Tips for a Successful Parent-Teacher Conference

General Hints

Parent-teacher conferences are an excellent opportunity to find out how your child is adjusting to the new school year and to get to know her teachers. Here are some general hints on how to have a successful conference:

  • Ask your child if there is anything that he would like you to discuss with the teacher.
  • Jot down everything that you want to talk about at the conference.
  • Arrive promptly or a few minutes early.
  • Begin with positive comments about the teacher or classroom.
  • Avoid lengthy discussions of topics that are not related to the purpose of the conference.
  • Be open to suggestions from the teacher.
  • Keep your emotions under control.
  • Take notes about what has been discussed and share them with your child.
  • Express appreciation for the conference.
  • Do not stay beyond your allotted time.

Parental involvement is at the heart of student achievement, and you play a pivotal role in the education of your children. We want you to know that we appreciate your involvement and encourage your continued partnership as we enrich the academic experience for our students. We are great believers that education does not happen just at school. Many parents are asking what technological resources we can recommend to assist with learning at home.

We recognize that it is not always possible to get to the office during working hours and that parents do not always receive papers that are given to their children to take home. With this in mind, we will be striving to make most documents available online in pdf format.
