Student-Led Conferences: A Celebration of Learning – Term 2
March 7th 2017 (4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.)
Student-led conferences will be held on the evening of Tuesday, March 7th. The conferences are a celebration of all the hard work your child has accomplished. We hope you will come out and share in your child’s progress.
Conferences will be held in your child’s various classroom environments. Families are welcome to visit various classrooms any time between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. This will be done in an open house format and therefore parents will not be required to book a conference time. Please come when it best suits you. The process of our student-led conferences is designed to paint a clear picture of your child’s learning to date. Students have the responsibility of taking an active role in explaining and demonstrating their learning and setting goals for improvement.
During these conferences, you will have the opportunity to look through work samples and/or participate in some activities together with your child. Throughout the evening, you will move from one classroom/subject area to another at your leisure. Please note that there will be other families in the classrooms at the same time. If at any point you feel a particular classroom is too busy at the time of your arrival, please feel free to visit another learning environment and return to any classroom at a later time during your visit. Should you wish to discuss something of a particularly sensitive nature, we invite you to schedule a meeting with a particular teacher at a later date.
One on one appointments will be available for Mme Marcoux (Guidance/Resource), and Mme Buckwold (Principal). Please call the school office at (204) 837-1361 to book an appointment with the above mentioned staff members.
It is very important for your child to be able to discuss his/her progress at the conference and hear your praise and encouragement for his/her accomplishments. Please make an effort to attend. The staff at Ness Middle School looks forward to seeing you there.
