All Middle School parents are asked to sign up (with their child) to attend student-led conferences with them Feb. 27th and 28th. Conference slots will begin after school and run until 7:30pm on Thursday Feb. 27th, and will run all day (8:30am-3:45pm) on Friday the 28th. [There will be no school on Friday the 28th for Lower and Middle School students to accommodate conferences].
How many teachers should we sign up to meet with?
Please sign up for a slot with each of your child's teachers and your child's advisor.
What will happen during student-led conferences?
Your child will show you what they have been working on in each class and will talk with you about their areas of strength and areas of "not yet." Teachers will be on hand for the conferences, however, it is expected that the student take the lead during these meetings. Advisory periods and some class time has been dedicated to the preparation for these conferences so that the students are ready!
What is the value of student-led conferences?
- students take ownership of their learning
- students recognize that parents and teachers are partners for their success
- students strengthen communication and presentation skills
- students think about their thinking (metacognition), which is proven to have impact on depth of learning
