Celebration of Learning - Student - Led Conferences on Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

 

March 13, 2017

 

Celebration of Learning – Student-led Conference

 

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

Conference time is quickly approaching. This an important part of our school’s evaluation and reporting process. We invite you to attend a Celebration of Learning, which is a student-led conference that will take place on March 22, 2017 from 4:00 – 7:00 PM.

 

The goal of Celebration of Learning is to offer concrete and meaningful examples of your child’s progress. This type of conference provides students with an opportunity to assume responsibility for informing their parents of how they are doing while engaging them in communicating the learning process. Your child will lead you through a variety of activities that have been designed to help him/her demonstrate their progress in various subject areas.

 

It is not necessary to have a set schedule for this type of conference, as several students can go through the activities at the same time.  Teachers will be present in the classroom to answer any questions that you may have.

 

Celebration of Learning typically takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.  Should your child’s teacher feel that it is necessary to have a more in-depth meeting, they will contact you.  The morning of Friday, March 24, 2017 has been set aside for these meetings.  As always, if you would like to meet with your child’s teacher feel free to contact the school at any time.

 

We hope you will be able to join us for this opportunity to celebrate your child’s growth and development!

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Russ Clarke

Principal
