Parent teacher conferences build partnerships
SUIMA’s parent teacher conferences were held last week, and our turnout was wonderful! Though we didn’t make 100% due to various circumstances, we did reach 95%! The purpose of conferences is to help set goals: culturally, socially, and academically.
Conferences also help build partnerships between home and school. But these partnerships involve more than just attending conferences. These partnerships build as soon as parents’ step through the door of the SUIMA office or their child’s classroom. Partnerships are also built through involvement and cooperation in the form of volunteering or being present in the community.
We know that all parents lead very busy lives, and we thank you for taking the time to attend the conferences. We believe that the most important and effective involvement that parents can engage in is involvement with their own children. We also believe we have some awesome parents!
