clever. Clever is a one-stop spot to get all the important links that your students use. Not only does Clever have the most used links, some of the programs that are supported will also auto-log your student in! No remembering a dozen different usernames and passwords!! 

 

To access Clever, you need to use the Chrome browser and go to: www.clever.com/in/berlin-twp

 

Then you will "Log in with Google" using your school assigned FULL email address (with the @btwpschools.org at the end) and password.

Then you will install the Clever Extension - just follow the link and click install. (If you do not do this step, the links will not auto-log you in!!!)

You should be able to then click on any of the links and will be auto logged into MOST of the programs :)

 

There are a few that still do not support Clever, so those you will still have to manually log into. Your teacher will make sure you have the correct passwords for those.

 

There is also a Clever app for the iPad if you use that instead of a computer.

Welcome Back

Dear J.F.K. Parents & Guardians,

It is with much excitement and great anticipation to welcome you to the 2017 – 2018 school year as Principal of the John F. Kennedy Elementary School. I trust that all of you have enjoyed the change of pace that the summer brings to refresh and rejuvenate.  We are looking forward to working together with you to ensure another productive and successful school year at the John F. Kennedy School.

Student Arrival and Dismissal Procedures – If you are dropping off/picking up, please park on Mount Vernon Avenue. If you plan on using the front loop, please do not park your car inside the loop as this impedes our arrival/dismissal process and is dangerous to other families dropping off/picking up. Additionally, once your student(s) have safely exited on the curb side, please pull away from the curb to allow space for other families still arriving.

NotePlease remember to bring photo ID when picking up your student(s).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at mmurphy@btwpschools.org or the Main Office Secretary; Janett Masterson at jmasterson@btwpschools.org or via phone (856) 767-9480 ext. 1310.
