Conferences are Here

At Selkirk we are trying something new for spring conferences. The conference format is different from last year. We are emphasizing student ownership of learning which means you'll be accompanying your student as they share some of their learning. Teachers will be available for informal conversations both in classrooms and in areas where projects are displayed, similar to how we've done arena in the past.

Please take a look at the attachment for the conference format.

The format will take place on Wednesday from 1-3pm and on Thursday from 1-4pm and 4:30-5:30pm.
