Discussed new form for Preschool Parent Teacher Conferences

Kelly Beyer explained how the form they usually go over with parents on the GOLD standards at conferences are not very “parent friendly”.  The teachers created their own form to show exactly where the students are at with meeting the Gold Standards.
