Preparing for Parent-Teacher Conferences
Next week ISY will host its first Parent-Teacher Conferences of the year. These meetings are important as they allow you to talk openly with your child’s teachers about their progress, strengths, and areas for growth. Here are a few things parents can do to prepare:
- Talk with your child before the appointment. Find out what they enjoy about school, areas that they would like support in, and any questions they would like you to ask their teacher.
- Review the Progress Report. Last week your child’s progress report was made available through Powerschool. Take a moment to review it. This should provide you with a general understanding of what your child has been learning and their engagement.
- Organize your Questions: These meetings are short, if there are specific areas you are interested in, present these to the teacher early in the meeting.
- Assume positive intent: When parents and teachers work together, your child benefits. Assuming everyone at the meeting is there to support & encourage your child’s learning journey makes the partnership successful.
If at the end of the conference time you have more concerns or questions, feel free to ask for another appointment sometime in the future. Unfortunately, the schedule is very busy, and in order to be respectful of other parents’ time, it’s important for everyone to honor the schedule.
If you or your family are in need of any social, emotional, or educational support, please feel free to reach out to me, Patty Amundson-Geisel, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to support you.
