    Parent-Teacher Conferences

    Parent-teacher conferences mean parents and the teacher exchange information for the benefit of the student. Whether the student is a first grader whose parents are helping him or her learn to read or a senior struggling with calculus, conferences can help parents and teachers work together to plan ways they can help the student work to their highest capability and succeed.

    What Could I Ask?
    Here is a sampling of questions you may want to ask:

    • At what level is my child working in the major subjects?
    • What are the reasons that he/she is at a particular level?
    • What work do you expect my child to cover during the year?
    • In addition to the goals my child has set for himself/herself, are there other areas he / she should work on this year?
    • How can I help my student reach her / his goals?
    • Does my child arrive in the classroom on time, calm and ready for work?
    • Does he / she contribute worthwhile information to the class?
    • Does my child work and play well with other members of the class and with other children on the playground?
    • Is my child developing good work and study habits?
    • Is he / she emotionally mature? What can I do to help with social and emotional growth during the year?
    • How can I help you?

    Conference Suggestions
    Here are a few "helpful hints" that you may find useful as you prepare for your child's conference.

    • Make written notes concerning any questions that you or your child may have.
    • Please bring these "helpful" notes with you to the conference.
    • Try to make specific comments about the report card without comparing it to previous ones or to another child's progress report card.
    • Please encourage your child to base his/her feelings of success on setting and achieving goals instead of what is on the report card.
