Parent Teacher Conferences are quickly approaching. On March 14th 2019, conferences will take place at P.S.120 from 12:40pm-2:40 pm and 4:30pm-7:30pm. This is a great opportunity for both parents and teachers to build a partnership with one another so that students receive all of the support that they might need. Below are some effective questions to ask at the upcoming parent-teacher conference.
May I tell you about my child? Since nobody knows your child better than you do, this is extremely helpful to your child’s teacher so that he/she can learn more. Provide your child’s teacher with more information on what motivates your child, likes and dislikes, special skills, strengths and weaknesses.
May I tell you about what’s going on at home?
How is my child doing socially/emotionally?
In what areas does my child need improvement?
What do you think my child is particularly good at?
Is my child performing on grade level?
Is my child doing his/her best?
Does my child need extra help in any areas? What can we do to provide that extra help?
What skills are being addressed in class right now, and how do they tie into the overall goals of the school year?
