Greetings Burbank Families,
As the first quarter of this school year ends a new one begins! Team Burbank is looking forward to seeing our families this month at parent-teacher conferences. Children do best in school when parents and teachers work together. Research shows that students learn more, have higher grades, and have better school attendance when parents are involved in their child’s education. That is why attending parent-teacher conferences is so important. It is a great way for parents to become involved and stay involved throughout the school year.
Parent-Teacher conferences are a good way to meet your child’s teacher and learn about your child’s academic performance, as well as the teacher’s expectations. If you know what is expected in the classroom, you can more easily address any issue that comes up as your child moves through the school year. By attending conferences, you also send a positive message to your child that school is important. Keep in mind that you are an equal partner at the conference. If you have questions or observations, the conference is a good time to share them with your child’s teacher. Do not forget to share what you know about your child. Your information helps the teacher better understand and teach your child.
As always, I look forward to seeing our Bobcat Families. My door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. GO BOBCATS!!
