Friday when I should have sent home parent-teacher conference confirmations, I remembered AFTER the last child had left. So Monday mornings conference wasn’t confirmed, and one of my Tuesday morning confirmations didn’t get home on Monday, because the child was absent on Monday. Other than that, it has gone pretty well. If I don’t count those two, out of 15 scheduled conferences, I had 11 of them. Not bad.
Tomorrow, there isn’t any school for the students. I have 11 conferences scheduled during the day tomorrow. I’ll try to get the rest of them made up or finished on Thursday or Friday. So far they are going really well. It’s been nice to be able to talk to so many of the parents and tell them just how great their children are, and how well they are doing. Putting together the report cards and the material for the conferences made me realize that my class really was doing better than I had previously thought. There is this small core of about 5 kids who are really struggling, but the rest of them actually are doing pretty well.
