Student-Led Conferences – Nov 3 & 4

On Thursday, November 3rd and Friday, November 4th we will be holding our Fall Student-Led Conferences for the 2016-2017 academic school year.

Student-Led Conferences provide students and parents with the opportunity to discuss areas of improvement and strengths, and review progress.  It also helps students develop their communication, leadership and organizational skills.  This is a unique opportunity for your student to celebrate their achievements and to take ownership in their learning.  Most importantly, it is an excellent chance for you to share in their pride and show how much you care about their education.  Conferences will be held in the gymnasium and cafeteria and will usually last 20-30 minutes.

Your student has worked hard to prepare for these conferences and we hope that you will make every effort to attend.  We look forward to seeing you and your student!

Please call our Office if you want more information or you need a Conference Request Form.
