They always sneak up on me! I know they’re on “the calendar,” but I always forget (or block out) how much time and paperwork go into each one.
I wish I had more to share, but I MUST get ready for this upcoming week. We get out early tomorrow and Tuesday so parents and teachers can meet. The majority of my conferences are tomorrow from 1:00-7:00.
I do have a tip that always helps the conference run smoothly:
Create a checklist/notes page for each student.
I have a generic template for things I want to cover with the parents, but I write personal notes about each child after printing it out.
- reading/writing levels
- SuccessMaker scores
- testing data (CogAT/ITBS scores)
- strengths and weakness (COMPLIMENT SANDWICH!)
- behavior issues/possible solutions (if needed)
Here’s a snapshot of the checklist:

I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend and has a great week ahead of them! Do you have early release days for parent conferences?
