- HOMESTEAD SCHOOL -

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a wonderful February break. Homestead School is back in full swing, with a variety of exciting events coming up.

Upcoming Important Events
Parent Teacher Conferences PTC are scheduled for March 4th and 5th. These conferences are very important not only for us as parents, but for our children and teachers as well. These meetings allow for open communication between the parents and teachers. Below are some helpful tips to think about prior to going into your conference:

  • Begin and end the meeting on a positive note
  • Prepare questions in advance
  • Take notes
  • Be specific when referring to your child and their work
  • Leave with a clear statement of what you will work on, and what the teacher will do moving forward.
