We believe the most productive time spent during Fall Family Weekend occurs during parent/teacher conferences. Even though student attendance at conferences is not required, we repeatedly find having a student present elevates the conversation and empowers the student to self-advocate and discuss the successes (and challenges) they are encountering academically. Our advice to you, as parents, is to enter each of your child’s conferences with the perspective that we, teachers and parents together, are working to move students along a growth continuum in all areas of student life at Proctor. If your child has had a perfectly smooth ride through Proctor, we are missing an opportunity to push them just a little bit further outside their comfort zone!
