Tips for a Successful Elementary Conference 

Family Involvement

The first and most important step is your involvement. Attendance is essential to build a relationship with your child’s teacher.

Be On Time

Your time with the teacher is limited because you are not the only parent the teacher is meeting with – make the most of it.

Bring Questions

You may want to know how your child is performing, or if there’s a particular subject where improvement is needed. Before the meeting, prioritize your questions.

Behavior at Home

Bring up anything happening at home that could affect your child’s behavior, learning, or participation in class.

Communication Going Forward 

Ask what is the preferred method of communication such as phone calls, emails or meetings.
