Gifford Grade School's parent teacher conferences will be held from Monday, October 26th through Friday, October 30th.  We will be scheduling conferences online this year.  Please follow the steps below to schedule a conference for each student in your family.  Please note that school dismisses at 2:10 on Thursday the 29th and there is also no school on Friday, October 30th.

Parents, you will need to click on the link below and then choose your child's class from the list. We will then need you to please enter the student's name, as well as your name and email address.  You can then choose the time slot that best suits your schedule, enter any comments that you'd like to share with the teacher, and then click submit.

All efforts will be made to schedule you into the time slot requested.  You will be contacted by email if we need to slightly readjust the schedule. Unless you hear otherwise, please plan on being here at the time you selected on the online form. Please contact Mrs. Pollard at if you have questions about the conference registration process.

Our vision is to create a student–focused school system that is recognized for the quality of its curriculum, caliber of its staff and the excellence of its graduates.

The school district we envision creates enthusiasm for learning and teaching; nurtures pride in student accomplishments; prepares students for the future; involves students, parents and community members meaningfully in the learning process; and is fiscally responsible.

It is the mission of the Gifford School District to develop students to their fullest potential and prepare them for the future.
