GR 1-6 Student LED Conferences

Student LED Conferences for all students and parents will be on Wednesday, March 22nd.  

Student LED Conferences are a valuable experience for children and it is also an opportunity for each child to do some curriculum activities with their parents.  Activities will be set up in each classroom for parents and students to work through.  This process will clearly demonstrate and build a better understanding of how your child learns, what frustrates them and what makes them feel successful.  These conferences are designed to give you a rare view into your child’s day. We encourage all parents to come out and celebrate your child’s education!

The student-led conference is a very special and exciting time for students.  Your child will depend on your undivided and personal attention for the entire conference.  Please note that there will be several student-led conferences conducted in the classroom at the same time. It is important that all conferences have the opportunity to be conducted without distractions.  For this reason, we ask that siblings not accompany you to the conference.  School-aged siblings may read or engage in a quiet activity in the hall while they await their own conference.  As well, we ask for cell phones to be set on vibrate. We thank you for your cooperation in helping to ensure all parents can enjoy this important time with their child.  

Here is a brief overview of all of our roles that evening:
