Student-Led Conferences are Coming!
October 24, 2019
On Thursday, November 14, we will host Student-Led Progress Conferences, (aka Parent/Teacher Conferences). Afternoon sessions are between 12:40 PM – 2:40 PM and evening sessions are between 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM. Please schedule your individual conference directly with your child’s teacher/s.
All students in grades K – 5 must attend their conferences. These conferences are a time for students to share their learning with their parents. During this time, your child will be the main facilitator, leading you through a discussion of his/her work including established academic and social goals. Having your child lead his/her conference is a way to maximize ownership of learning. The involvement of the student in the conferencing process promotes three elements essential to improving student performance in school:
Relevance; why students are learning what we are teaching
Responsibility; making the student more responsible for learning
Reporting to parents how students are progressing in learning
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that November 14 is a half day, and we will dismiss ALL students at 11:40 AM.
Thank you for your involvement and support. We look forward to seeing you at your child’s conference!
