Student Led Conferences
Student-Led Conferences are around the corner. Teachers will be in their classrooms from 5:30-8:00 on Oct. 16, 18 and 23. The focus of the student-led conferences is to allow your child to demonstrate his/her scholastic accomplishments. As a family member, you can provide encouragement and help your student set goals for the remainder of the year. Progress Reports have been posted to the Parent Portal.
Our goals for this conference format are:
To help families understand what is taking place in the classroom
To communicate about student learning
To help students accept ownership for learning and behavior
To support students in enhancing organizational and leadership skills
To assist students in building self-esteem and self-confidence
Each conference will last approximately 10 minutes and we encourage students and family members to visit as many teachers as they would like, in each teacher’s classroom. There will be numerous student-led conferences taking place at one time within each classroom. We invite you to begin student-led conferencing in any of your child’s teachers’ classrooms, when there is an open space. Throughout this process there will be opportunities to have brief conversations with teachers and your child.
We look forward to working with you and your student!

With the cooler temperatures coming, we want to make sure everyone is aware of our cold weather policy. Our students will be outdoors until the bell rings every day, unless the weather drops below 20 degrees or it's significantly raining/snowing. Only in these instances will we open up the cafeteria and allow students to enter the building before the first bell. Please make sure your student is dressing appropriately for the season!

These 450 words come from a list of books carefully selected by the Bee’s editorial team for their engaging and age-appropriate content, as well as their rich vocabulary.
