“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.â€

It is the time of year that parent teacher conferences are being held and the mid-term grades are coming out. Both of these events give parents an opportunity to get a good pulse on the start of the school year. However, these conferences can be a bit uncomfortable at times. After all, you are likely sitting across from a complete stranger talking about someone you love to the moon and back!

Here are a few questions that you can ask at conferences to make sure that you get the most out of those precious moments:

  1. What will my child learn this year in key subjects like math, science, social studies and language arts? (Elementary age focus)
  2. How will my child be evaluated? (Elementary age focus)
  3.   How do you know if they are ready to move onto the next grade?  (Elementary age focus)
  4. How are grades determined in this class?
  5. How do I know on a daily basis what homework is assigned?  When tests will occur?
  6. How do you accommodate differences in learning?

Parent-teacher conferences are done to keep parents updated on student achievement. Schools want involved parents!   Be sure to go to conferences and check in periodically through email or phone calls.

Best,

All Star Achievement:

We had nearly 70 students take our PrepStar Premium class in August.  We guarantee a 2 point increase for students who have previously taken the ACT test.  We have had only two students from the classes request a refund because they did not go up by 2.  That is about a 97% success rate!  Not too shabby.

Did you know?

The average college student is taking 5.8 years to get a bachelor’s degree.
