Parent Teacher Conferences


Parent Teacher Conferences are Wednesday from 4 - 6:30 and Thursday from 6 - 8:30

When it comes to your child, we all have something in common: we all want your child to do well! When parents and teachers have a chance to talk we have a great opportunity to share essential information about your child’s strengths, needs and areas of concern. In order to ensure an effective Parent Teacher Conference there are a few things you can do as a parent to be prepared.


- Review your child’s work.

- Talk with your child about their concerns and how they think they are doing in school

- Make a list of questions before hand

- Think about the ways you would like to be involved in your child’s education and the things you do to support learning at home.


During the meeting remember, it should be a two-way conversation. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! The teachers here at HBB want your child to be successful and it can be tough to communicate everything in just a 10 min conference, so don’t be afraid to ask for a time to follow up through email or phone call.


Our goal is to ensure a solid home-school partnership. Research shows that when teachers and parents work together we increase the likelihood of success for your child. We are all in this together!

Read Across America

Today we celebrated Read Across America Day and we had guest readers all throughout the building. I had the great pleasure of reading one of my favorites, The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore by William Joyce, to Mrs. Dyer's and Mrs. Lakey's class. My favorite part of the day was having some of our 5th grade students read to 1st graders!
