School Open House Nights help parents to stay informed about their children’s progress. Open house also gives parents and teachers an opportunity to continue to strengthen communication to ensure students have a positive school experience.
This is also a great opportunity to see everything in action. Parents will get an overview of school culture, teachers, curriculum and unique programs.
Please call your child’s school for specific times or visit the campus website for information (click).

It’s important to remember that your child’s teacher wants to cover a lot of information with all the parents in a very short amount of time, while still having a few moments to answer questions. This event is not a time to discuss your child’s individual needs. If you have concerns over your child’s academic progress or classroom behavior, you can write and email or send a letter in your child’s folder with your concerns. You can also call to schedule a parent-teacher conference.
To ensure you have a productive parent-teacher conference, prepare questions beforehand. Collect samples of your child’s work. Parent-teacher conferences should center on three major topics: the child, the classroom and the future. Remember to take notes. And do schedule an immediate follow-up meeting if something is unclear.
Parent-teacher conferences should occur as soon as parents notice a student struggling. Parent-teacher conferences can provide useful insight for immediate and clear next steps. Time is crucial for students’ learning and progress. Parents should come out of conferences with steps they can do to help their children.
Parents can also try to connect with the school guidance counselor. He or she can provide information about resources the school offers. This could include gifted testing as well as resources outside of school. Call the campus to find the correct personnel.
By working together, every child can have a positive educational experience and make greater learning gains.
