Student Led Conferences
Kelly students are currently busy preparing for our upcoming Student-Led Conferences on November 20. We used this format for the first time last Spring and had over whelming positive feed back from parents. At this conference, your son or daughter will act as a guide and present to you a portfolio of some of the work they have completed this year as well as goals they are working toward.
This is an opportunity for your student to show ownership of their learning as they articulate to you what they have been learning, why it is important, and how it has affected them. Based upon the work in the portfolio, you and your student will consider their educational growth and formulate learning goals for the remainder of this year and into next year. This student-led conference will take place in your student's advisory classroom and last approximately 20-30 minutes. The advisory teacher will be present to provide some information, but the majority of the conference is shared between student and parent/guardian. It is very important that both you and your student attend this conference. We hope to see each and every parent or guardian and their child at this exciting event, and we look forward to hearing your comments after the experience. If we can answer any other questions, please do not hesitate to call.
