Parent Teacher Conferences
Tuesday is our fall parent/teacher conference day. We set aside one day each fall to have initial parent/teacher conferences. Our teachers can certainly meet with parents throughout the year for concerns, but this day is specifically aimed at partnering with our parents to document progress of our students academically, as well as spiritually and socially.
It is exciting to see so many parents invested and interested in meeting with their children's teachers.
Several of our teachers are incorporating progress monitoring data from our CBMs (curriculum based measures), as well as class work and even reflections from the students as a part of their materials for these meetings.
Recently, I found some fabulous resources on Teachers Pay Teachers and Pinterest to share with our staff for them to utilize for these meetings.
