Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held at Bryant Middle School on Monday, November 13th from 4 – 7:00 p.m. and on Tuesday, November 14th from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. Report cards from the first marking period will be handed out to parents during the two days of P/T Conferences.
Read what the experts are saying about P/T Conferences (report posted on NEA website):
“When schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.” That’s the conclusion of A New Wave of Evidence, a report from Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (2002).
The report, a synthesis of research on parent involvement over the past decade, also found that, regardless of family income or background, students with involved parents are more likely to:
- Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
- Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
- Attend school regularly
- Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
- Graduate and go on to postsecondary education (see A New Wave of Evidence, Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, 2002 – in references below).
Please consider joining us at Bryant for P/T Conferences to help your child be more successful in school.
