Please come on time for your Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 20th. It will be a HALF DAY for students, dismissal at 11:38am.
These conferences provide a great opportunity for you to talk with your child's teacher about what your child is learning at school and how you can support this learning at home.
Questions to Consider Asking Your Child's Teacher
▪ What is my child expected to learn, know, and do at this grade level based on the Common Core?
▪ How is my child developing the necessary skills and knowledge?
▪ What does my child do well, and what does he or she struggle with? Can you give me examples?
▪ How do you know when my child is making progress and when he/she needs additional help?
▪ What are you doing to support and motivate him/her?
▪ How do you challenge my child when he/she is doing well at something?
▪ How do you support my child when he/she needs extra help?
▪ What does my child get excited about learning?
▪ What can I do at home to support him/her?
▪ Are there programs or services in the community that could also help my child?
▪ Does my child seem engaged or happy at school?
▪ Has he/she made friends?
▪ How does my child get along with classmates and adults?
▪ Does my child participate in class discussions and group activities?
▪ Are there times when my child is more or less engaged?
Please respect the teacher's and other families time. Your child's teacher will most likely NOT HAVE time to answer all of your questions during the 10-minute conference. Keep a list of your questions and concerns to organize your thoughts before the conference and use your time more effectively. If you have a specific concern or question after the meeting ends, ask the teacher how s/he prefers that you contact her/him after the conference.
