This week our school is having parent/teacher conferences. The first grading period is over already! Addy seems to be doing well. I guess we will see what her teacher has to say. Has anyone ever been blindsided by a conference? I am nervous for some reason. How is school going for everyone?
Our first parent/teacher meetings aren't until November, but they just started school earlier this month. I am actually okay with them now, since it's my 4th year with this school.. they get a report card (progression thing) and the meetings are a few days after. But school is going good, she leaves and comes home pretty happy!
Ours is in November. Yes, I'm going to be nervous. As much as Ethan loves school and the teacher told me he's doing well, I'm nervous that they are going to tell me that he's not meeting expectations or something. I guess I'm just a worry wart.
We did a parent curriculum night. I am not sure if they do parent teacher conferences here. I will have to ask. She is doing great academically. It is her behavior that is an issue. She seems to think she knows everything and isn't required to listen. She has TONS of homework. It is exhausting.
Ours are in November as well. I would hope that no parent is ever blindsighted by a conference... it is my belief that if there are any serious issues or concerns that the teacher would contact you before the conference. We are having some problems with Katie... not behavior or anything, she is just having a difficult time transitioning to a full day program and is really tired in the afternoon, which then leads to her not participating.
It went well! Relieved to hear Addy is thriving in Kindergarten! Her big sister is an overachiever. I sometimes worry about Addy following a year behind her, since Addy is her own girl who would gladly not go to school.
We haven't had one yet. I'm pretty sure ours are at the end of October.
I'm thinking if there was a major issue they would call ahead of time. I can't see how it would benefit waiting until a conference to address it.
I'm sure it's just nerves.
