Please make sure to stop by your child’s classroom door to sign up for a time and date to meet with your child’s teacher. Teachers are so excited to share all of the new developments that have been happening with your child! This is an important time to review developmental milestones, set developmental goals and get to know your family better. Here is how you can prepare to actively participate in parent-teacher conferences:
Be willing and ready to share information about your child and family.
You know your child better than anyone else and have valuable insights to share with the teacher.
Never miss a parent-teacher conference.
Use the conference as an opportunity to exchange information with the teacher and discuss ways to work together to enhance your child’s education. If you can’t visit in person, schedule a telephone call to discuss your child’s progress.
Arrive on time.
Teachers usually have a tight schedule for conferences— typically 20 minutes per family. Be considerate of other parents whose conferences will take place after yours.
Listen with an open mind.
Ask questions when you don’t understand. Voice your concerns, but be open to suggestions.
Think about or write down one or two questions to ask the teacher.
Ask the teacher to suggest activities you can do at home to reinforce your child’s learning.
The school will be closed Thursday 27 & Friday 28 of November 2014 for Thanksgiving! Enjoy these few days off with Family and Friends and we will all see you next Monday.
