April Showers bring…Spring Conferences

BDS News

For all, April will bring warmer weather filled with sunshine, flowers, green grass, and spending time outdoors. For teachers and parents, April will bring SPRING CONFERENCES.

As a parent and former teacher, preparation for this event should be two-sided. Your child’s teacher must come prepared with samples of work, report cards, daily notes, insight regarding progress, and recommendations for improvement. A parent should also come to the conference prepared with insight and questions regarding their child’s performance.

A conference survey is one way to help parents and teachers work together to make Spring Conferences meaningful. The Beginning Preschool, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten Classrooms will send home a parent survey to complete and send back to each child’s teacher during the last week of March. The survey questions are designed to promote a conversation with your child regarding his/her experience this year.

Below is an example of a Parent Survey:

  1. What does your child enjoy most about Beginning Preschool, Preschool, or Pre-K?
  2. What is your child’s favorite part of the day? Least favorite?
  3. What has been your child’s biggest accomplishment in Beginning Preschool, Preschool, or Pre-K?
  4. Do you have any concerns/questions regarding your child’s trimester report?
  5. Do you feel your child is ready to move on to the next Preschool, Pre-K, or Kindergarten?
  6. Please describe your Brookridge Experience

Brookridge Day School will hold Spring Conferences on Friday, April 8, 2016. Parents, please be on the lookout for your child’s conference sign-up sheet coming soon!
