We are very excited about a new format for conferences for the 2018-19 school year!
We received awesome feedback from our Fall Student-Led Conferences and (with a few changes!) are happy to continue with this format for Spring Conferences as well. Research has shown that when young people spend time in class reflecting on their learning, it helps to create a solid plan of how to succeed in classes that are challenging. Ultimately this can lead to greater engagement as the students take ownership of
their learning and growth. It is important your student attends conferences with you. Your student will be in charge of leading the conversation explaining his or her progress, reflecting on their accomplishments, and trying to find solutions for any challenges they may face in class. To prepare for conferences, students will be working on short reflections of all their classes during AG next week. AG Teachers will be having discussions with students and guiding them as they work through their challenges and successes.
Spring Conferences will take place in the SHS Gym on Monday, March 11, 2019 from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. These conferences will be arena style. We look forward to seeing you there!
