Seventh-grade English teacher Kelly Jones meets with a parent during parent/teacher conferences.

 Over the course of two nights, parents were given an opportunity to meet with their children’s teachers, as a way to monitor student progress and address any concerns.

A sign welcomes parents to Duncan Middle School.

On Monday and Tuesday, Duncan Middle School hosted parent teacher conferences between 3:30 and 7 p.m. with the majority of the faculty present. Conferences take place midway through each semester, typically before Fall Break and Spring Break.

“It makes me happy to see that the parents take a great interest in their child’s grades and school life,” Kelly Jones, seventh-grade English teacher said.

While many of the teachers remained busy Monday night, rain and colder weather reduced the number of parents and students who attended conferences Tuesday. On that night, many of the classrooms had no one in them.

Brenda Hurley, eighth-grade English teacher, said parent/teacher conferences are important because they help parents get more involved in the education process.

“In this room sit the most important people in the world,” Hurley said.
