Optimistic October / UN OCTUBRE CON OPT IMISMO

Life is far from perfect, but there are lots of reasons for optimism. Setting positive goals for the future gives our lives a sense of direction and purpose. And although we face many challenges there are also lots of reasons to stay hopeful. By consciously choosing our priorities we can overcome issues, make progress and focus on what really matters.

La vida está lejos de ser perfecta, pero hay muchas razones para el optimismo. Establecer metas positivas para el futuro le da a nuestra vida un sentido de dirección y propósito. Y aunque enfrentamos muchos desafíos, también hay muchas razones para mantener la esperanza. Al elegir conscientemente nuestras prioridades, podemos superar los problemas, avanzar y enfocarnos en lo que realmente importa.

Student-Led Goal Setting Conference

On Wednesday, October 13th from 4:00 - 8:00 pm and Thursday, October 14th from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm Baker Prairie will be holding virtual student led goal setting conferences with students, parents/guardians and your student’s advisory teacher through ZOOM. In this conference, your student will explain some of the goals they have set for this year and some of the challenges they may face in reaching those goals. Early in the year is a great time to make sure parents/guardians and teachers are all aligned and ready to provide guidance and support. Your advisory teacher will also be able to let you know about Baker Prairie resources that will help your student be successful. Your student’s Advisory teacher will be reaching out through email with information for you to sign up for you 15 time slot. Thank you for taking the time to attend this meeting.

Individual Teacher Conference

In addition to the student-led Goal Setting Conferences, parents/guardians may also want to meet with individual teachers or a teacher may request to meet with you. Teachers will be emailing out information for you to sign up for an individual virtual conference time the week of October 11-14 through ZOOM. These conferences will be no more than 5 minutes long. It is best if the student is present so that they can participate in the discussion and provide their perspective.
