This year I tried to do all my initial parent conferences in three days.
I announced at Open House (and through three subsequent notes home) that I would be coming in at 6:45 a.m. and staying until 5 p.m. from Tuesday through Thursday to accommodate working parents. Those three days were loooong, but I think I like getting most of the conferences taken care of right away, instead of giving up my planning time every single day for a month. Thanks to intense badgering, I have now met with ALL of my families except one. That might be a personal record.
Overall I would say things went well. A few highlights:
Obviously, I’m kidding. My kids’ parents are perfectly lovely. And yes, I captioned these myself at icanhascheezburger.
