Parent Teacher Conference Information

September 2018

Dear Senior High School Parents:

One of the best ways parents can help students succeed in school is to participate regularly in conferences with teachers. Please accept this invitation to attend conferences with your student to discuss your child’s progress with his/her teachers. When parents, students and teachers work together, we can assist each other in providing a positive experience for your son or daughter.

This year we will be offering two unique opportunities for conferences with teachers.
Tuesday, October 9th (evening) – teachers will be in the Nora Gym & Cafeteria to meet individually with parents and students. These are not scheduled and conferences should be limited to a maximum of 5 to 7 minutes.
Tuesday, October 16th (evening) – teachers will be in the Nora Gym & Cafeteria to meet individually with parents and students. These are not scheduled and conferences should be limited to a maximum of 5 to 7 minutes.
Thursday, October 18th (morning) – schedule a group conference where you can meet with all of your student’s teachers at one time. These will be scheduled in a 20 minute time slot.

The schedule for these three opportunities is:
Tuesday, October 9th      3:00 p.m. – 7:00p.m. Nora Gym & Cafeteria
Tuesday, October 16th    3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Nora Gym & Cafeteria
Thursday, October 18th  7:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Scheduled in classrooms

You will not need to make an appointment for the conference format on either Tuesday night. An appointment IS necessary for the Thursday conferences. They can be scheduled by contacting the Main Office at 552-5500. We encourage parents and students to attend together. If you need more information, please call the Main Office.

The entrance for conferences will be through the new main entrance. Parking will be available in the main parking lot. Handicapped parking is also available and is marked.

Theatre Department Presents Cabaret


Cabaret Poster for Website
The Dubuque Senior Theatre Department will host a special one-night-only cabaret performance on Saturday, October 13th at 7:30 PM. The cabaret concert will feature songs from the best of Broadway – including performances from classics from Frank Wildhorn’s Jekyll and Hyde to the hit Broadway comedy, Something Rotten. The concert will include more than 75 students from Dubuque Senior – past and present. This outstanding evening of musical theatre will be held in the Lamb-Hedeman Auditorium at Dubuque Senior High School. All proceeds from the performance will benefit Dubuque Senior’s performance of Footloose at the Iowa Thespian Festival in November.

Performance Details
 The cabaret will include a sneak peak of Dubuque Senior’s upcoming production of Footloose.
 Dubuque Senior’s performance of Footloose features junior Samantha Barklow as Ariel, and sophomore Gavin Hall as Ren, in a part made famous by Kevin Bacon in the 1980s hit movie.
 A medley from the chilling, gothic Frank Wildhorn classic Jekyll and Hyde will feature a cast of more than 20 students.
 The cabaret will also include a medley from the hilarious Something Rotten, an award-winning musical about William Shakespeare.
 The performance will also feature many Dubuque Senior Theatre alumni that are returning to the Lamb-Hedeman Auditorium for the first time in years.
 The benefit concert will help the Dubuque Senior Theatre program perform their first musical on the mainstage at the Iowa Thespian Festival in school history.
