As first semester is underway and the mid-term is here, Fuzhou Lakeside International School welcomed families for Parent-Teacher Conference (PTC) sessions on Friday, November 15th. Twice each school year, FLIS parents are given options for morning or afternoon sessions in order to meet and discuss student progress, strengths and areas for improvement with homeroom and specialist teachers. As a courtesy to families, conferences are held with live interpretation and language translation support from FLIS bilingual teachers and delicious snacks are available throughout the day for those participating.
During this opportune time, parents and teachers communicate and collaborate on important educational areas such as:
Student progress and data
Student knowledge, skills and understanding of academic subject and specialist subject areas
Daily routines and habits that contribute to academic excellence, health and well-being
Student preferred learning styles, behavioral and personal goals regarding social-emotional development and character education
Student needs and any family areas of concern that may affect student learning
Enrichment and intervention strategies to help support student learning both at home and school
As the tradition at FLIS is focusing on thankfulness in November, it is fitting to acknowledge how grateful we are to our dedicated staff and families as we continue to contribute and collaborate together, working toward shared educational goals for students. Acknowledging student progress, achievement, and learning goals within our school community helps inspire students to continue to dream big! Until the next mid-term PTCs...keep on striving ahead everyone!
