Parent conferences are a valuable tool in the education of any child. During conferences, the teacher and parent or guardian have the opportunity to talk about important information that will help the student throughout their education. Active participation of parents is essential! Communication between home and school is one of the best ways to ensure that a child’s school experience is successful. For more information on Student Led Conferences, please contact your school.
