When does your school have fall conferences?
We have ours the week of Thanksgiving, so are just getting them set up. Although I have done this for years now, I still always feel a little nervous in preparing for them and wondering if there are going to be some surprise questions or concerns.
But, as nervous as we get, I imagine some parents are more anxious since it is about THEIR child...what might we say about their child that they don't know?
I created this form to alleviate tension for both us and the families. It is a very simple REMINDER, but also opens up the conversation and opportunity to make sure you plan the conference accordingly and use the 15 or 20 minutes to discuss what the parents want.
I feel like letting the parents know ahead of time that you care enough about their child to send this note home, sets the tone for a GREAT meeting to come!
I hope you find it helpful, too!
