Spring Conferences

All parents and students will be invited to attend a conference in May. In order to close our 8th grade advisory program and to have time to reflect on middle school academically, each 8th grade student will be preparing to lead a parent-student-teacher conference. Our 8th grade advisory program has been reflecting on student work, progress, and goal setting while meeting bi-monthly throughout the school year. Each parent and student will have a student-led conference in May after school, so you will be offered an opportunity to meet with a faculty member and your student before the end of the school year.  Your student's advisor should contact you at the end of April or beginning of May, so please be on the lookout for that message coming soon - the time will be upon us sooner than we can imagine!

Since we've planned to meet with each parent and their student during the student-led conferences in May, our March conferences have a very limited number of spots. If you need to speak with the 8th grade team as a whole group before the May conference dates, we can send an invitation to you to include you in those conferences.  If you do not have any pressing concerns, we are looking forward to seeing you at student-led conferences in May!  The students are doing a great job of preparing for their conferences and we can't wait to meet with everyone later this spring! To receive a conference invitation, please email Doug Haskins.
