Our Principal's Message

Welcome to October!

I truly believe that we all must work together to help children attain future success and that every child has the opportunity to achieve success in selected goal with hard work and grit. We are just finishing up first quarter and it is time hold conferences for all students to check in on each student’s progress. Conferences can be a stressful time for students, parents, and teachers. Please consider the following as a guide to help turn a stressful situation into a positive one. 

It is important to keep in mind that parents and teacher have common goals. They both want children to succeed and progress at a rate where children can take control of their own learning. While students learn in the classroom, that learning is reinforced at home with the parents. 

Please take a moment to talk with your child prior to the conference, even if the child will also attend the conference. It is recommended that older students attend the conference.

  • What subjects do you believe you are doing well in? Why?
  • What subject do you feel you struggle in? Why?
  • How do you get help when you do not understand?
  • How do you know when you are doing a good job in your classroom?
  • Is there anything you would like me to ask your teacher?

During the conference you should expect to hear which subjects your child is successful in and which subjects are a challenge for your child. You may be given reading and math dates for school testing like DAP (District assessment information in reading and math) and DIBELS (Reading assessment that predicts future success in reading grades K – 3). You should also be given information about opportunities your child can get involved in for additional assistance academically or behaviorally or extracurricular activities.

There are some questions you should expect from your child’s teacher. You should be asked how you are helping your child in the areas of reading and math at home. The classroom teacher may ask how you see your child’s academic progress and if there are any behavior concerns at home. You may also be asked what hobbies or interests are important to your child.

It is a good idea to write down some questions prior to the conference. Include questions your
child shared with you. Some of these questions may be answered as the teacher is sharing information about your child.

  • What does my child do well, and what does he or she struggle with?
  • What goals have my child selected during this quarter and how is he/she making progress
  • towards those goals?
  • What is my child expected to learn, know, and do at this grade level?
  • How is my child challenged when he/she is doing well at something?
  • What type of support does my child receive when he/she needs extra help?
  • What type of support does my child receive when he/she needs extra help?
  • How does my child get along with classmates and other adults?
  • What does my child get excited about learning?
  • Are there times when my child is more or less engaged?
  • Are there other services or programs that could help my child?
  • How can I support my child at home?

Remember your conference is only 20 minutes and that another parent is waiting to talk with your child’s teacher. If you feel you need additional time with the teacher please make an appointment for additional time. Don’t forget to share the information you learned at the conference with your child.

Teachers work at Laguna because they care about your children and want to help you, and they want to see your child find success.

Happy Conferences!
