    Parent Night
    By TDSteacher

    Clip to ScrapBook
    1) At my school, we have separate Parent Nights for Lower School and Middle School. Middle School has theirs first, during the second week of school. We in Lower School have oursduring the third week of school - gives us more time to get student work on bulletin boards! We hold them in the evening, usually 6:30-8:00 PM.

    2) We don't have any great way to handle conflicts for parents with kids in different grades in the same division. If both parents can come, they'll split up and hit different grades. If only one parent can come, then they have to choose which classroom presentation to attend - usually the one for the teacher they've never had before. Then they'll swing by the other room and pick up any handouts.

    3) Our attendance is usually good; I'd estimate 75%. We don't do anything in particular to entice parents to come. We just announce the dates.
