The essential foundation of school-community cooperation has always been - and always will be - the parent-school partnership. Nobody knows your child as well as you do. This is why taking part in Parent-Teacher Conferences is one of the most important ways you can help your child succeed in school. Here are some tips on how to make the most of your conferences with the teacher: 1.) Plan the time. 2.) Ask your child if he or she wants you to discuss something special at the meeting. 3.) Share home information with the teacher. 4.) Take a cooperative attitude. During Parent/Teacher Conferences, please take time to visit with Mrs. Keeling about your child's progress in reading, Mr. Evans for Physical Education and Health, Mr. Rick for Music, and Mrs. Boshart for Library Skills. There will not be a set scheduled time for parents to meet with them, so come when it is convenient for you. They look forward to visiting with you.
