Parent teacher conferences

Parent-teacher conferences have been the standard way to communicate between home and school.

But although apps and new platforms make it easier to connect, I’m concerned that some parents might think the online class newsletters and updates can replace face time with a teacher.

Parent teacher conferences allow more than mere monitoring student progress. Physically being in a child’s classroom, sitting at her desk and talking with other parents while waiting in the hallway add a depth and dimension to understanding a child’s life at school.
