We had parent conferences tonight from 4:30 to 7:30 pm.
The conferences are open to any parent who chooses to come, plus we were encouraged to invite those parents we really need to see. Guidance had sent out failure letters a few weeks ago to 17 of our lovelies - which were supposed to be signed by a parent and returned, however, none have been - so we decided we would send a special invitation to these seventeen parents, plus a few others with kids who are borderline.
So, we reprinted the failure letters, attached an invitation asking them to come to the conference so we could figure out how to help their child, and stapled these into the kids' agendas.
Any guesses on how many parents The Team saw tonight?
Not. A. Single. Freaking. Parent.
I'm going to go bang my head against a wall.
