Tip of the Week
Be proactive in parent/teacher conferences
Use your parent/teacher conference as an opportunity to determine how you can best support your child at home. Find out where the teacher sees your child’s strengths and weaknesses at this point in the year, and ask for specific ways you (or your child’s tutor) can support her efforts outside of the classroom. The teacher will undoubtedly appreciate your partnership, and you will gain valuable insight to help your child thrive at school.
