    Student Led Conferences
    Feb 25, 2021
    01:45 PM - 01:45 PM

    Student-Led Conferences will be done differently than in previous years.  And each classroom teacher may be doing things a little bit differently than other classroom teachers but there will be some common elements across the school.  Teachers will be sharing student learning with parents, some through Fresh Grade, some through sending the work home in the backpack.  Teachers will be working with students to create learning goals which will also be shared with parents.  And teachers will request parents share a learning goal by Feb. 25 (which was the original date of our student-led conferences).  Some teachers might be sharing student learning already and there will not be more, other teachers might share work over a week or two, and still others might send home a folder of collected work.  Although there will be differences, the end result will be similar, we want students, parents and teachers to collaborate on Learning Goals for each student.  These goals will be reported out in our second term report cards that go home on Wednesday, March 17.​
