How to Talk with Youth about Alcohol and Drugs



Back to School Parent-Teacher Conferences

Howard-Winn will kickoff the 2016-17 school year with 
Back to School Parent-Teacher Conferences on 
Tuesday, August 23rd. 

7th-12th grade conference schedule:
1:00 - 4:00  Open Conference times available for students and parents to meet individually with any teachers they would like.

5:15 - 6:00  Students and Parents meet with Homebase teachers for Laptop distribution and other information.

6:00 - 8:00  Students and Parents will run through a shortened version of their students schedule to meet each teacher and hear about each class.

The staff is looking forward to this time with parents. Teachers will inform parents and students about grade level standards and curriculum, the daily schedule of the classroom, pupil progress reporting, special programs, the classroom/school behavior plan, classroom expectations and other pertinent information. Parents and students can ask questions and discuss any specific individual concerns with the teacher at this time also. Students will have the opportunity to bring in their classroom supplies, get to know the teacher and become familiar with the room.

Howard-Winn is utilizing these conferences to better connect and build meaningful relationships with parents and students before the school year starts. Kids do better in school when parents are involved in their academic lives. Attending back-to-school conferences is a great way to establish that relationship. We will extend this relationship by also providing Student Led Parent-Teacher conferences in November and again in February. These conferences are a chance to continue conversations between parents and teachers, and to discuss strategies to help students do their best in class. Meetings between the parents and the teacher also let students know that what goes on in school will be shared at home. Parents are also encouraged to request meetings with teachers, principals, school counselors, or other school staff at any time during the school year if they have questions or concerns.



The first day of classes for Howard-Winn 
students for the 
2016-17 school year will be 
Wednesday, August 24th, 2016.
