Parent-teacher conferences are an opportunity to engage in conversation about your child’s learning. Parents/guardians and teachers are able to connect face-to-face and communicate openly about student learning, especially with respect to areas of strength and areas of growth. They help build and sustain respectful relationships that allow both parties to share information and develop strategies to support student success.​​​

This year, during the January and April conference time, students and families will participate in Student-Led Conferences.   A student led conference follows a format in which your child is in charge and will lead the experience. Student-led conferences have many benefits for both the students and parents. Students benefit by accepting responsibility for reporting their progress to their parents. The student is accountable for the work they produce, improved communication, learning organizational systems and increasing leadership skills. Students learn about time-management techniques, problem solving strategies, decision-making methods, and self-evaluation.

Parents benefit by seeing their children as enthusiastic, adept beings within the classroom who can adequately report what they are doing and how well they are doing at school. Most important, parents have the opportunity to encourage their children and provide positive and accepting feedback for their children’s efforts and learning.

Student-led conferences should last approximately 45 minutes for your child to show you everything they are planning to share. Please try not to rush them, this is a really big day for them. Students love to share what they know and what they are learning!  Because this is a special time for parents/ guardians and their children, we ask that extended family remain at home and allow the parent/ guardian the time to bond and examine school work.

Student-led conferences will follow the following format in the classroom:

  • Students will arrive at their classroom with their parent/ guardian (If you have additional children with you, please plan a silent activity for them to participate in out in the hall (books, iPad and headphones)). This will enable you to give your interview student undivided attention.
  • Each student directs the conference. They have planned and practiced the steps for the conference and are hopeful to execute their plan successfully.
  • Students will have an agenda to follow, work samples to show you and learning opportunities to share with you.
  • During the interview parents have an opportunity to ask their children questions and provide lots of encouragement and praise for their learning, hard work and effort.
  • At the end of the conference parents will have an opportunity to provide their child with feedback and praise for their accomplishments. Please remember to say good-bye to your teacher.
  • Please remember to visit the music and French rooms. If your child sees our Literacy Specialist or ELL Specialists please ensure you drop by their room as well.

If you are unable to attend the scheduled time for student led conferences, please connect with your child’s teachers. This is one of the formal reporting opportunities in the school year.
