Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conferences will be held on dates and times listed above. The conference is an essential means of communicating with the school and your child’s teachers about your child’s progress. In the time before the conferences, I encourage you to come up with questions about your child and his/her achievement to date. As a starting point for your thinking, visit the PowerSchool parent portal and check your child’s grades. The purpose of the conference is to afford an opportunity for sharing information and views designed to promote the welfare of your child. During the conference, you are invited to discuss his/her program and progress and to set goals for the remainder of the year.
Please think about the information you would like to receive from the teacher regarding your child’s progress and information you think the teachers should know to help promote the highest level of achievement.
The following are some questions you may want to ask:
- How can I support his/her work at home?
- How does he/she get along with others?
- What difficulties, if any, is he/she experiencing?
- Is he/she working to his/her ability?
- How much time should he/she be spending on work at home?
It is also important for you to tell the teachers about your child’s home life, hobbies and habits. This information will help the teachers to understand your child better.
