Throughout your child’s time in early childhood, elementary school and middle school, you’ll be invited to attend some form of parent-teacher conferences. These conferences are short – about 15-20 minutes, and between you and your child’s teacher. The purpose of these conferences is for the parents/caregivers and the teacher to collaborate, establish and identify the student’s strengths and areas for improvement.
Grades 1-6 will be holding Three-Way Parent -Caregiver/ Teacher Conferences. During these conferences, students discuss their learning and understanding with their parents/caregivers and teacher, who are responsible for supporting the student through this process. Students are responsible for reflecting upon work samples they have chosen to share, that have been previously selected with guidance and support from the teacher. The student, parents/caregivers and the teacher collaborate to establish and identify the student’s strengths and areas for improvement. This should lead to the setting of new goals, with everyone determining how they can support the achievement of these goals. These meetings usually take about 15-20 minutes.
