PARENT CONFERENCES

As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. You and your child’s school have something in common: You both want your child to learn and do well. When parents and teachers talk to each other, each person can share important information about your child’s talents and needs. Each person can also learn something new about how to help your child. Parent–teacher conferences are a great way to start talking to your child’s teachers.
 
Make the most of parent-teacher conferences so that everyone wins, especially your child.
 
A two-way conversation.
Like all good conversations, parent–teacher conferences are best when both people talk and listen. The conference is a time for you to learn about your child’s progress in school: Ask to see data about your child’s attendance, grades, and test scores. Find out whether your child is meeting school expectations and academic standards. This is also a time for the teacher to learn about what your child is like at home. When you tell the teacher about your child’s skills, interests, needs, and dreams, the teacher can help your child more.

Emphasis on learning.
Good parent–teacher conferences focus on how well the child is doing in school.

Opportunities and challenges.
Just like you, teachers want your child to succeed. You will probably hear positive feedback about your child’s progress and areas for improvement.
 
Have a great night with your Bulldog Community!!
