Education is not something that just occurs in the classroom, during the school day. That’s why it’s so important for parents and families to be involved in education both as a support system and a partner.
Conferences across the district are coming up at the end of the week and it’s important to attend them whether your child is thriving or struggling or anywhere in between.

Kidshealth.org provides some really great tips on how to guide the conversation with your child’s teacher to get the most out of it.
