Student lead conference
Student lead conferences will be held February 21. Please sign up for a time slot to come and meet with your child. Your child will lead the conference and show you some of their goals and academics. These will be completely lead by your child, this is not an individual conferences with the teacher like we do in the fall. Do not worry, I will have a list of questions that you can ask your child. We will also run conferences in a group format, so several different families can sign up for the same time and sit with your child. We will also take time to look at our current project, during our PBL showcase.
Student led conference time slots from: 4:00-4:5:15
PBL showcase: 5:30-6:00
