Beginning today, kindergarten parents meet with teachers

0 comments

Beginning today, parents and guardians of children entering kindergarten, Head Start and Bright Futures will meet with their pupils' teachers today.

Parent-teacher conferences will last until Sept. 12, across the city. To find out the hours, contact your local school. These meet-and-greets are crucial for everyone involved. Parents, this is the best time to pass on to your student's teacher important information about your child’s likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses and any concerns that you may have. Read more tips from education.com about transitioning to kindergarten.

Kindergarten is such an exciting time for both parents and students. Gone are the days of perpetual play. It's a time of transition from home to the start of more formal schooling.

My five-year-old cousin, who lives in Massachusetts, called me last night (even though she should have been in bed) to remind me about her first day of kindergarten, which is today. I was bubbling with pride and excitement.

This is the beginning of a long journey for her, as it will be for the many other tikes who begin kindergarten in Philadelphia on Sept. 13. 

So, parents do you want to share any first-day-at-kindergarten stories with us? If so, shoot me an email at talesd@phillynews.com. Names do not have to be used. Also, follow me on Twitter @DNSchools.
