                   Parent Teacher Conferences
                        Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming!

                Here are some helpful tips so that you can be prepared

                  Before the Conference

   Talk to your child and ask about their teacher and
   classmates. What is school is like for them?
   Bring a list of concerns with you to the conference

                                                   At the Conference

                               Keep an open mind to the teachers ideas and concerns. It is
                               important for you to know where your child is struggling
                               Work with the teacher to determine goals and expectations.
                               Take notes so that you can discuss the conference later with
                               your son or daughter.

                  After the Conference

   Discuss the conference with your child and express
   your expectations as a parent.
   If there were concerns brought up at the conference,
   keep in contact with the teacher and schedule a follow
   up meeting to discuss your child’s progress.
