Message from the Principal


WHAT IS A STUDENT LED CONFERENCE?In the student-led conference format, students and teachers prepare together, and then students lead the conference while teachers facilitate. “The triad then sits together to review and discuss the work and the student’s progress. The message, once again, is that the students are responsible for their own success.” Student-led conference models vary, but the premise is the same: “This is the student’s moment to share his or her reflections on achievements and challenges.”PLAN NOW FOR STUDENT LED CONFERENCESThe teachers of grades KG5 through Grade 5 are looking forward to facilitating student led conferences on Wednesday, March 27th. Parents will be notified of an assigned time. Students MUST attend the conference. Report cards will be sent home via email on Monday, March 25th. Should parents have more than one conference, we will ensure the conferences set up for your family is set for one day, back to back. Students from KG5 to Grade 5 will be dismissed at 12:00 p.m. on conference day. Student led conferences will be held three at a time in half an hour intervals between 12:45 – 5:15 pm.Conferences in KG3 and KG4 will not be student led and will be held throughout the day of Wednesday, March 27th. Parents will receive notification as to their scheduled time.¿QUÉ ES UNA CONFERENCIA DIRIGIDA POR EL ALUMNO?En una conferencia dirigida por el alumno los estudiantes y sus profesores preparan la conferencia en conjunto y luego los mismos alumnos la dirigen mientras el maestro ayuda facilitando. “ Las tres personas (alumno, maestro y padre de familia) se sientan juntos a revisar y discutir el trabajo y el progreso del estudiante”.Los modelos de conferencia dirigida por el estudiante varían, pero la premisa es siempre la misma: “ Este es el momento que utiliza el/ la estudiante para compartir sus reflexiones acerca de sus logros y desafíos”.PREPÁRENSE AHORA PARA LAS CONFERENCIAS DIRIGIDAS POR EL ALUMNOLos profesores de KG5 a 5 grado estarán muy contentos de facilitar las conferencias dirigidas por el alumno el miércoles 27 de marzo.
