STUDENT-LED CONFERENCES (Oct., 22 and 27)
Fall conferences will be held on Thursday, Oct. 22 and Tuesday, Oct.27. Students and parents/guardians are both part of this format.
The focus of the student-led conferences is to allow your child to demonstrate his/her scholastic accomplishments. As a family member, you can provide encouragement and help your student set goals for the remainder of the year.
Some of our goals for this conference format are:
● To help families understand what is taking place in the classroom
● To communicate about student learning
● To accept ownership for learning and behavior
● To enhance organizational and leadership skills
● To build self-esteem through the development of self-confidence
Each conference will last approximately 10 minutes and we encourage students and family members to visit as many teachers as they would like, in each teacher’s classroom. There will be numerous student-led conferences taking place at one time within each classroom. We invite you to begin student-led conferencing in any of your child’s teachers, when there is an open space in their classroom. Throughout this process there will be opportunities to have brief conversations with teachers and your child.
