Despite wet weather and the lure of the Olympic telecast, many students and parents attended SFJH’s Parent/Teacher conference last night.  Every term, parents have the opportunity to meet with their student’s teachers and get a quick update on their progress toward proficiency.  Most teachers give parents a copy of their student’s progress report which includes a list of the core skills students are working on that term.  Parents can easily see where their students are on the continuum of skill proficiency.
