Cowart's Common Room
Parents evening

How often do you have to attend parents meetings?
I am off to the 5th or 6th this school year for my daughter's school.
Whereas we only had one for my son's class so far. I am really fed up with all these school dos as I foolishly volunteered to help organize them with the teacher so every evening means one appointment extra (at least)

I dont recall them being any more frequent than once a year, unless they were sitting mocks, and had exams coming up to get parents to help focus their child's study.

Westerwitch's Avatar I only seem to remember ours once a year for each child.

KittyB's Avatar We have them once a term, so three a year.

Vic's Avatar At our school each year group has one parents evening per year. That is plenty!

Faith's Avatar Used to go to two a year. That was enough.

Milla's Avatar we have 2 a year, autumn term and spring, and a written report (very template, and totally uninteresting and utterly interchangeable between the children) in the summer term.

Camilla's Avatar When my children were younger it was only once a year for each child. The same goes for my grandchildren.
