Conferences are next week. As educators, this is one of the most important times of the year because we get to talk directly with you about your child(ren). Nobody knows your child better than you, and we are partners with you in your child's education. Conferences are a chance to exchange information. The teacher will share data about your child's academic achievement and growth thus far and any social strengths and needs we see at school. You (as family) should share with the teacher what your child says about school so far, what his/her strengths are, if you have any academic or social concerns for your child, and what level of communication you need from the teacher. We realize that a 15 minute conference goes very fast, but think of it as the beginning of a partnership that will continue for the remainder of this year.

Every child has a conference time scheduled and teachers have sent home reminders about conferences. If you are wondering when your conference is, please contact your child's teacher right away.
