​​​Parent-teacher conferences are an opportunity to engage in conversation about your child’s learning. Parents/guardians and teachers are able to connect face-to-face and communicate openly about student learning, especially with respect to areas of strength and areas of growth. They help build and sustain respectful relationships that allow both parties to share information and develop strategies to support student success.​​​

Teachers will not be in a position to give you an academic progress report at this early stage in the school year, rather, the focus is on how your child/ren has settled into the new school year and how the family can work with the school to ensure that students attain their academic and social goals.
