Event Details

On March 30 and April 1, students in grades 5-8 will host a “student-led conference” in lieu of the traditional parent-teacher format. In student-led conferencing, students direct the conference with their parent(s) and teacher.  They take ownership of their work, accomplishments, and plans for improvement as they share their portfolios and report cards with their parent(s).  

As parents or family members, your role will be to focus on the learning process, not just the grade, as your child leads you through his/her portfolio. Because (s)he will ask you to reflect back on what you hear about each subject, please be ready to recognize your child’s achievements and ask him/her questions.

Our students are very excited about this opportunity and are busy preparing their portfolios. We believe that students are empowered, and their future success is assured when they are accountable for their work, reflect and communicate their progress, and set learning goals.

Thank you in advance for being there to listen to your student. We want to make sure that you have the opportunity to come in to the school when it is best for you. Conferences will take place all day Wednesday and Thursday and Saturday.  Please select a time frame for when we should expect to see you.  If none of the times work for you, please call or text the Grade Level Chairs of your child’s grade level.  Please tear off the bottom and send it back with your student to turn in to their teacher.  Thank you for your time

Very sincerely,
