Benefits of BTS nights and parent-teacher conferences

A great way to get a handle on what’s going on in your child’s academic life is to attend back-to-school nights and parent-teacher conferences. There are numerous benefits of attending these sessions: first, it signals to your child and his teachers that you are interested and involved in your child’s academic life. Second, both provide excellent opportunities to get to know each teacher’s personality, style, policies, and expectations. Third, and perhaps most importantly, by gathering this information early on, you’ll be better prepared to support your child appropriately and effectively throughout the school year.
