Mapleton Junior High School just had its semi-annual Parent Teacher Conference on Thursday, February 16, 2012. On Parent/Teacher night, teachers stay after school until 7:30pm. The event provides parents time to talk to teachers about their students’ behavior in class and the students grades in that particular class. They could also discuss, if necessary, solutions to help their student be more successful. It took place in the school’s cafetorium and the main gym, as usual. Most parents say that it’s very beneficial. It lets them know how their child is doing in school from the teacher’s point of view. Parents can also hear what the child is doing well at academically. Bethany Child, an MJHS parent said, “It’s important for a parent and teacher to meet and talk about the student. It makes the whole school experience better because the parent can then put a face to each teacher that their child talks about. It helps make the parent more a part of the student’s education. It also gives the parents a chance to ask any questions they may have for teachers.” Thanks to parents and teachers for helping to make this latest conference a great one.
