One of the strategies to establish and maintain a good working relationship with students’ parents and ensure increasing parental involvement and support is through Parent-Teacher Meetings. These meetings which are held over three (3) times a year, in March, June and November respectively are crucial to provide substantial information to parents about their children’s work progress and well-being.
The first Parent – Teacher Chat was held on March 10, 2018 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. Most existing and new parents were present to meet up with teachers to review their children’s 1st quarter performance. The second and third meeting in June and November respectively should set parents at ease when discussing their children’s overall progress.
In entirety, parents will find Parent-Teacher meetings useful as these serve as a platform to share philosophy of education, class management, crucial information about their children and the importance of parental involvement. Suffice it to say, the manner in which schools communicate and interact with parents affects the extent and quality of parents’ home involvement with their children’s learning. Taking the time to hear parents out can help create a better school-to-home connection that will prove useful in later stages of learning.
Most importantly, parents become more confident about the value of their school involvement and the substantial role that they play in their children’s education. Keeping parents informed have become more important now than ever before.
