2017 Parent and Student- Led Conferences
Over the course of the school year, your child will select work samples from the different content areas, analyze his or her strengths or learning challenges and reflect on possible goals for future learning.
The student-led conference will give your child the opportunity to lead a conversation about pieces of work from their classes, their progress with the Habits of a Scholar and more generally about his or her strengths and challenges in the different disciplines. The conference also:
- Encourages students, parents and teachers to openly communicate as equal partners about student achievement
- Enhances students‘ oral communication skills
- Builds students’ self-confidence and ability to reflect
- Fosters students accountability and growth of organizational skills
Parents will be given the opportunity to listen to these reflections, acknowledge his or her effort and growth, and ask questions to your child.
