Parent Teacher Meetings

Book through the school office

  • Start: 18/09/2019 3:15 PM

Location: EPSS Hall

We encourage parents and carers to keep in contact with the progress their children are making at school and chatting to our teachers is one of the best ways to do this. Teachers keep in touch with parents various times throughout the school week and in various ways such as phone and email. In Term 3 each year, we offer the Parent-Teacher evening as an opportunity to catch up with teachers. This term it will be on Wednesday 18th September 3:15 – 6pm. Class teachers, LEAP teachers as well as Specialist teachers will be available (these teachers also have useful insights to share about students, their behaviour and learning). The meetings are also a good chance to start or continue discussions about the best form of support for students and plans, programs or adjustments that may be in place or needed for students. Many of our class teachers will present work samples, and a report of the student’s Class Adjustment Plan during the meeting. This report details information such as – - Student test results - Support areas being targeted for the student (e.g. At risk English or Maths; or Extension learning) - Specific adjustments made by teachers for individual students to support their learning according to the area of support being targeted - Reading goals for students In the case that you are reading and uncertain about what you might talk with teachers about, we can suggest some of the following questions to ask - - What are my child's individual reading goals? How can I help them achieve these goals? - What areas of the curriculum is my child doing well or having difficulty with? - What has my child been learning in LEAP? - What type of support or adjustments is my child's teacher making for my child to help them improve? - Is my child regularly in The Zone? Do they behave well in Specialist and LEAP lessons as well as class lessons? To make a booking with a teacher on Wednesday 18th September – please phone our friendly admin ladies on 4925 4333. If you are unable to make it this evening and would like to arrange an alternative opportunity to meet with a teacher, please reply to admin@emuparkss.eq.edu.au and we will return communication to make arrangements with you.
