Parent Teacher Conferences

November is shaping up to be another exciting month at Locust.  This month we will be having our first Parent- Teacher Conferences.  For some of you this will be your first time in this kind of setting.  Here are some helpful tips to help your conference be a successful one.

  • Start with a positive attitude.  Don’t waste valuable conference time by focusing on the negative.  You and the teacher are a team.  Positive comments such as “How can we solve this problem working together?” will be the first step in coming up with good solutions.

  • Let the teacher know if there is a particular topic you want to discuss.  If you want to talk about your child’s progress in reading, let the teacher know.

  • Be specific.  Bring with you any work that is of concern.  Describe clearly any situations in the classroom that makes your child uneasy.  Ask the teacher to describe your child’s strengths and weaknesses.  Ask to see your child’s work.

  • Discuss the whole child.  Your child’s social and emotional development is as important as academic success.  Include questions about his/her interaction with other children and willingness to participate in class discussions.

  • Leave with a plan.  The conference should end with a clear statement of what you will do and what the teacher will do. 

50th Day of School

November 20 is the 50th Day of School.  Students are invited to dress in a fabulous fifties outfit.  Students will be studying the past verses the present, focusing on vocabulary, as well as do many activities with the number 50!
