Student-Parent-Teacher Conferences

We will be approaching Parent-Teacher Conferences a little bit differently this year. Prior to the 26th, students will spend part of each class identifying one thing they are doing well and one area of growth. We hope that this will spur students to take charge of their own learning and lead some of the discussion during conferences. We encourage all students to accompany their parents to conferences.

Each student will also have a scavenger hunt/ Bingo card to complete. Each task on the card will help them to discuss a different aspect of their day with a parent or guardian and those that complete at least 5 tasks will be entered for prizes and eligible for an incentive.

Survivor's Club Author Presentation

Michael Bornstein survived for seven months inside Auschwitz, where the average lifespan of a child was just two weeks. Mr. Bornstein co-authored a book, Survivor's Club, with his daughter, Debbie, sharing his story. He will be speaking to 5-12 grade students during the day. That evening, at St. George, he will share his message with the larger community. We are able to bring Mr. Bornstein here with the help of many community organizations and hope you can join us to hear him speak. A complete list of our sponsors will be included in the November newsletter as we are still securing donors.

Parent Advisory Committee Meeting

Due to the new structure of Parent-Teacher Conferences, we are unable to hold this committee meeting that evening. Please join our Parent Involvement Committee for the first of our quarterly meetings. We will review events from last year, gather feedback from parent-teacher conferences and plan family involvement events for the upcoming year.
