Parent Conferences are an important time to discuss your child's strengths and areas of challenge and also make a plan to best support them. Here are some suggestions on how to make the most of your time: 

1. Write down quesitons beforehand.

2. Take a notepad and something to write with so you leave with correct information. 

3. Use this time to discuss your child and share any important information with your teacher about previous years experiences. 

4. Share this information with your child when you get home. Celebrate milestones and discuss challenges.
